Katsudon is one of the most famous Japanese dishes.
It's a rice bowl topped with Deep fried pork loin.
The name Katsu-don came from Tonkatsu (pork cutlet)
and Donburi (rice bowl).
It has become a tradition that the Japanese students
would have Katsu-don before taking exams.
As the word Katsu has the same sound as
the Japanese's word meaning "To win".
There are variation of the sauces used in Katsu-don.
However in this Katsu-don recipe we will use the soy sauce
base or sh¨yu-dare katsudon as it's yummy and easy.
