Keyword: beef, eggs, japanese, meat, onions, rice, seaweed


  • 1/2 an onion cut to wedges
  • Thinly sliced lean beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sake
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 egg beaten
  • Shredded seaweed for garnish
  • Shichimi Pepper
  • Sunflower oil
  • Water
  • Cooked Rice


  • I like to cook my onions first to get them soft. Heat a pan with some sunflower oil and sautee the onions for 2 mins.
  • Add the beef and sautee till it's semi-cooked.
  • Add the sake, mirin and soy sauce and some water (depending on how dry you'd like it to be)
  • Let it simmer in low heat for few seconds.
  • Add the brown sugar and stir.
  • Pour the beaten egg all over the beef and cover for 2 seconds just to let the egg cook but not all the way. Turn off the heat.
  • Ladle some rice into a bowl. Pour the contents of the beef and egg on top.
  • Garnish with sprinkling of shichimi pepper and shredded seaweed.
