Egg-Less Katsudon/卵なしカツ丼

For lunch today, I made egg-less katsudon.

1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
3 one-bite tonkatsu
(and much more if you are not on a diet!)
100 ml water
Small amount of instant dashi
25 ml soy sauce
25 ml mirin
(Dashi, soy sauce, and mirin ratio of 4:1:1)

Simmer onion for 5 min. or so, add tonkatsu, and simmer for some more time.

玉ねぎ 中1/2個、細切り
一口カツ 3個
水 100 ml
出汁の素 少々
しょう油 25 ml
(出汁、しょう油、みりんの割合: 4:1:1)


Heat a bowl of leftover rice in a microwave, and put the contents of the frying pan on top of rice.
I had an important mission today:  Do something about the snow and icicles!!!

The Shousetsu Sheet system never fails to disappoint me!

I did all I could today.  I have to do a lot more in the near future.

I love reading your blog. I am half Japanese, but didn't get a lot of Japanese cooking recipes while growing up. I'm learning a lot from your blog. Thank you!

Badcat: Thank you for your compliment!

You can learn a lot from serious chefs, and you can also learn a lot from a lazy cook like me (laugh)!

Looking at all the snow displayed on and about your house, you should have eaten some egg too. Quite some exercise to remove the white nasty stuff and the icicles (dangerous...)

Kiki: I guess my lunch today has round 800 kcal, so it exceeded my limit of 600 kcal.

Heavy snowfall is nothing new here in the mountainous area of Niigata, but this winter's heavy snowfall is quite something.

It looks great. Unfortunately, I never have leftover tonkatsu... It disappears a couple of minutes after I fry it ;-) so I am never able to make sandwiches or katsudon, but I will one day. I will make a huge batch. You have inspired me!
Counting calories of deep-fried dishes is not easy I suppose.
I agree that you must have burnt more calories than usually, so this dish was totally merited! (The icicles look scary indeed!)

Sissi: We (a family of four) used to have no or few tonkatsu left, so I now double the amount of pork.

When dealing with icicles, I have to be very careful not to cause damage to the house, especially the windows.
