Hi, I am Eugenie. I asked you to choose one between omurice (オムライス 오므라이스) and bibimbap and 36 chose omurice and 27 chose bibimbap out of 72 comments. Others wanted both or recommended other dishes. Thank you for your vote and now I will do omurice, simple version as always!
Japanese Omurice Recipe オムライス
For 2 persons
- 4 oz chicken breast, diced (110g)
- 4 eggs
- ½ onion, chopped
- 5 tablespoons of carrot, chopped
- ½ clove of garlic, minced
- 2 bowls short grain rice, cooked
- 4 tablespoons ketchup
- Vegetable oil for frying
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Freshly ground pepper
First, in a bowl crack in the eggs and add ¼ teaspoon of salt and pepper. And whisk until homogenously mixed and set aside.
Then, add in vegetable oil in a large frying pan and heat over medium heat. And add in diced chicken breast and sauté for 3 minutes. Then add in carrot, onion, and garlic. And lightly season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. You can opt for mushrooms instead of carrots if you want. Add steamed short grain rice and break any lumps. If you use warm rice, it’s easier to break. And stir fry until combined.
Now out of heat, add ketchup and stir until homogeneously combined. Today I added only 4 tablespoons but you can increase the amount of ketchup as you like. Then taste and season with salt and pepper to your liking.
Now lightly grease a small frying pan with vegetable oil. I am using a refillable spray oil bottle today. Add in half of the egg mixture into the pan and cook the omelet over low heat. Don’t forget to preheat the pan before adding egg mixture. When the egg is almost done, place half of the rice on top of the omelet in the middle. This is first batch for 1 person. Then fold top and bottom side of omelet to cover the rice.
Now cover the pan with a serving plate and carefully turn the pan over on the plate.
Garnish with ketchup. Today I am using Korean ketchup, not Heinz. Do you prefer any brand for ketchup? I love omurice with greens and fresh tomato slices.
This is easy and simple Japanese comfort food. Today it was Omurice and tomorrow it’s apple pie. Get my weekly schedule at Facebook, Instagram, or Eugeniekitchen.com. Thank you for watching. Bye for now!
