My Family's Okonomiyaki. Great recipe for My Family's Go-to Recipe for Okonomiyaki. Ever since I first started making this, I have been refining the recipe. I used to make it the usual way with pork and egg or squid and egg, but the the okonomiyaki with shiso leaves I had once at a restaurant was so good I couldn't get it out of my mind. and I had to find out a way to recreate it at home!
My husband and I thought the Okonomiyaki was the best we have had since leaving Japan. The market had very fresh, whole Nagaimo so I still have a large piece leftover. I hope it will keep for awhile wrapped in newspaper in the refrigerator waiting for its next starring role. You can have My Family's Okonomiyaki using 5 ingredients and 5 steps.

Hi I wanted to share mine. I am a Japanese and I thought that I could help others to make more authentic one. my mom used to use corn kennel shredded cabbage shredded carrots Chikuwa(you can find at Asian store but this is optional) ham and bit cooked meat;beef or pork (not ground not chicken). Other people suggested to buy Okonomiyaki Flour but you do not need it. You can use just All Purpose flour.
My Family's Okonomiyaki step by step
- Mix all the ingredients together (add the egg when mixing the filling)..
- For the filling, you can use cabbage, frozen shrimp, ground pork, corn, cheese, green onion, etc..
- In a bowl, mix the cabbage, fillings, egg, and some of the batter. Fold in together..
- Use one egg per pancake..
- If you can't obtain thinly sliced pork, you could saute ground pork separately and add it to the filing (about 200~300g is enough for 4 pancakes)..
I was never a huge fan of okonomiyaki (savory Japanese pancake that has many variations) but I enjoyed eating it at home with my family- we would cook these pancakes on a portable skillet, in the middle of the dining table, and after eating one or two, finish the meal by cooking yaki-udon (stir fried udon noodles) with the ingredients that we also used for the okonomiyaki. My children loved okonomiyaki growing up – actually, they still love it just as much! Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き) is a Japanese street food which is very popular among Western visitors who often try it for the first time in Japan. Mix flour and water together in a bowl until smooth. Stir in cabbage, bacon, eggs, sausage, green onions, shrimp, cheese, and tenkasu.
