You can use chicken breast instead!

2. Dredge the pork with flour, dip into beaten egg and then coat the surface with panko/breadcrumbs.

3. Let it sit for a few minutes to allow panko to stick well.

4. Preparing Don Sauce: Combine Don sauce into a pot, add sliced onion.
Simmer it for about 3 minutes to soften onion and extract its sweetness.

Add some more water if it gets too thick while simmering.

5. Have about 1.5cm depth of oil heated in a pan. Check the temperature by adding pinch of panko. See if the bubbles come out and slowly turning into gold.
Gently place the panko coated pork. Deep fry until both sides get golden.

To avoid overcooking so it stays succulent, the pork doesn’t need to be thoroughly cooked at this point. Let it cook through when it’s in the Don sauce with egg.

6. Add about half amount of the don sauce into a small pan.

7. Cut the fried pork into strips.

8. Gently place the pork into the pan. Pour about one beaten egg over the pork.

9. Cover the pan and let the egg set.

The first beaten egg can be cooked until firm so that second egg layer can stay on the sauce surface.

10. Drizzle one more egg on surface and this time you can cook until the way you like!
Lastly, transfer over the steamed rice. Decorate with chopped green onion and sprinkle some nanami powder if you like.
Repeat the same process with another pork.

If you are serving a big family, you can use a big pan and cook several pieces at the same time. Serve the pan on a dining table directly, and so everybody can dig in!
