Very good copycat. I began by roasting a rump roast to rare. That way, I knew I could add the beef to the broth so it wouldn't get too tough. Also, I could use the roast for other stuff. I could tell that was way too much sugar and soy sauce for my tastes, so I cut that in half. Even with the sugar cut in half it was too much, so next time I will use even less. I also had to make a number of subs since I didn't have stuff on hand, which could have something to do with why the sugar made it too sweet. I used beef broth, vermouth and sherry in place of dashi, sake and mirin. Even with all the subs, it came out really good. Very pleased!
