Bring Up the Child

Oyakudon means mother and child rice.This is a popular Japanese donburi. Donburi is fast to prepare and I  usually cook donburi when the family eats at different time. All I have to do is prepare ahead; meat seasoned, rice cooked and onions chopped, and a hot meal will be ready to eat in 5 minutes.
Donburi  is a general term for "bowl" and is also popularly refers to as a bowl of cooked rice with some other food served on top of it.  It can be Gyudon,( beef and onion) Tendon(tempura shrimp),Tamagodon(scrambled egg),Katsudon(deep fried pork cutlets,Tekkadon(raw tuna) and many more. I like to add Umami togarashi, chili pepper powder on my rice. This recipe serves two.
