Gyudon (牛鍋)

With thinly sliced beef and sweet onions over a bowl of steaming rice, this Gyudon (牛丼), or “beef bowl” is a mouthwatering Japanese classic that comes together in minutes. The secret to tender flavorful beef is to gently simmer the meat in a broth made from dashi, white wine, and sake. The broth turns into a tasty sauce that percolates into the rice, flavoring each grain with loads of beefy goodness.
