Ochazuke with Salmon Flakes

Bookmark and Share
Ochazuke is a dish in which hot tea is poured over cooked white rice topped with a few simple ingredients. It is a deceptively simple yet extremely tasty dish beloved by all Japanese. Ochazuke can be enjoyed as a light meal or snack at any time of day, and it is extremely easy to prepare. All you need to do is put some simple ingredients on a bowl of hot white rice and pour a cup of tea over it.

Of course, the flavor of the dish will improve if you are particular about the rice, the type of tea, and the topping. Favorite Japanese toppings are pickled plums (umeboshi), dried sea laver (nori), grilled salmon, soy-simmered fish and seaweed, tempura, broiled eel, and so on. Alternatives from Western cuisine are grilled chicken, grilled salmon, pickled cucumber, smoked salmon, and oysters marinated in oil.

Various seasonings can be added for flavor, such as sesame seeds, Japanese horseradish (wasabi), or freshly grated ginger. Ochazuke is normally served in a bowl large enough to hold the rice and a generous amount of tea. Individual salad bowls, large breakfast cups, or cereal bowls are good substitutes.

Tonkatsu (deep-fried pork cutlet)

Bookmark and Share
Tonkatsu, deep-fried breaded pork cutlet, is in its own way just as famous as tempura; and like tempura it was imported from the West. This dish is derived from the European breaded cutlet, but whereas the Western version is fried in a scant amount of oil, this one is deep-fried.
Tonkatsu is one of the most popular meat dishes in Japan. A "set" meal consisting of a deep-fried breaded pork cutlet on a bed of cabbage, a bowl of rice, one of soup, and a side dish of pickles costs about Y800-Y1,000.

In comparison with tempura, this dish might impress you as being heavy, almost Germanic. But the fact remains that this kawari-age dish is very much a daily food and is inexpensive as well as filling. Done well, with pork loin or tenderloin, it can be very good indeed.
Tonkatsu is accompanied by a thick sauce, based on Worcestershire sauce, which is available in bottles, or you can use the dipping sauces recommended below. It is commonly laid against shredded raw cabbage, which acts as a salad.
