Instructions
  1. Let’s make the broth. Combine the soy sauce, mirin, dashi stock and sugar. Stir to mix and dissolve the sugar.
  2. Add the chicken pieces to the broth. The relatively thin slices of meat will cook easily and absorb the seasoning well.
  3. Lightly beat the eggs. Avoid overmixing to create a soft and silky texture.
  4. Separate every two layers of the onion. Then, cut them into 1cm slices. You can also use the white part of a long green onion instead.
  5. Add the onion to the chicken. Heat the pan on medium heat. And cover with a lid.
  6. When the meat begins to turn white, flip it over. If you want to give the dish a lighter flavor, use chicken breast or tenderloin instead of the thigh.
  7. When the chicken is almost cooked, add the mitsuba parsley. Then, distribute the beaten egg. By the way, a special pan called oyako nabe is often used to make oyakodon but you can substitute a small pan.
  8. Cover again. Cook the egg at least halfway through and then adjust the consistency to your taste. If you’re unsure about the quality of your eggs, please find pasteurized eggs or cook the egg completely.
  9. Place the ingredients onto a bowl of hot steamed rice. Make a shallow hole in the center. And place the fresh egg yolk into it.
Recipe Notes
  • We recommend cooking the rice with slightly less water to enjoy the oyakodon since it will absorb the remaining broth.
  • You can also top with sansho pepper or shredded nori seaweed to taste.

Instructions
  1. Let's parboil the chicken. Slice the chicken thighs into bite-size pieces cutting at an angle. Make sure that each piece has about the same thickness. Place the chicken into a pot of boiling water.
  2. Lightly cook the chicken until the surface turns white. Remove and place it onto a tray. This will help to remove any unwanted taste and smell, making the chicken more delicious.
  3. Let's make the sukiyaki sauce also known as warishita. In a pot, combine the soy sauce, sugar, sake and water. Add the dashi kombu seaweed. If the kombu is not available, simply leave it out. Turn on the burner. Stir to mix. When the sugar dissolves, remove the pot. Let it sit to cool and then remove the kombu seaweed.
  4. Let's prepare the ingredients. Slice the long green onion using diagonal cuts. As for the shungiku, use the soft upper half of the stalk and the bottom part of the leaves.
  5. Here are the rest of the ingredients, enoki and shimeji mushrooms, grilled firm tofu and lightly parboiled shirataki noodles cut into shorter lengths.
  6. Let's make the Torisuki. Pour the sukiyaki sauce into a shallow pot. Turn on the burner and bring it to a boil.
  7. Add the shirataki noodles, grilled firm tofu cut into 1.5cm (0.6") slices and long green onion. Add the enoki mushrooms and shimeji mushrooms. Place the chicken into the pot.
  8. Flip the ingredients over and allow them to absorb the broth. The chicken easily becomes tough so avoid overcooking it.
  9. When the chicken is cooked, add the shungiku leaves. Lightly cook the shungiku in the broth and now the Torisuki is ready.
  10. Dip the ingredients into the egg and enjoy the delectable Torisuki.
Recipe Notes
  • Using a raw egg is an essential part of enjoying sukiyaki here in Japan. When you are not sure if your raw eggs can be eaten raw, consider using pasteurized eggs.
  • You may also add udon noodles to the remaining broth and enjoy the last drop of delicious sauce.
