“Oyakodon” Cedar Park, 2023

Tonight, I made oyakodon that turned out much better than my last attempt. This time, I used a lot of broth, which made a big difference. I also didn’t overcook the eggs, so everything was very tender. Yum!

“Oyakodon Leftovers” Cedar Park, 2023

I made oyakodon 親子丼 (my 2nd favorite food) the other day. I followed this recipe from Just One Cookbook and it came out pretty good! I overcooked the eggs a bit because I wasn’t sure if my son’s girlfriend liked runny eggs or not, but it was still yummy. I made a few servings using small single-serving pans, and for the last serving I used a lid to cover the pan. This one turned out the best, with plenty of sauce left, and the egg cooked more evenly. Must keep that in mind for next time!

Anyways, the leftovers were delicious. 😋

“親子丼” Cedar Park, 2021

Tonight I made oyakodon 親子丼 for the kids and I using a recipe from Just One Cookbook and it turned out pretty good! The recipe is for 2 servings, and uses two chicken thighs, but I upped the quantity to three.

However, after I defrosted the thighs, I noticed that it was more like 5 thighs, and not 3, so when I made the dish, the sauce wasn’t as flavorful as it should have been. It still tasted great. But I’ll remember to make more sauce or use the right amount of chicken.
