So this is the dish I also made on Saturday, it suits perfect to have with the dumplings (click here for the dumplings recipe). I really had an Asian food theme this time. I always love to try out new things. One of the fun things about cooking.
Gyudon is basically a dish of thinly sliced fatty beef, cooked in a slightly sweet mixture of mirin and soy sauce and served over rice. You can find all of the ingredients at the supermarket, I went to Haugkaup here in Iceland.
Neutral oil, such as vegetable or canola oil
2 medium onions, very thinly sliced
500g very thinly sliced beef (fatty beef chuck or ribeye)
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons mirin sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce as Kikkoman
2 dl beef or chicken stock (you can buy concentrated and mix with water)
1 spring onion, chopped as garnish
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds as garnish
Cooked jasmin rice
- Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet or wok pan over medium high heat, and cook the sliced onions for about 10 minutes, stirring often.
- Add the beef and sugar, and cook until the beef is slightly browned.
- Add the mirin, soy sauce, and stock.
- Bring to a simmer, and cook for about 10-15 minutes to reduce the stock into a thin sauce. Taste for seasoning, and add a little more soy sauce if needed.
- Meanwhile, heat another couple tablespoons of oil in a cast iron or non-stick skillet. Cook the eggs sunny-side up. The yolks should still be runny!
- When the beef is done simmering, divide the rice among 4 bowls, and top with the beef and an egg for each bowl. Garnish with chopped scallion and toasted sesame seeds, if using.
So simple and so good! :)
