A simple weeknight dinner full of Japanese flavor. To slice beef thinly, wrap and place in freezer for 30 minutes before cutting.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a 4-quart pan, bring 3 cups water to a boil. Add rice and salt. Cover and reduce heat to simmer, then cook until almost tender, 15 minutes. Turn off heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork.

Step 2

In a small pan, bring soy sauce, sugar, sake, and 3/4 cup water to a boil. Remove from heat and reserve.

Step 3

In a 10-inch frying pan over high heat, cook onion in oil until it begins to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Add beef and continue stirring for 2 minutes, then add 1/2 cup of soy-sake sauce and stir until beef is cooked, 2 minutes longer.

Step 4

Divide rice among 4 bowls. Top with beef, remaining sauce, and cilantro. Serve with ginger, if desired.

Step 5

not gyu-don. If you add dashi broth some soy sauce and a pinch of sugar you would have beef bowl.

This meal was fantastic!!! Instead of using the cilantro and pickled ginger as garnishment, I marinated the beef with cilantro, fresh ginger and a splash of sake for about an hour. Loaded with lots of flavor, whole family loved it.
