Cookbook:Gyudon (Japanese Beef and Rice Bowl)
|Gyudon (Japanese Beef and Rice Bowl)|
Gyudon, often literally translated as 'beef bowl', is a Japanese dish consisting of rice topped with beef and onion simmered in a mildly sweet sauce flavored with dashi, soy sauce, and mirin. It also often includes shirataki noodles. Gyudon is a very popular food in Japan, and it is commonly served with beni shōga (pickled ginger), shichimi seasoning, and a side dish of miso soup. Gyū means "cow" or "beef", and don is short for donburi, the Japanese word for "bowl".
