Still on that Japanese holiday hangover, there was this one dish that I like so much during my visit there. Care to guess? Nope, it’s not sushi.
It’s Gyudon. ‘Gyu’ means Beef, ‘Don’ means a bowl, so Gyudon literally means ‘Beef Bowl’. Pretty sure that’s the most interesting bowl out there is!
For 1 servings, you will need;
· 200 Grams of thinly sliced beef. I use Topside for this
· 1 packet of Dashinomoto (instant dashi stock). You can substitute this with chicken stock, but flavors will be different
· 1 Onion
· 6 tbsp of Soy Sauce
· 2 tbsp of Mirin. This can be substituted with combination of Vinegar and Sugar. For every 1 tbsp of Mirin, combine 1 tbsp of vinegar and 1/2 tsp of granulated sugar.
· 3 tbsp of Sugar. Brown sugar preferred
· 300 ml of Hot Water
