So this is the dish I also made on Saturday, it suits perfect to have with the dumplings (click here for the dumplings recipe). I really had an Asian food theme this time. I always love to try out new things. One of the fun things about cooking.

Gyudon is basically a dish of thinly sliced fatty beef, cooked in a slightly sweet mixture of mirin and soy sauce and served over rice. You can find all of the ingredients at the supermarket, I went to Haugkaup here in Iceland.

4 port. 

Neutral oil, such as vegetable or canola oil
2 medium onions, very thinly sliced
500g very thinly sliced beef (fatty beef chuck or ribeye)
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons mirin sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce as Kikkoman
2 dl beef or chicken stock (you can buy concentrated and mix with water)
4 eggs
1 spring onion, chopped as garnish
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds as garnish

Cooked jasmin rice


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet or wok pan over medium high heat, and cook the sliced onions for about 10 minutes, stirring often.
  2. Add the beef and sugar, and cook until the beef is slightly browned.
  3. Add the mirin, soy sauce, and stock.
  4. Bring to a simmer, and cook for about 10-15 minutes to reduce the stock into a thin sauce. Taste for seasoning, and add a little more soy sauce if needed.
  5. Meanwhile, heat another couple tablespoons of oil in a cast iron or non-stick skillet. Cook the eggs sunny-side up. The yolks should still be runny!
  6. When the beef is done simmering, divide the rice among 4 bowls, and top with the beef and an egg for each bowl. Garnish with chopped scallion and toasted sesame seeds, if using.

So simple and so good! :)

    Where do you get the thinly sliced beef from? :)

      I just bought ribeye pieces at ‘Kronan’ and sliced it very thin. It’s important to have a sharp knife. :)
