How to Make Katsudon-Pork Tonkatsu Rice Bowl Recipe

Tonkatsu is a Japanese pork cutlet that's deep-fried to crispy goodness. Combine that with egg and a special sauce and you get a dish called Katsudon!

INGREDIENTS: (makes 1 serving)

1/4 onion, sliced
2-3 sprigs mitsuba (or scallions), cut into 2-inch length
1 cooked tonkatsu (click here for recipe), cut into 1-inch pieces
4 tbsp water
1/4 tsp instant dashi powder
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp sugar


Combine water, dashi powder, soy sauce, mirin and sugar in a small frying pan. Stir to combine and add the sliced onions. Cover with aluminum foil and bring to a boil. When onions are translucent, add tonkatsu and simmer over medium heat. While it's cooking, beat one egg. Pour egg over the tonkatsu and add the mitsuba. Cover and simmer for 20-30 seconds or until eggs are done to your liking. Pour mixture over a bowl of steamed rice. Enjoy while hot!
