  1. Fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until slightly crispy. Remove to paper towels to drain and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the water and eggs. Gradually stir in the flour and salt until smooth. Add the cabbage and ginger; stir until evenly distributed.
  3. Heat a skillet over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Pour about 1/4 of the batter into the center of the skillet. Place 4 slices of cooked bacon in the center. Use a spatula to shape the pancake into a circle. Fry for about 5 minutes or until the edges are dry. Flip and cook on the other side until the center is stable and it is browned on both sides. Remove from the pan and drizzle with tonkatsu sauce to serve. Continue with remaining batter and bacon.

I made this according to the recipe, with bacon and the ginger. My husband ate it just fine, but I didn't like it at all. I found the sauce and bacon were too salty. Won't make again.

I used shrimp to make this as suggested by others and cut down on the pickled ginger b/c I don't like it much. My hubby and I had a hard time making these b/c we weren't sure what to expect. I...

Five stars for taste even though I'm terrible at the flipping part and I end up eating a mish mash of broken parts. I didn't have bacon so made a vegetarian style which was just as good. I use...

I would use dashi instead of water to add more favor to the base. water is a bit too bland. I wouldnt use BBQ sauce, use Okonomiyaki sauce instead. Other suggested filling: grated yam, chopped l...
