Finely shred the cabbage, and slice the green onion into thin rounds.
Mix the batter together.
Prepare all the other ingredients.
Spread the batter in a circle about 15 to 18 cm in diameter on a heated electric griddle. Sprinkle the top with bonito flakes.
Put the cabbage, bean sprouts, green onion, tempura batter crumbs and dried shrimp on top of the pancake, then spread the pork belly slices on top. Pour about 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter over all.
Turn the pancake over in one go!
Press down firmly to get rid of any excess moisture.
Make the yakisoba noodles.
When the pancake is becoming softened and wilted (because the vegetables inside are getting cooked), move the whole thing on top of the yakisoba noodles.
Break 2 eggs on the griddle, and pierce the egg yolks.
While the egg is still soft-set, move the whole stack of yakisoba noodles and pancake on top of it.
Turn the whole stack over in 1 go!
Story Behind this Recipe
I thought we could only enjoy Hiroshima style okonomiyaki in restaurants! But on the contrary, it's pretty easy to make at home.
Turn it over in one go with a shout! This is very important (haha). Make sure the batter you pour in first doesn't get torn, since it will form the lid for steam-cooking the vegetables.
