I got this recipe from a Japanes friend of mine. "OISHI DE'S NEH" Katsudon is a deep fried pork cutlet coated in pillow-soft, lightly scrambled eggs served over rice and seasoned with a thin dashi-soy sauce-mirin-sugar sauce. Even though I didn't grow up eating this dish, it just exudes comfort. Pork. Egg. Rice. A simple combination of tasty stuff.
