80 g
120 ml
Bonito soup stock
1 teaspoon
Thinly sliced pork belly
1 slice

to taste


1. Shred the cabbage.
2. Dissolve flour in water and mix it with the bonito soup stock. Add the cabbage and mix.
3. Pour the batter into a preheated pan and save some of it. Make a dent in the center of the batter and break an egg in it.
4. Cut the pork belly into 4 pieces, place them around the egg and make a square. Put the batter you set aside on top of the egg.
5. Cook both sides of the batter for 10 minutes each. Right before you finish, add a little oil in the pan over medium heat and make the surface crispy.
6. Top with okonomiyaki sauce and mayonnaise and enjoy!!

Story Behind this Recipe

I got a lot of cabbage, so I made this to use it up.
I heard there's "Cabbage-yaki (Cabbage okonomiyaki)" in the Kansai region.
I was going to name it differently but I just cooked the cabbage so...
Remember that this is different from the authentic Cabbage-yaki.
