Let's start cooking the egg. Break the egg into a bowl, lightly season with salt and pepper, and stir 2-3 times. Add the milk and mix in well.
Melt the butter in a warmed frying pan and pour in the egg from Step 1.
When the egg begins to slightly bubble, use your chopsticks to spin the egg around in a swirling motion starting from the edges (about 2 swirls).
It's fine if the egg is only half-cooked!!
You can top with your preference of ketchup and Japanese Worcestershire-style sauce In our house, we also top our omurice with a bit of coffee creamer.
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to allow my kids to experience the nostalgic taste of my mother's cooking.
This uses a lot of butter which results in a very rich flavor. If you work through Step 3 quickly, the egg will glisten and become fluffy. Since my husband loves this, I sometimes make a mini omurice for him after he's been drinking at night.
