Okonomiyaki Recipies\Austin Japanese Restaurants

Google search for "okonomiyaki Austin"

  1. ...I don't know of any restaurants that serve Okonomiyaki in the Austin area. But it is very easy to make.

    Go to Asahi Imports (6105 Burnet Road) and ask for Okonomiyaki flour. The recipe is on the package. The store also has all of the other ingredients (except for meat, fish) and will cheerfully help you identify and locate them. Then go to Whole Foods downtown and ask for the pork and/or beef sliced "shabu shabu" sytle. Mix up the batter and cook it on whatever you use to make pancakes. thebodytx Jul 30, 2007 08:41AM

    ...As far as okonomiyaki is concerend, it's the SAUCE that makes or breaks it! I'd recommend Otafuku Sauce, but our family tradition is to mix tonkatsu sauce with ketchup and worcestershire sauce. And of course, you have to have kewpie mayonnaise! (American and Ajinomoto mayonnaise are too sweet for okonomiyaki). You also have to have all other little ingredients (and you have to have the right grill)--too much work if you're making it just for yourself and especially if you've never made one.

  2. ...For dinner we went to Okonomi-mura (Okonomiyaki village). Hiroshima is known for their okonomiyaki (Japanese pancake and literally, "grill/cook what you want"), and boy do they know how to do it right! Okonomimura is just a building with 4 floors of nothing but back to back okonomiyaki shops. It's kinda ridiculous to have so many of the same thing in one place, but that's what makes it fun!

    I'm pretty sure that I came to this shop...or one very close to it, when I was here last.

    This is what the okonomiyaki looks like when it's first getting started.

    And then it turns into this delicious goodness. And Hiroshima doesn't ruin it with mayo, woohoo!

    Note: Love there website glad I found it.

  3. Musashi no Sushidokoro
    3407 Greystone Drive
    Austin, Texas 78731
    North of intersection of Mopac and Farwest on the West access road
    (beneath "China Town")
    The best sushi in Austin, Texas.
  4. Okonomiyaki (Japanese Omelette)

    1/2 cup of
    rice or other flour
    1/3 cup of water
    1 large
    1 square of cotton (firm)
    tofu cubed
    or 1 boneless
    chicken breast
    a handful of various greens
    1/4 of a medium onion
    1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil

    shoyu soy sauce
    thinly sliced
    thinly torn shiso leaf or green

    What to do:
    Add seasonings to shoyu
    to taste. Start with just a pinch of each. Perhaps add some saké. Yay!
    In a bowl, mix flour, water, and egg. Chop all vegetables and meat. Sauté the tofu or the chicken pieces in 1 tablespoon of hot grapeseed oil. Then mix the vegetables and tofu into the mixing bowl batter. Reheat the pan and cook small amounts about the size of pancakes until golden brown on each side.

    Plate the okonomiyaki by divided into slices, drizzle sauce on top and serve.
  5. Easy, Basic Okonomiyaki Batter
    2 eggs
    2.5 Cups water
    2 Cups rice flour
    1 Cup shredded cabbage
    1/2 Tbsp dashi soup stock
    1/2 Cup yam flour

    {Dashi, Rice Flour and Yam Flour (preferably yamatoimo, if you can find it) are available at most Asian groceries.}

    In a bowl, beat the eggs lightly with a whisk or spoon.
    Whisk in the dashi, water, and yamatoimo. Gradually add the flour, whisking until smooth. Then add the cabbage.

    (you can remove the eggs and dashi to make it vegetarian-safe, but it doesn't taste as good, IMHO)

    Toppings (optional):
    Thinly sliced beef, pork, chicken, shrimp, scallops, etc.
    Ground beef works in a pinch too.

    Oil up a griddle, skillet or hot-plate. Pour on some batter in a roughly round shape. If you have toppings, add them now, then pour some more batter over it.
    Wait until it hardens, then flip it like a pancake.

    Easy, Basic Okonomiyaki Sauce:
    1 Cup mayonaisse
    1/4 Cup Mr. Yoshida's Original Sauce
    1 Tbsp Wasabi (paste, not powder!)

    Mix it all together until it's smooth.
    Alter amounts to taste, if you like.

    Some people add catsup and/or brown sugar.
    Use spicy Japanese mayo if you can find it.
    You can also use teriyaki sauce instead of Mr. Yoshida's.

    Spread the sauce on top of the okonomiyaki and serve it.
    I like to eat it with yakisoba, but that's preference.

    Keep in mind that this is not, by any stretch of the imagination, an authentic recipe, just an easy one.

  6. This is how to cook Hiroshima's okonomi-yaki using hot plate at home.

    1. Spread base(A mixture of flours, water, and etc.,) .
      Hot plate's temperature is medium position. When you spread base you make a circle quickly from core to out avoiding run through same place. Diameter is about 20cm.
    2. Put grained fish and tang on the base.
    3. Hot plate's temperature is high position(over 200$B!n(J).
      Put a full bowl of cabbage.
    4. Place fried flours on the cabbage.
      $B"((JIt is delicious to put teared fried dry squid.

    5. Put sliced stone leek.

    6. Put bean sprouts on the stone leek.

    7. Put sliced porks on the whole.
      Place three sliced porks avoiding overlapping each other.
    8. Pour base mixture on top.

    9. Lift carefully and turn okonomi-yaki bottoms up.

    10. Separate noodles. (Use salad oil for separating
      steamed noodles. Use water for separating boiled noodles.)
      Put contents such as vegetables into base.
    11. Fry noodles with yakisoba sauce beside okonomi-yaki.

    12. Make noodles roundly.
      During those process, vegetables are steamed.

    13. Put okonomi-yaki on spreaded noodles.

    14. Hot plate's temperature is medium position.
      Press okomoni-yaki lightly.
    15. Break an egg beside okonomi-yaki.
    16. Spread the egg same side of okonomi-yaki.
    17. Put okonomi-yaki on the egg.
    18. Turn it again, and face egg side up.
      It is easy to turn if you separate okonomi-yaki from the hot plate before you turn okonomi-yaki.
    19. Spread fully okonomi-yaki sauce on the egg surface.
    20. Put grained seaweed. It is done.
