2013.01.18: Springy onion okonomiyaki pizza

Got my copy of Sakamoto’s cookbook today, and the picture of this looked really good so I might try making it (probably without mochi because I’m too lazy to go buy some). Pro-tip: if you’ve never cooked okonomiyaki before, cook it like you would a pancake.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together miso with mirin and sake
  4. To a pan, add sesame oil, minced ginger, and the minced green parts of the leek
  5. When that's mixed together and cooking well, add ground meat
  6. When the meat changes colour, add the sauce from before
  7. When the sauce is mostly cooked off, the meat is done

  13. In the pan from before, lay down a piece of parchment paper and add your cheese to that (please use real cheese don't use pizza cheese. Eating pizza cheese is punishment for stealing in some countries) and when it's all melty and sticking together well, check the parchment paper to see if it's fried on the bottom
