Easy to Remember, Delicious Yoshinoya-Style Beef Rice Bowl

You need 2 tablespoons each of all the seasoning ingredients so it's super-easy to remember! I'm quite proud of this recipe. My husband wouldn't stop raving about how delicious it was when I made it for him!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Thinly sliced beef (or coarsely chopped)
300 to 500 g
1 (140 g)
* Dashi stock
300 ml
* Sugar
2 tablespoons
* Mirin
2 tablespoons
* Wine (red or white) or sake
2 tablespoons
* Usukuchi soy sauce
2 tablespoons
*Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
* Grated ginger (or pre-grated ginger from a tube)
about 5 cm or 1 teaspoon


1. Cut the onion in half and then into 5 mm wide slices. If the slices of beef are on the larger side, cut the onion into slightly larger slices as well to match.
2. Add the * ingredients to a pan, and bring to a boil.
3. Add the onion and simmer for 1-2 minutes.
4. Add the beef.
5. When it comes to a boil again, skim off the scum, put a lid on and simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes, and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

My husband eats this up eagerly every time and tells me it's just like the beef rice bowl they serve at Yoshinoya. (Personally, I don't really know why he says Yoshinoya -- I can't tell the difference between the beef bowls they serve in the Yoshinoya vs. Sukiya chains.)
