Gyudon Recipe

Gyudon is beef bowl if I translate the word. This casual quick meal with lots of beef over lots of rice is very popular in Japan, particularly among hungry young men. There are even fast food restaurant chains in Japan to serve beef bowls in low price.

Half the battle to cook gyudon in the United States is to get the thin sliced beef. Even thin sliced beef at regular grocery stores are too thick for this purpose. I usually get a couple of  frozen thinly sliced beef packages at Chinese or Korean grocery stores, and keep them in my freezer.

Cooking itself is pretty quick and easy. Just cook sliced onion and beef in soy sauce base soup. All finish in just 20 minutes.

Tried this one but the result was still a bit salty. Should I just keep adding sugar to the noodle soup base? (I bought a commercial one, the 本つゆ from Kikkoman).

Depending on the maker, the taste is little different. If you think the soup is too salty, dilute the soup base with some water. Then you still think the soup lacks sweetness, add sugar.
