Japanese meat sauce doria with bolognese sauce, cheese and rice sprinkled with chopped parsley by kurumicooks delicious healthy easy to make cooking for your kitchen

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you might remember the other Doria recipes I published earlier this year. I made a Seafood Doria and a Chicken Doria. This time around, I've made a Doria with a meat sauce. If you don't already know, Doria is a Japanese rice based dish - think simple lasagne with rice instead of pasta and you'll get the idea.

This is one of those dishes which is great for colder weather - put this on the dinner table and you'll put a smile on even the most chapped of cheeks.

If you want to try your hand at making this, you can find the Youtube tutorial by clicking Meat sauce Doria or scroll to the bottom of the page. The written recipe is just below.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.

(PS: this is also a great way to use leftover rice if you have any in the fridge)

how to:

to make the meat sauce:

add the minced meat, salt & pepper and fry for further 1-2 mins

add the tomato, ketchup & puree, and simmer for 10-15 mins

next make the white sauce, melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and mix well, then add the milk a little at a time and mix well into a smooth sauce over a medium-low heat

mix the butter and cooked rice in a bowl (if you are using leftover cold rice, re-heat it first)

place the rice in an oven proof dish then add the layer of white sauce and top with a layer of meat sauce

add the cheese around leaving the centre as it is (i used a small plastic lid to get a nice uniform shape, but do remember to remove it before grilling!)

grill for 8-10 mins or until the cheese is golden brown

your meat sauce doria is ready. sprinkle some chopped parsley and serve
