Yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) with Furikake

Yakiniku with Furikake is a delicious Japanese dish that combines the flavors of grilled meat, typically beef or pork, with furikake seasoning. Yakiniku refers to the style of grilling bite-sized pieces of meat, while furikake is a Japanese seasoning typically made from a mixture of dried seaweed, sesame seeds, salt, sugar, and other ingredients. Here's a simple recipe to make Yakiniku with Furikake:


  • 1 pound (450 grams) thinly sliced beef or pork
  • Yakiniku sauce (available in Asian grocery stores or you can make your own)
  • Furikake seasoning
  • Cooking oil


  1. Preheat your grill or a grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. If using beef or pork, slice it into thin pieces, about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Brush some cooking oil onto the grill or grill pan to prevent sticking.
  4. Once the grill is hot, place the meat slices on it and cook for about 1-2 minutes on each side, or until they are cooked to your desired level of doneness.
  5. While grilling, brush the yakiniku sauce onto the meat slices, ensuring they are evenly coated. You can use a basting brush or simply drizzle the sauce over the meat.
  6. Once the meat is cooked and nicely glazed with the sauce, remove it from the grill and transfer it to a serving plate.
  7. Sprinkle furikake seasoning generously over the grilled meat. You can choose a furikake blend that suits your taste preferences.
  8. Serve the yakiniku with furikake immediately while it's still hot. It can be enjoyed as a standalone dish or with steamed rice and some side dishes like pickles or salad.

Enjoy your Yakiniku with Furikake!
