Gyudon is a staple dish for Japanese people and the great thing is it is one pot meal. “Gyu” means beef
and “don” means donburi (bowl) i.e serving steamed rice in a bowl with beef on top but I am going to
serve this in a lunch box! For this recipe I used konnyaku noodle (optional) called “Shirataki” which is
made from Konnyaku potato (high in mineral and very low in calories) but if you can’t find it, you can
make this dish without it.
1. In a medium size pot, add brown onion, ginger, soy sauce, cooking sake, mirin, sugar, dashi and water and
bring to boil.
2. Reduce heat to medium-high and add beef.
3. Remove all the scum and add konnyaku noodle (shirataki) and cook for 20 minutes.
4. Put steamed rice in a lunch box first and place this braised beef on top of the rice once it’s cooled down.
Sprinkle sesame seeds and garnish with broccoli and cherry tomato.
