Made with Instagram

The Mameshiba trio were too adorable for me to ignore at one of our cons this winter, so I purchased all of them and saved them for one of our Japanese recipes.

I used a combination of many different katsudon recipes for this one. I may try it again in the future, for a slightly more refined version, but this one still made an amazing dinner. It’s hard to go wrong with katsudon.

Donburi sauce recipe can be found here, at Bebeloveokazu.

“Garlic Bird” Oyakodon (Parent-Child Donburi) from Toriko

If ever there has been a dish that exists solely to indulge the deep love of garlic, it’d have to be this donburi. The name of the dish is a reflection of the fact that both chicken and egg are used in it, where they come together in a glorious harmony of flavors that pairs perfectly with the roasted garlic and a nice cup of sake.

In the manga Toriko, Old Lady Setsu makes this dish for Toriko and Komatsu while they wait for her version of the Century Soup. Setsu makes the oyakodon with a ‘garlic bird’ (a fictional bird that tastes strongly of garlic) and a ‘ten yolk egg’. Sadly most of her ingredients couldn’t be found in any grocery store, so we just had to do the best we could with normal chicken, garlic, and single yolk eggs.
