Canned Tuna Donburi

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by toninalani

This is a variation of other donburi recipes which is usually meat or fish cooked with an egg over a hot bowl of rice. This recipe can be done plain or fancy with what you have for left-overs. Substitute canned salmon or any leftover meat. Kids especially love this recipe!
