This is our son's favourite food in the world. It's a simple recipe and can be prepared and cooked in under 15 minutes.
Gyudon is a sweet and savoury dish consisting of thinly sliced beef cooked in a mixture of soy sauce, mirin, sugar and sake. When we lived in Tokyo, this dish was our go to comfort food. It's fast and totally delicious.

Method: when you make Japanese rice, follow my grandmother's advice, and be sure to rinse the rice at least three times or until the water runs clear. After the rice has finished cooking, don't forget to fluff the rice with a rice spoon or fork and close the lid until you are ready to eat.
Beef: use a fattier cut of beef for better taste. Ask your favourite butcher to thinly slice it and when you prepare, cut against the grain.
