Even My Husband Is Convinced! Soupy Tenshin-don

Even My Husband Is Convinced! Soupy Tenshin-don

I wanted to eat Tenshin-don similar to what's served at a Chinese restaurant my husband frequents, so through a process of trial and error, I was able to reproduce the flavor that my husband approves! He said that he wanted to eat a version without sweet vinegar. Make sure to eat this with lots of sauce.

Ingredients: 1 person

Imitation crab sticks
about 3 sticks (or to your liking)
Japanese leek
about 5 cm of the white part
★Chicken stock granules
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
★Soy sauce
a little less than 1 tablespoon
★ Chinese seasoning (Chinese soup stock)
1/3 teaspoon
★Oyster sauce
1 teaspoon
a little less than a tablespoon
Sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon
Hot cooked rice
as needed


1. Finely chop the Japanese leek. Tear the imitation crab meat into bite-sized pieces.
2. In a pot, bring the ingredients marked with ★ to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon of katakuriko dissolved in water, let it thicken, and turn off the heat after adding sesame oil.
3. Beat the eggs, add them to the ingredients from step 1, heat oil in a pan, and make fluffy scrambled eggs. (Make sure not to overcook them!)
4. Put rice in a bowl, add the ingredients from Step 3, and cover with the sauce from Step 2.

Story Behind this Recipe

My husband said that he wanted to eat Tenshin-don without sweet vinegar! This is a family recipe I was finally able to recreate with after much trial and error .
Advice from COOKPAD user Chama Mama:
If you first make the fluffy scrambled eggs in the pan, serve it over rice, and then use the same pan to make the sauce, then it'll be a one pan dish made in just 5 minutes! It's nice to have less to wash . Thank you so much Chama Mama!!!
