Katsudon recipe for two!




Katsudon is a Japanese dish consisting of a rice bowl topped with deep-fried breaded pork cutlets mixed with egg and sauce. I've actually never had Katsudon before. A friend suggested it so I was curious enough to try. I made it last week and we loved it! In this version, I used pork strips which took a lot of work so, I recommend frying the pork loin first before chopping it into strips.


Ingredients:
2 pork loins or  1/4 lb pork strips
1 cup panko breading (Japanese breading)
3 eggs
1 cup chicken breading OR flour
Salt and pepper 
vegetable oil (enough for deep frying)

Sauce:

1 cup water
2 tbsp sugar (or to taste)
2 tbsp mirin (sweet rice wine)
2 tbsp soy sauce
chopped green onion

Instruction:


Prepare the pork.

1. Rinse the pork and pat dry. Season the pork with salt and pepper.
2. In a bowl,  lightly scramble the egg and add 1 tbsp of water.
3. Coat the pork with the chicken breading/flour. Remove excess flour. Dip it into the scrambled egg and then cover it with panko breading.
4. In a medium heat pan, p(temperature of 340-359 F), fry the pork until golden brown on both sides. Set aside to let the meat rest.

Prepare the sauce.
For the sauce, combine water, soy sauce, sugar (adjust the sweetness to your liking), mirin and chopped onion on a sauce pan over medium heat. Simmer until sure the sugar is dissolved completely.

Combine pork, sauce, and eggs.

1. In a bowl, lightly scramble the remaining two eggs.
2. On a medium-hot skillet, pour half of the sauce. Place one breaded pork loin on the skillet and then pour half of the scrambled egg over the breaded pork loin. Cover until egg is cooked. 
4. Serve on top of a bowl of rice and garnish with some green onions.
5. Do the same with the remaining breaded pork loin.

Enjoy!

New platform and dog adoption

I recently moved my blog from Tumblr to Blogger. Not an easy feat since I lost the few comments that I have from there.

On the bright side, we've decided that we're going to adopt a dog! We've been looking at rescue shelters and one of the dogs that caught my eye was Henry. We were able to meet him at his foster home last weekend and he's adorable! We played fetch with him the whole time. We were told that he came from an abusive environment and was often ignored by his owner who surrendered him to the rescue. 





We decided we wanted to take care of Henry. The rescue scheduled a home visit this week and I'm kinda nervous, especially since we live in an apartment. Will that hurt our chances of getting Henry? I hope not. I'm pretty sure we're not the only ones interested in Henry. We'll see!

How do you prepare for a home visit anyway? It's kinda weird letting other people judge us if we're going to be good dog owners, but I guess they're just looking after the dogs. This is our first time to adopt a dog so we're not really familiar with the process. Wish us luck!
