Katsudon -A bowl of Tonkatsu

As you might know after so many blogs that I love Japanese food. Pork cutlets are a great source of protein.

I made Tonkatsu this week and have 2 pieces of fried pork left over.

To reheat it again  I prepared a sauce and placed the cutlets in. The sauce is flavouring the rice later. To finish this simple tasty dish a beaten egg is poured over and with a lid on top of the pot cooked for 30 to 60 seconds.
Put fresh cooked rice into a bowl and slip the Katsudon on top.

2 ready made panko fried pork cutlets
2 shallots
1 egg
6 tbsp water
1 tsp dashi powder
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp mirin
1 tsp sugar
1/2 bunch flat leaf parsley
1 stalk lovage
1 cup of cooked rice
Use a shallow pot or a pan with a lid. Mix water, dashi, soy sauce, mirin and sugar and bring to a boil. Cut the onions in small rings and cook it until the onions are done.
Cut the cutlets into 1 inch strips  and set it on top of the onions and close the lid on medium heat cook it for 3 minutes to warm through. Chop the greens and put them on top of the pork.
Beat the egg and pour it over and close the lid for 30 to 60 seconds.
