Oyako Donburi / Katsu Donburi | 親子丼・カツ丼

Introducing a very popular rice bowl which is often eaten for lunch. If you have an authentic Japanese restaurant around your living neighborhood or town, the Oyakodon and Katsudon should be available for lunch.
They Oyakodon is made with chicken, whereas the Katsudon is made with a fried pork cutlet called ‘katsu’. Both are just as tasty if you like the taste of slightly sweet soy sauce. It’s not difficult to make..so here is the recipe.
時々、食べたいなぁ〜と呟くとついつい作ってあげたくなります。私の胃の消化能力が比較的良好な時だけ出てくる品です。どちらも卵をトロトロに仕上げるのがコツかな?まぁ〜 そんなに繊細に作る料理でもないか?!です。
