Omurice Recipe With Delicious Demi-Glace Sauce
You definitely should try this amazing Japanese dish at home! Omurice, basically fried rice wrapped in an omelet, is one of Japan's favorite and is served at many restaurants. You can easily make it with simple ingredients at home.
What is Omurice
The basic omurice consists of simple ingredients: eggs, chicken, vegetables, rice, ketchup, and a sauce. The rice is often wrapped with eggs or topped with a soft-cooked omelet which later is sliced in the middle to open (called "tampopo omurice"). When people make omurice at home, the omelette is usually simply placed over the rice because it is much easier.
