I’m making a YouTube video this week on Oyakodon (oya = parent, ko= child, don=rice bowl) or Chicken and Egg over rice. I made (and ate) five today. As I was doing it, I wondered how I could change it to make it “American” but still keep the concept: Boiling/Poaching meat with egg and serving it over rice. I was wondering how to American-ize the flavors and wondered if any of you had any idea, humorous or serious.
The dish is flavored with dashi, soy sauce, and mirin (and/or sugar and sake).
Off hand I was thinking Chicken and Bacon, dashi, mirpoix or
Chicken, bacon, beef broth, mirpoix.
Any thoughts on what flavor profile or ingredients can “American-ize” a dish? (It doesn’t have to just be this Oyakono, I’m curious what the American flavor profile means to you.)
