Everybody Loves Traditional Omurice

Everybody Loves Traditional Omurice

This omurice has a simple and nostalgic flavour! Seasoning the rice with Japanese ingredients is key for this recipe.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Minced meat (beef & pork)
200 g
Cooked white rice
3 bowls' worth
Cooking sake
1 tablespoon
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
4 (2 x 2)
Heavy cream
2 teaspoons (1 x 2)


1. Finely chop the onion.
2. Drizzle some oil into a frying pan and stir-fry the onion over medium heat. Once the colour begins to change, add the minced meat along with 1 tablespoon cooking sake and keep stir-frying.
3. When the meat has cooked through, add the rice, soy sauce and mirin and boil down the mixture a little.
4. While stir-frying the ingredients, gently mix everything together, being careful not to crush the rice. Add the ketchup and ponzu sauce and once everything is cooked though, plate and set aside.
5. From here on out we're going to be concentrating on one serving at a time Beat 2 eggs, add 1 teaspoon of cream and mix. Grease a frying pan and once it's a little warm, add the egg mixture. Gently stir the egg just a little after it's been to the pan to get it nice and fluffy.
6. Once the egg is half-cooked, gently lay half the rice mixture from Step 4 in the center.
7. Using the sides of the frying pan, flip over one side of the omelette while continuing to cook.
8. Transfer to a plate to finish.
