Home Rice

Rated as 3.86 out of 5 Stars

"A surprising mix of flavors, this dish can be served as a breakfast or brunch. Originally received from my Japanese mother, I simplified both the recipe and the name. I believe the original name was 'Om Rice' but my family just calls it 'Home Rice'!"

  1. Combine the rice and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender.
  2. Melt one tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add carrots and onion. Cook, stirring frequently until onions are tender and lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the cooked rice, and stir to blend well. Mix in the remaining butter. Reduce heat to medium-low, and stir in ketchup. Simmer for about 5 minutes to blend flavors, then remove from heat.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Pour half of the egg mixture into the skillet. Cook until firm, turning over once halfway through. Remove from the skillet and cut in half. Repeat with the remaining eggs.
  4. For each serving, place a scoop of rice onto a plate, and form into a flattened log shape. Top with one of the egg halves. Ketchup, salt and pepper may be added on top of the eggs at the table.

I didn't expect to like this but I did!! You have to like ketchup to enjoy this recipe because it is the main flavor. I can't wait for my oldest son to try this because he loves Japanese cooking...

A little too much ketchup, even for my "must have ketchup with everything" kids. If I make it again, I will use half the amount of ketchup.

I wasn't expecting to find an omuraisu recipe here. I've never been to Japan, but I decided to try my hand at making this after observing this dish several times in anime and an webisode of coo...

The recipe is perfect! My family loved the recipe the flavor was outstanding!

It only has two stars because of the amount of ketchup used. If you look up other omurice recipes, they don't use that much ketchup, just enough for some color in the rice and with that "zigzag"...
