      Clear, easy and tasty recipe. We have just the same at the Japan centre in London and it's great havng it at home too now!!! We use light soy sauce to make it healthier and we top it with a small bunch of green beans, 2 large cup mushrooms and a couple of baby corn...and while it's still piping hot, we crack a raw egg on top and mix the whole thing. Delicious!

      This is so simple, but SUPER tasty! I used regular onion instead of sping onion, and substituted beef mince for beef strips. Not only does the mince cook cuper quickly, but it is really flavoursome! I served with Japanese Okayu infused with garlic.. Thank you so much! This is a great recipe, expecially for winter!

      The recipe is simple and easy but it is lacking. First the broth should be dashi based. 2nd it needs sliced onions, 3rd it needs beni shoga.

      So the recipe as is isn't bad, it just doesn't taste like authentic gyudon you'd find in Yoshinoya. There are a couple of recipes that include the dashi that are much more authentic tasting.
