Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Instructions

Pound the cutlets with a mallet to flatten slightly. Slash fat at edge of cutlets to keep the meat from curling during deep frying. Salt and pepper both sides. Dust with flour , dip in beaten egg, and coat both sides thickly with day old or fresh breadcrumbs, Let rest 2-3 minutes before deep frying. Heat a generous amount of oil in a heavy bottomed pot or deep-fryer to medium temperature(340 degrees), and deep-fry cutlets one at a time, turning once, till golden brown, about 6 minutes each. Remove, drain on absorbent paper, and 2Meanwhile slice onion into rounds or half-moons and in a large frying pan in a scant amount of oil, saute onion over high heat till transparent and soft. Add dashi, mirin and soy sauces to the pan. Bring to a simmer. Add the green onions. Finally pour the beaten egg over the simmering onions. Meanwhile slice onion into rounds or half-moons and in a large frying pan in a scant amount of oil, saute onion over high heat till transparent and soft. Add dashi, mirin and soy sauces to the pan. Bring to a simmer. Add the green onions. Finally pour the beaten egg over the simmering onions. Stir when the egg begins to set. the egg is done while still a little runny and juicy. (Do not cook egg until hard and dry) You want the juices to seep sown in to the rice in the bowl from the egg topping. To assemble and serve: Put a single portion of hot rice (1 1/2-2 cups) into a donburi-type bowl. Neatly arrange a sliced cutlet to cover half the rice. Use fried onion and egg topping to cover part of the cutlet and the rest of the rice. Use all the liquid. Serve immediately. Cooking: A Simple Art by Shizuo Tsuji (Kodansha) p 445

Tips

Health Tips

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

  • Here is an easy health swap: substitute brown rice for white rice. Brown rice is a whole grain, while white rice is brown rice stripped of some of its parts and much of its fiber and other nutrients. It is important to note, however, that all rice types raise your blood sugar and should be eaten in moderation. In fact, if it seems like it would work in the recipe, the best option would probably be so-called cauliflower rice.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!

  • If you're worried about cholesterol and heart disease, you may have heard you should limit your egg consumption to one egg per day or eat only egg whites. However, new research suggests you might go ahead and eat your whole eggs. It turns out egg yolk contains valuable nutrients (the cartenoids that make it yellow are great for eye health, folic acid is great for brain health, and it has vitamins A, E, D, and K) and dietary cholesterol seems to have little influence on blood cholesterol levels.

Cooking Tips

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • Mirin is a common ingredient in Japanese cuisine. It is a rice cooking wine with a low alcohol content that lends a sweet note to the dish. If you don't have mirin, the closest substitute would be sake and sugar, but you can also use white wine and a little sugar.

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.

Green Tips

  • Choose free range or organic eggs whenever possible! Even though they are more expensive, eggs are generally cheap to begin with, and eggs from cage-free chickens are worth the extra cost.

  • According to the Non-GMO Project, about 90% of the canola oil in the United States is made from genetically modified rapeseed, so if this issue is important to you be sure to buy certified organic or certified GMO-free canola oil!
