Okonomiyaki: Hiroshima-American style

 When my husband served a mission in Hiroshima Japan Mission, he went to a place where they served this delicious food. We noticed when we went to Japanese festivals that they served it but differently. All the ingredients were mixed into the batter and then cooked, Osaka style, instead of the layered version he learned in the south. He wanted to recreate the southern version with it's layers at home. So this is our version of Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki.

What you need:

Okonomiyaki flour (I found some at a Japanese import store or you can buy some here on Amazon)
Pork belly, thin sliced (But we used bacon, you can use thick cut, just don't use maple flavored, it's kind of weird.)
Shredded cabbage (I ran a few wedges through the food processor)
Yakisoba noodles (Also found at Japanese import store)
For condiments: Okonomiyaki sauce, and Kewpie mayonnaise also found at import store.

Then mix the flour with water until until the consistency of pancake batter.

 Shred cabbage
Soak noddles until softened.

Cut bacon or pork belly in half.

I also uploaded five Youtube videos to show construction:

Drizzle with Kewpie and okonomiyaki sauce. Enjoy!
