Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

I was “exploring” when I came across this recipe at http://www.japan-guide.com/r/e1.html. Knowing the wide-ranging tastes we Eggers share I want to pass it along. Haven’t made it yet, but I plan to. (Measurements have been converted from metric to US.) [p]Okonomiyaki is a mixture between pancake and pizza. "Okonomi" means "as you like". This refers to the ingredients. [p]Ingredients:
Dough
- 12 ounces flour
- 1 cup water
- 2 eggs
- Cabbage, 4 leaves with stem removed, cut into thin (about 3/16 inch) strips[p]
Rather than list all the possible fillings from the original recipe, I’ll just say they range from meat, seafood and poultry to mushrooms, vegetables and even seaweed.[p]Sauces
Brown okonomiyaki sauce*
Mayonnaise [p]* May not be available in Western supermarkets; but you should be able to find it in Japanese grocery stores that exist in most large European and American cities. [p]Preparation:
- Mix the water, flour, eggs and the cabbage strips together.
- You may now add more ingredients to the dough: e.g. seafood, cut in little pieces, ground meat, cut mushrooms, etc.
- Fry the dough like a pancake in a small frying pan. (Or on a griddle or pizza stone?)
- Before turning the okonomiyaki over, and while the dough is still quite soft, you may put other ingredients on top of the dough.
- Turn the okonomiyaki.
- When fried well, serve the okonomiyaki with mayonnaise and okonomiyaki sauce. [p]Ken
