Beef Rice Bowl with Cheese & Poached Egg

My husband loves 'Gyu-don' (stewed beef and rice bowl). I added melting cheese and poached egg on top!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Beef round offcuts (thinly sliced)
200 g
Hot cooked rice
2 portions for 2 bowls
Easy melting cheese
2 slices
★Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
★ Sugar
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
Dashi stock granules
1 heaped teaspoon
Shredded nori seaweed
as desired
Salt and pepper
to taste


1. Prepare the poached eggs. Bring the water in a small saucepan to a boil. Turn off the heat and place the eggs in the pan. After 15 minutes, cool the eggs in running water and chill in the fridge.
2. Cut the beef into bite sizes. Slice the onion into thin wedges. Slice the cheese thinly.
3. Heat oil in a frying pan (or in a saucepan) and fry the onion and beef. After the beef has changed color, add some sake (not listed).
4. After evaporating the alcohol content of sake, add 200 ml of hot water and the dashi stock powder. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Skim off the scum.
5. Add the ★ ingredients and simmer for about 5 minutes.
6. Place the hot cooked rice in a bowl and transfer the stewed beef on top. Garnish with cheese, poached egg and nori seaweed.
