Recipe by Second2None

This is my kind of Gyudon, my family favorite. I have made it million times (literally). It is such a quick and simple recipe that can be fixed in no time. Even Dashi and Mirin are not required. The recipe is posted here for safe keeping. Hope you like it as much as I do.

I added some minced garlic & fresh grated ginger to the marinade. I wasn't sure what Japanese grounded chili was so I used about a teaspoon of Sambal Oelek chili paste when stir frying the meat. Served over rice with some steamed snap peas made a quick & easy meal. Thanks for sharing, Second2None! Made for Unrated Asian recipe tag game.
