Katsudon is a traditional Japanese dish that is popular with the younger generation of foodies given its simplicity, inexpensiveness, and depth of umami. The word “Katsudon” is derived from 2 words: Tonkatsu (which means pork cutlet) and Donburi (which means large bowl). Katsudon is typically a deep fried pork cutlet cooked in a sweet and savory soy-based sauce combined with a scrambled egg, and served over a bowl of steamed white rice. It’s very simple to make, but also extremely satisfying to consume. 
This version adds another level of umami by including toasted shiitake mushrooms and a spicy Japanese mayonnaise that works extremely well with the dish.
