I took this from an recipe and changed it a little to taste.
Simmered beef is served on top of steamed rice. It's one of the most popular rice bowl dishes (donburi) in Japan.
Yield: 4 servings
4 cups steamed Japanese rice
1 lb thinly sliced beef loin, cut into 2 inch lengths
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 1/3 cup dashi soup
1 cup water
4 Tbsp soy sauce
1Tbsp fresh ginger juice (grate and filter by wringing the mush through a paper towel)
1 crushed garlic clove
3 Tbsp mirin
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp sake (optional)
benishoga (pickled red ginger) for topping *optional
Put dashi, soy sauce, sugar, mirin, and sake in a large pan and bring to a boil on medium heat. Add onion slices and simmer for a few minutes or until softened. Add beef in the pan and simmer for a few minutes. Serve hot steamed rice into individual deep rice bowls. Put simmered beef on top of the rice. Top with some benishoga if you would like.
