I made Oyakodon (chicken and egg on rice) in the Hot Cook. The best thing about the Hot Cook is that you can just leave it alone and don’t need to worry if it is cooked at the proper heat! Once you put the ingredients in the inner pot, you can just leave it alone. After the first finish chime, add the beaten egg and extend heat for 2 minutes. We enjoyed a delicious Oyakodon with half-boiled eggs!

This is my family’s original recipe.

You cannot go wrong with Hot Cook when cooking stewed dishes, and you can always enjoy delicious meals. Of course, I could make a tasty Oyakodon this time.

The preparation and cooking time is only a little over 15 minutes.

It’s so easy to make that I’m sure it will be on the dinner table many times in the future, along with our family’s most famous dish, the pork rice bowl.

The recipe is for two people, but if you want to make it for one person, just halve the number of ingredients and seasonings.

Hot Cook Recipe [Oyakodon] One Point Advice

  • If you don’t have mentsuyu, you can use 1 teaspoon of Japanese granulated dashi (for 2 people), but I recommend adding mentsuyu if possible.
  • Depending on the amount of beaten egg, if you feel that the egg is not quite done when you open the lid, you can stir the whole thing and the residual heat will make the egg half-boiled and just right.
