Tuesday's Menu - Oyako Donburi

We are still on Spring Break so we have been eating out a lot during lunch and then eating light meals or leftovers for dinner. Today, my son request a Japanese favorite of ours and a comfort food...Oyako Donburi. It is a Japanese bowl dish of chicken and egg...mother and child...which I believe is the meaning of the name.

I use the recipe from an Asian cookbook we have. The closest one I found is at the following site:


It is very easy to make. The finishing touch is to place strips of roasted Nori (seaweed) on top. We use the Korean style nori as it is already roaster and salted.
