Japanese Omurice Recipe


When I was in Japan, one of my favourite dishes was omurice.  There was a lovely omurice restaurant my friends and I used to frequent in Fukuyama. It's been eleven years since my teaching days in Japan, and every now and then I still get the craving for omurice.

オムライス, Omu-raisu is the English contraction for omelette and rice. The dish mainly consists of fried rice with whatever other ingredients you wish, wrapped in a thin sheet of fried egg/omelette. Many restaurants serve the dish with a sauce (a white sauce, tomato based sauce or ketchup, for example).

We made a simple omurice for tonight's supper.
Ingredients:
* 3 cups cooked Japanese rice
* 8 Eggs (Because of the holiday long weekend, our local grocery store didn't have any eggs left. I picked up some liquid egg whites/Egg Beaters to substitute)
* 1 onion, diced
* green and red pepper, diced
* ham, cubed
* oil for frying

In a heated pan, add oil, sautee onions, veggies, and ham. Cook until soft. Add rice. Stir-fry ingredients to make fried rice.  Set aside fried rice.

In a heated skillet, pour a little bit of the beaten eggs and make a thin omelette. Once omelette is done, remove from skillet and place on plate. Add some fried rice on top of omelette and fold in half (like a half moon).

Add ketchup or whatever sauce you like on top. Enjoy!






FYI: This dish is a hit with our toddler. She devoured it in no time! Then again, there isn't much our toddler won't eat! She's an eating machine!
