Includes Three Delicious Recipes
The word "teriyaki" is a combination of two words - "teri" / "tare" refers to the shine from the sugar glaze and "yaki" refers to the cooking method of grilling or broiling. Teriyaki is believed to have originated around the 17th century in Japan.
Katsu is an abbreviation of "katsuretu" which comes from the English word “cutlet”. Katsu was introduced as a Japanese-western meal in 1899 in Ginza, Tokyo. It is either served as a single dish or in combination with curry and generally with shredded cabbage. It is traditionallyl prepared with pork cutlet but chicken is also a great alternative.
Okonomiyaki ("okonomi" - as you like it, "yaki" - grill) is a savory Japanese pancake, known in the USA as Japanese pizza. It is traditionally made with shredded cabbage and various meats, and is topped with condiments like scallions, red pickled ginger (kizami beni shoga) and green seaweed powder (aonori). Okonomiyaki is mainly associated with the Kansai or Hiroshima areas of Japan.
