Every Sunday, I will post a Lazy Sunday Recipe so that anyone can make some cheap, quick, and easy recipes when all you want to do is relax at home, watch Netflix, or get over a hangover. Posts will be straight to the point, because I too am probably watching Netflix, relaxing, or getting over a hangover. :)

Traditionally, this dish is called the Ocha-zuke - a common Japanese snack offered to guests as a polite way of saying the party is over. The guests were expected to decline the offer and LEAVE IMMEDIATELY!” I decided to make this passive-aggressive snack and share it with you all!

I used a French press to seep the green tea with roasted brown rice and popcorn so that I can pour easily and without residue into the bowl. I also diced the tofu and beef into small pieces.

Traditionally, the Ocha-zuke is made with salmon roe (egg), however I used marinated beef with soy (Since it is Lazy Sunday Recipe, I used what I had in my fridge instead of using salmon roe) . The salmon roe, with it's saltiness would cut the bitterness of the green tea. The Korean beef marinated in soy, 장조림 jang-jo-rim, with the marinated quail egg, did the trick in balancing out the dish.
