This is Gyudon, which is a Japanese beef bowl recipe here. The word Donburi means bowl in Japanese.
This is a bowl of rice topped with of delicious sweet flavored beef. When you go
to Japan, Yoshinoya is famous for Gyudon chain restaurants and it is like a fast food restaurant in America. It is easy to make it so you should try Japanese Gyudon the beef bowl.
Gyudon (牛丼?), (beef bowl), is a Japanese dish consisting of a bowl of rice topped with beef and onion simmered in a mildly sweet sauce flavored with dashi (fish and seaweed stock), soy sauce and mirin (sweet rice wine). It also often includes shirataki noodles, and is sometimes topped with a raw egg. A very popular food in Japan, it is commonly served with beni shōga (pickled ginger), shichimi (ground chili pepper), and a side dish of miso soup. Gyū means “cow” or “beef”, and don is short for donburi, the Japanese word for “bowl”. You can read more at Wikipedia Gyudon page.
2 cups Rice cooked
14oz beef thinly sliced
1 small onion
1tsp Grind Ginger
5tbs Soy sauce
2 Cut beef into 2 inch pieces.
3 Cut onion in half lengthwise and slice thinly.
4 Place all Gyudon sauce ingredients in a skillet.

You can find Yoshinoya the Gyudon chain restaurant in U.S. This is the page. You may find this chain Gyudon restaurant near your home. If so you can try their food. I am not sure Gyudon taste is same as Japanese Yoshinoya.
I made this recipe another day. It was very good! Tasty! My husband ate it without any problems. He doesn’t usually like to try anything new. Thanks for the recipe!

Great recipe, it’s almost like being back in Japan. My kids (23 & 14) kept saying they wish they could get a beef bowl, so I found your recipe. Thank you so much. My other favorite was the Curry Chicken Cutlet w/spiced ginger and organge spicey peper that was in the shakers. Do you have a recipe for that? Thanks again for all you do.
Thank you James. I guess you had lived in Japan before. The questions you asked, Curry Chicken recipe is https://www.japanesecookinglovers.com/506/japanese-chicken-curry-rice-recipe/ on this blog. Cutlet is https://www.japanesecookinglovers.com/2629/japanese-pork-loin-recipe-tonkatsukatsu/ Pork ginger is https://www.japanesecookinglovers.com/674/pork-and-ginger-teriyaki-shoga-yaki-sauce-recipe/ I am not really sure about Orange spicey peper. Check those out!
what is otoshi buta mentioned in the recipe?
in james’ post above about orange spicy pepper in shakers, is he maybe talking about shichimi togarashi?
Tom, thanks again. I thought I did write Otoshibuta somewhere in my blog. I should make a new page for Otoshibuta. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otoshi_buta Read this and you may understand what is the reason I am using it. Also yes, it maybe Jame’s talking about Shichimi! Thanks for the tip. You may be right.

Good recipe. To my taste I would change the order in which the onion and beef are cooked, since overcooking the beef would make it tough.
Sonny man, thanks. You can do whatever you want! ＾＾b
