This Japanese rice bowl is a delectable meal-in-one. This version tops the rice--here seasoned with salt, rice vinegar, and mirin, according to tradition--with chicken that's been tossed with sake and cooked in a flavorful broth that's been simmered with soy sauce and more sake, which then reduces to a saucelike consistency. A poached or fried egg is essential to the dish; be sure to cook the egg until the white is set but the yolk is still runny.

Ingredients

  • 100 grams short grain rice
  • salt
  • rice wine vinegar
  • mirin
  • 3 tablespoons sake
  • 200 grams chicken
  • 130 milliliters vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 onion
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 eggs

Directions

  1. Steam the rice (use the rice cooker if you have one!) and season it with a pinch of salt, 1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar and a teaspoon of mirin. Mix well and set the rice aside to keep warm.
  2. In a bowl, add 1 tablespoon of sake to the chicken pieces.
  3. Heat the broth with the sugar, remaining sake, and soy sauce. When the broth boils, add the onion and chicken. Cook until the sauce becomes creamy.
  4. In a nonstick saucepan, break the eggs and cook them with a pinch of salt, making sure the yolk is creamy.
  5. Place the rice in a bowl, add the chicken on top with the cooking sauce and the eggs.
  6. Garnish with some chopped green onion and serve hot.

This 4 star recipe was a great way for myself and my family to experience a true Japanese meal without having to find a takeout restaurant It was infused with just the right amount of spices and flavor; without that overbearing soy sauce taste. I will be making this recipe in the near future.
