Gyudon (or Beef Donburi | Beef Bowl) is like a comfort food for Japanese. It can be prepared quickly and it has nutritious ingredients like beef, onion, eggs, and rice. I cook this meal when I have full schedule with kids’ activities until dinner time. Tired of ordering in a pizza? How about Gyudon tonight? Enjoy!

- Heat the skillet over medium high heat and add the oil. Stir-fry the onions until wilted.

- Add sake, mirin, and soy sauce and mix together.
- Reduce the heat and simmer until most of the liquid is gone.
