Oyaku Don


Keiko Ishida book says this dish is known as oyaku don, in Japanese, where 'oyaku' refers to 'parent and child" making reference to the use of chicken and egg in the dish. This dish is popularly eaten for family lunches in Japan.

I have tried this recipe. It looks difficult to prepare but it is actually easy. Healthy dish without oil.

Recipe for 4 persons

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Japanese steamed rice
  • 1 piece chicken breast, cut into slant slices, marinate with 1 tbsp each of soy sauce, mirin and sake
  • 1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup dashi soup stock or chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup Japanese soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup mirin
  • 1 cup Sake or Japanese Rice Wine
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 6 eggs

Preparation:

Put dashi soup stock in a pan and cook on medium heat.
Add soy sauce, mirin, and sugar in the soup and bring to a boil.
Divide stock into 4 portions.

To cook 1 serving
Put 1/2 cup of the soup in a non-stick pan.
Add one quarter of onion slices in the soup and simmer for a few minutes on medium heat.
Add 1/4 of chicken meat in the pan and simmer on low heat for a while.
Beat an egg in a bowl.
Bring the soup to a boil on medium heat, then pour the egg over.
Turn the heat down to low and put on a lid.
Serve 1 person's steamed rice in a large rice bowl.
Place the simmered chicken and egg on top of the rice.

Repeat the process.
