This is a very simple and delicious recipe, adapted from "Cooking with Dog". Recommended by a friend. Cooking with Dog is a Youtube cooking show hosted by a mysterious Japanese chef and her dog Francis! I love her simple cooking and recipes!
Simple and delicious with well balanced flavour. Definitely going to cook this again and again!

I served my Katsudon with multigrains rice (Gokuku rice)
This premix multigrain is very convenient to use and is available in most Japanese mart. Add 1 packet into 2 cup of Japanese rice with additional 40 ml water to cook.
