Welcome to My Hero Academia Week! All week long, we'll be making and sharing recipes inspired by characters from one of my favorite anime, My Hero Academia (also known as Boku No Hero Academia in Japanese).
We're starting the week off with the main character himself, Izuku Midoriya aka Deku. The show has these info cards that they share for the characters with some fun facts about them, and according to Izuku's, his favorite food is a pork cutlet bowl.
I don't eat pork, so I'll be making mine with chicken - but feel free to do this with pork if you want to stay even more true to the show. We'll be serving it up with some Japanese curry and rice, which is always a plus ultra meal if you ask me. Pork cutlet bowls are typically served with fried egg, so if you wanted to stay closer to the original, you could whip that up alongside this, too. Just be sure to place it on top of the rice and under the meat.
Have a food from an anime that you want me to try to recreate? Let me know in the comments below! Plus, follow me on TikTok to see the behind the scenes of how this was made.
