One piece Fans have witnessed the story’s main character, Luffy, being defeated by powerful enemies multiple times over the years. While he has relied on his talented friends several times to get him back into battle, nothing has brought the future king of the pirates back into battle form more often than a giant chunk of meat.
Thanks now to One Piece: Pirate Recipes, a new One piece-inspired cookbook published by manga supplier Viz Media, you too can make hearty dishes good enough for a pirate king. The 96-page book contains recipes from moments in the series and was even “written” by Sanji, the cook of the Straw Hat Pirates. Every recipe in the cookbook is either a real translation of a meal that is written in One piece or any food inspired characters, locations or moments through the series. You can find instructions for meals like the life-saving bowl of fried rice that Sanji for Gin prepares at the beginning of the series to take inspiration from the legendary floating island of Skypiea.
One of our favorite recipes is an iconic piece of meat and Luffy’s favorite food. In case you ever need to revive a fallen friend in battle, or just need a big meaty meal for Thanksgiving, here is the recipe for Luffy’s favorite: meat on the bone.
Luffy’s favorite: meat on the bone (for 4 people)
4 chicken legs
4 hard-boiled eggs
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
3 TBSP. milk
18 ounces. (500 g) ground chicken
1 teaspoon. salt
some black pepper
- Turn chicken legs into “tulips”. Use kitchen scissors to cut the meat off the handle end of the drumstick (A). Roll the meat along the bone until it is completely inside out at the end.
- Soak the breadcrumbs in milk. Knead mixture (a.) In a bowl, then add breadcrumbs and knead again.
- Fold the meaty end of the drumstick around a hard-boiled egg (B). If the meat doesn’t cover well enough, add cuts to loosen it up. Lightly oil your hands and cover the drumstick and egg with the breadcrumbs mixture (C).
- Bake at 200 ° C (400 ° F) for 15-20 minutes, watching carefully.
