San Shoku Don Buri

This is really a very simple meal to make and is one of our familys’ favorite quick Japanese meals.

Serves 4
4 – Cups of cooked rice
1 lb. – Hamburger
6 – Eggs
1 – Can of corn
1 – Can of green beans

Simmering Sauce:*
¼ cup – Water
4 Tbs.  – Soy sauce
3 Tbs.  – Mirin (Mirin is an essential condiment used in Japanese cuisine. It is a kind of rice wine similar to sake, but with a lower alcohol content and higher sugar content.)
1 Tbs. – Sugar
You can change the toppings as you’d like

In a large pan brown the hamburger then drain off the excess fat. Add the ingredients for the sauce and bring it up to a strong simmer but not a boil. Scramble the eggs with a little salt and ½ tsp. of sugar then set aside.

Warm up your toppings.

Assemble the bowls with 1 cup of rice then add the hamburger and sauce. Arrange in separate areas of the bowl your toppings and serve.

*Adjust the amount of simmering sauce as needed
