FTF: Easy Beef Gyudon


It all started with Yoshinoya's bowl of Beef Gyudon... It's really our favorite, especially when served with red ginger. One evening, my husband asked me if I know how to cook Gyudon. It's sort of a request too. I don't really know how, but for me, as long as I have the ingredients everything will follow. So I went online to search for the common Beef Gyudon recipe. It was a fast find with the right ppc management. The traditional Gyudon recipe is compose of real Japanese ingredients such us: sake or Japanese rice wine and mirin.
Gyudon or simply beef bowl is a dish of beef and onion served over a bowl of rice, often topped with raw egg. Gyū means beef, and don  for donburi, which is the Japanese word for bowl.
I found a video (which was great), my husband was dictating the procedure to me, while I prepare the ingredients.
Please take note:
  • we substituted a mix of 1/4 cup white wine, 1/4 cup soy sauce and a teaspoon of sugar in replacement for sake and mirin.
  • 1 tsp. of fresh minced ginger instead of powdered ginger


Even with the substituting made with some of the ingredients, our bowl of Beef Gyudon tasted exactly like the traditional Gyudon bowl. Thanks to this Easy one-pot Gyudon (beef bowl) video. It would have been perfect though if we have some pickled red ginger in stock. Which reminded me to visit a Japanese store as soon as possible.
