"Tamago egg is classic Japanese folded omelet sometimes called tamagoyaki. The omelet is sweet, has a light texture, and works well when served over sushi rice and with soy and wasabi sauce for dipping. Tamago is the Japanese word for egg. Mirin is sweet rice wine and dashi is traditional Japanese soup stock (make from kelp or shiitake). These ingredients are now carried in most larger grocery stores or at Asian markets."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

prepared dashi stock
mirin (Japanese sweet wine)
vegetable oil, or more as needed
Good stuff. I personally feel that wrapping the slices with nori (seaweed used for onigiri) makes it taste better.
Good recipe. Had to substitute a milder fish sauce for the dashi stock, because I was out. oh no! but the recipe tasted good otherwise.
Great alternative for my kids lunches! they loved it and now request them weekly!
Well I don't have dashi but I made the dish with everything but that and it turned out fabulous. It's super easy and delicious. Also I used a large round non stick pan it worked perfectly. No need to hunt down a tamago pan.
Smells amazing while you're cooking and it tastes even better. Although I substituted dashi stock and sweet wine with seasoned rice vinegar. Still worked out great although the color of my version is quite as yellow. Not sure if that is due to cooking it too hot or from my cast iron skillet.
Very tasty! I substituted chicken stock with a little fish sauce for the dashi, and served it on top of sushi rice patties with a strip of nori around each piece. This one is going into my recipe notebook.
This was lovely, and so easy to do! I'll definitely be making it again
You dont need to use dashi. I just used the mirin and i like my tamago sweeter so i made it 2 tables spoons. Also its nice served cold. You can keep it wrapped in cling wrap in the ref so it stays moist. Once your ready to serve it, thats the only time you slice it
