- Pork schnitzel (comes in smaller pieces than beef schnitzel, you do not want a strip of fat on the edge)
- Japanese panko crumbs (readily available in the Asian section at supermarkets, taste so much better than plain breadcrumbs)
- Mirin (again, look in the Asian section) (1/4 cup)
- Soy sauce (1/2cup)
- Brown sugar (1tsp)
- Eggs (one or two, whisked)
- Leeks (the top green bit, finely sliced)
- Onion (finely sliced)
- Spring onions (finely sliced)
- Japanese rice (otherwise known as sushi rice)
Put cooked rice in a bowl. Cut the schnitzel into strips and place on top. Carefully scoop over a section of the egg and onions. Spoon over a tiny bit of the cooking liquid.
We often add extra veges to this dish, my husband likes mushrooms with it. I've added brocolli.
If you have leftovers I make 'rice bears' which are kind of like rice balls/ kid's sushi. I have a wicked cute Japanese mould for this purpose. Put a tiny drop of mirin or rice vinegar on a small amount of leftover rice. Make the first half of the sushi ball with a space in the middle for some of the pork, egg and onion. Cover with rice and form a ball (or make proper sushi if you like).
