Story

Savory pancakes, anyone? This week, we’re making Japanese okonomiyaki. With the delicate texture of a crêpe and the golden crust of an omelet, our repeat-hit version is stuffed with Chinese broccoli, edamame, and scallion, then seared until crispy-edged. Sesame-laced carrot-cabbage slaw is piled on top for a refreshing crunch, and a drizzle of Sriracha mayo provides creamy, spicy goodness.
