About This Dish:
Beef bowl (Gyu-don) is a very popular dish in Japan. Usually served in fast food chains such as "Yoshinoya" and "Sukiya", gyu-dons are affordable, filling and delicious. It is also a popular dish served at home. The last time I was back home in Japan, my boyfriend and I grabbed a bowl at Yoshinoya for only 260 yen (that's around $3.00). At these chains, you can pick the size of bowl, normal to extra large. You can even add toppings like egg, natto, kimchi and so on. How fun! So how about trying to make your own at home? For those of you who are unfamiliar with the dish, it's savoury but slightly sweet because of the sugar and mirin which goes into it.
This recipe is easy, quick and tastes absolutely amazing. It made me feel like I was home. Unfortunately I couldn't find thin sliced beef in my nearby Asian market, so I ended up having to use Shaws' shaved beef steak; it still worked. I highly recommend using thin sliced beef sold in your nearby Asian supermarket, if you can!
P.S. As you can see on the photo, I added avocado as a topping and it went very well together.
