The best! I will definitely order again!

Translated from Japanese: No complaints! It’s delicious. I used a simple cooking method and only seasoned it with salted koji, garlic, and basil and cooked it. The ingredients were so good that it was really delicious. My family loved it.

Perfect for fried chicken

Translated from Japanese: I made oven fried chicken. Simply added sour cream, garlic, dried herbs (oregano, rosemary), paprika powder, salt and pepper, and bread crumbs and baked it in the oven for 1 hour.
The skin and meat were tender and delicious. The volume of each piece of meat was large and I was able to taste the taste of the meat itself.

This will be your favorite dish for your late weeknight meal. Drumsticks are so popular that there are literally millions of recipes online. See our recipe at the bottom of this page.

Chicken Drumstick Recipe Instructions

 チキンドラムスティックのレシピ

Completely defrost chicken drumsticks and pat dry with a paper towel. All you need is sea salt, paprika powder, garlic, olive oil, black pepper and lemon. 

チキンドラムスティックのレシピ

Mix well. There is no need to over spice, a couple of pinches of each spice is sufficient. Crush and mince two garlic knobs and gently rub the chicken. The paprika powder is not spicy and suitable for kids. If you want spicy drumsticks to add just a little bit of cayenne powder. 

Leave the drumsticks to marinade in the fridge for 30 min or place in a ziplock bag and keep refrigerated for up to 24h max. Before cooking, heat up the skillet or fry pan to very hot, then add extra virgin olive oil and then the drumsticks. This makes the skin crispy and darker in color. Keep rotating for about 5 min. 

Now reduce heat to low and let the drumsticks cook slowly but thoroughly. We recommend adding a lid for shorter cooking times and juicier meat. If you prefer crispy, cook without a lid on low heat, keep rotating so they cook evenly. 

Serve while hot and with wedges of lemon, great and healthy salad without dressing and barbeque sauce. 

Some people worry about the pinkish color around the bones. This is not blood but myoglobin. No matter how long you cook the chicken, the color will not change. If the meat is cooked until the color is white and the internal temperature has reached at least 70 degrees Celsius the meat is safe to eat.

Translated from Japanese: This is minced meat that you always want to keep in the freezer
In particular, the simple hamburger steak made here without any additives has become a regular in my home.

Translated from Japanese: I stir-fried onions and carrots to make dry curry!
Without using any oil, the meat was delicious because of it's simpleness and juiciness and only some spices were added!

You can firmly taste the meat

Translated from Japanese: I always make hamburger steak with grass-fed minced beef, but when I used this minced meat, the taste has changed considerably.
II could firmly taste the meat and the taste of fat was different from other beef, too. It became a very delicious hamburger steak.

Japanese

Translated from Japanese: I bought it because I want my children to eat food that is safe and of good quality. The oil was also reasonably good. I would like to order again.

J

Translated from Japanese: I stir-fried it with salt and pepper and chopped onions to form them into hamburger steaks. You can only eat this after trying it. Next, I'll eat it without salt and pepper. I will also make meat sauce! I have to keep it in stock all the time.
