Yummy, yummy gyudon. *sigh*
Gyudon is a very simple dish to make (I’ve made it a few times myself). Translated as “beef bowl,” it is exactly what it sounds like: a bowl of beef. With onions. And green onions. And rice under the beef. The beef and onions are cooked in a mixture of soy sauce, rice vinegar, cooking sake, and dashi (a sort of fish broth) before being served over the rice.
The pictures below are some gyudon that my fiance and I got from Sukiya, a fast-food restaurant specializing in gyudon, while he was visiting. The one on the left is a regular gyudon, and the one on the right is a cheese gyudon. They also have a gyudon with an excessive amount of green onions on top and a kimchi gyudon, along with many others.
