This is a Japanese rice bowl with tender sweet and savory beef! The onions were sautéed and mixed with sliced beef, brown sugar, soy sauce, mirin and broth to simmer. I serve this over rice with a crispy fried egg! It’s such a simple recipe, yet packed with flavor!
When I first made this recipe for my husband, he was surprised with how easy it was! It’s just sauteéd onions and sliced beef with some sauce ingredients and that’s it!
I made this recipe months ago for the first time and it’s been on my to-do list to add it to my blog so that’s what I’m doing here. It needs to be on my blog because it’s a recipe I truly believe you need to try and will likely make on repeat. It’s a quick 20 minute meal too!
