4 cm
as needed

Salt and pepper
to taste
Okonomiyaki sauce, Mayonnaise, bonito flakes, aonori
to taste


1. Whisk the eggs in a bowl, add in the minced green onions and carrots, bonito flakes, and soy sauce, and mix together. Lightly pre-boiling the carrots is a good idea.
2. Add the rice to Step 1, and mix it up so that there is no inconsistency.
3. Coat a heat pan with oil, add in half of the ingredients from Step 2, arrange into a round shape, and add the pork on top after coating it with salt and pepper.
4. Flip it over once the back side has crisped, and cook the other side in the same manner.
5. After cooking, add your favorite toppings, and you're done!

Story Behind this Recipe

I had some delicious egg-coated rice. I wonder what it would taste like fried, so I tried frying it up. It resulted in okonomiyaki!
