Beef Bowl (Gyudon)


Make Beef Bowl with minced beef instead of sliced beef. Super quick One-pan dish. It couldn’t be simpler.

Although it is usually cooked with sliced beef (because most beef and pork in Japan are sold in slices), it is only available in Chinese, Japanese and Korean supermarkets in the UK. And they are more expensive and frozen.
