Beef bowl (Gyu-don) with Furikake

A beef bowl with furikake is a delicious and popular Japanese dish known as gyudon. It typically consists of thinly sliced beef cooked with onions in a flavorful sauce, served over a bed of steamed rice and garnished with furikake. Furikake is a Japanese seasoning blend that typically includes dried seaweed, sesame seeds, bonito flakes, and other ingredients.

To make a beef bowl with furikake, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced beef (such as ribeye or sirloin)
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 2 tablespoons sake (Japanese rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Cooked rice
  • Furikake (Japanese seasoning)

Here's a basic recipe to guide you through the process:

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  2. Add the sliced onions and cook until they become translucent and slightly caramelized.
  3. Add the thinly sliced beef to the pan and cook until it is no longer pink.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, mirin, sake, and sugar until the sugar is dissolved.
  5. Pour the sauce mixture over the beef and onions in the pan. Stir well to coat everything evenly.
  6. Continue cooking for a few minutes until the sauce thickens slightly and coats the beef.
  7. Remove the pan from heat.

To serve:

  1. Place a portion of cooked rice in a bowl.
  2. Spoon the beef and onion mixture over the rice.
  3. Sprinkle furikake generously over the top.
