Don is short for Donburi which is a kind of dish in Japan that a number of variants. Oyako literally means parent (oya) and child (ko). These refer of course to the chicken and eggs, but I always find it funny that they actually named this food that way. You can’t help but appreciate the little touch of gallows humor. It does make you feel a little creepy when you taste it and think “oh man, they DO taste good together...” Serious Eats actually has a big series of donburi recipes. I rarely reach for them, but they ARE super easy, maybe I should switch it up a little... If anyone has quick recipes they like, or tips that sped up their cooking, I’d love to hear them too! Speed is something I still struggle with often in the kitchen. Quote Cowardly Assassin Training Log | Challenges: Current, 8th, 7th, 6th, 5th, 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st Link to comment
