Gyudon” : Beef bowl
“Gyudon” has now become, in a sense, a national food. Fast food restaurant chains specialized in this dish are found throughout Japan, and people enjoy them in their everyday life.
“Gyudon” is commonly a bowl of rice topped with beef and onion cooked together in a mild sweet soy-sauced-based special sauce. It is usually served together with “Beni Shoga”, pickled ginger, as seen in the picture
You could add some “Shichimi” (ground chili pepper) for some accent in taste. Also, some try topping with a raw egg.
Please get hooked on the well-balanced taste of beef, onion and the special sauce!
