Korean Style Beef over Rice-Yakiniku Donburi

Updated on September 20, 2014
Korean Beef Bowl
Korean Beef Bowl

Donburi, literally means "bowl" and the name is used for almost any dish that consists of fish, meat, seafood or any other combinations of ingredients that are served over rice. There are many varieties of donburi ( shortened to just "don" when combined with ingredients ) dishes in Japan but the most popular ones are oyakodon ( chicken and egg over rice ), katsudon ( simmered pork cutlets over rice ) and my personal favorite, tendon ( tempura over rice ).

I don't eat meat that often but when I do, I prefer to eat them in a stir-fry or as a donburi dish. Tonight I decided to make a Korean-inspired dish that's quite popular in Japan. Yakiniku Don or Korean Style Beef over Rice, is one of the more substantial meal in a bowl and is especially popular with meat lovers. It's a hearty dish that's extremely simple to make and tastes amazing. Just make sure that you are using Japanese or short-grain rice. If you are on a low-carb diet, you can scoop the beef mixture into lettuce leaves instead. Personally, I think this dish tastes better with rice so if you can, eat it with rice. I also like to add carrots and green beans adding a bit of color to the dish.

      It looks so good. It looks so good. It looks so good. I seldom eat red meat too so when I do eat it I really enjoy the flavor and this looks like it's got it all.

      I've enjoyed stone bowl bibimbap many times in Korean restaurants around Toronto. Your recipe looks (by far) the easiest for me to do. Love your sauce recipe.
