Kansai-Style Sukiyaki Beef Bowl Onions Galore

Kansai-Style Sukiyaki Beef Bowl Onions Galore

The abundance of onions provides just the right amount of liquid for a delicious sauce. And the meat juice is so flavorful that there's no need for seasoning with a soup base.

Ingredients: 2-4 servings

Thinly sliced beef
about 200g
1 to 1 1/2
1 1/2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
Vegetable oil
as needed
as you like


1. In a pan, heat oil on medium then add the beef; breaking it up as you cook. When it's almost browned, add sugar, distributing it evenly.
2. Add sliced onion and fry. Add the soy sauce and sake. Cook covered on medium-low heat until the onions are translucent.
3. Reduce the liquid to your desired thickness, I like mine a little soupy. Leave uncovered until it's cooked to your liking.
4. Serve in a bowl topped with a soft boiled egg (optional). The picture shows just the yolk arranged on top.
5. If you'd like, garnish with a couple pieces of diagonally cut leeks.
