Make Me A Freakin’ Beef Bowl, At Home


I know alot of you yearn to eat like us folk do in the big city. Yes we have a Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, BBQ, Thai restaurant on every street corner. The streets are lined with soy and BBQ sauce. So to ease the pain of seeing us eat like Kings, here’s a recipe to help you through those lonely nights of pot noodle.

To Make This…



You’ll Need These






  • 4 tablespoons of light soy sauce
  • A dash of sesame oil.
  • 1 1/2 cups of beef broth
  • 4 tablespoons of light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of mirin
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • 1lb. of Steak
  • 1 Large Onion
  • Green onion

Oh, and you’ll need one of these:

Mandoline Slicer. If you have one, you’re already awesome.

We got this one from Target for $10

Ok, now that you have everything, let’s go.

First thing, and this is key. Freeze your steak. Yup, freeze it. Load up your new slicer and start slicing up the beef. It doesn’t have to be completely frozen but if it’s solid it will shred the beef better. When you’ve done that put all the beef in a ziplock and throw it back in the freezer.

Prep the onion by cutting it into long thin slices.

Now on to the good stuff. In a pot put the beef broth, soy sauce, sugar, mirin and boil. 2 minutes into the boil, throw in the onion. When the onion is soft, about another two minutes add 1/2 of the beef and boil until the beef is cooked.

Splash with sesame oil.

You should probably make rice before you do all of this. So go back and do that.

I’ll wait.

Put your rice in an awesome bowl. A nice bowl makes almost any food look better. That bowl in the pic above I got at Hong Kong Supermarket for $7.

Straight from your pot of “soup” dump beef and onion on your bed of rice.

Add a bit of broth to the bowl, not too much, you’re not making soup. The broth is mostly to flavor the beef and onion. Plus, it’s salty as hell.

Done. You’re welcome.
