Recipe: Okonomiyaki

Basically okonomiyaki are like a savory Japanese pancake that is shoved with whatever you like (the word okonomiyaki is literally “what you want”). This is a pretty basic one with just some dried tuna flakes and cabbage but you can pretty much put in anything you want from blue cheese to fish eggs to ground bison – whatever you have laying around. You can pick up the Japanese ingredients in a specialty Asian store or on Amazon.
