Gyudon (Beef Bowl)

Here is another simple one-bowl meal that is quick and easy to prepare. Thinly sliced beef with onions are simmered in a sweet and salty soy-based sauce and poured over a bowl of freshly cooked rice, served with a side of steamed vegetables. A kid-friendly recipe that takes the pain out of feeding fussy little eaters!

Gyudon (Beef Bowl) Recipe

200g beef scotch fillet, thinly sliced
1 small onion, sliced
1/2 stalk scallion, chopped
2 bowls cooked short-grained (calrose) rice
Steamed vegetables, to serve

1/2 tsp instant dashi granules
2/3 cup water
1 shiitake mushroom
1 tsp grated ginger
1/4 cup Kikkoman soy sauce
1 tbsp mirin
1 1/2 tbsp sugar (or to taste)


Place sauce ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Heat up a little oil in a pan and fry the onions, followed by the beef. Then, add scallions and the sauce, and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Dish out and pour over each of the 2 bowls of rice and serve with steamed vegetables.
