This Japanese Beef Bowl is a very popular recipe in my house! 

The beef, onions and peppers are tossed together in the most delicious sauce

And the hardest part about making homemade beef udon is waiting for it to be ready!

One of my favorite part of this dish is the way the creamy egg pulls all the flavors together so well. 

I love Japanese food and at one time it was my favorite cuisine.

I mean have you tried Sushi? Hello!

Japanese Beef Bowl

Yes, it is possible and that is what I do.

So what is Sake? It is Japanese wine. It is used in cooking in most cases, however I do not use it at home.

So in its place I will use “Beef Stock” and I find it makes the dish just as delicious! 

Also this recipe traditional calls for “Dashi” which is a fish flavored stock.

So in its place, I use simple pre made “fish stock “which can be found in almost any supermarkets asian isle.

Japanese Beef Bowl

I have experimented with a few Japanese beef bowls over the years.

And I love this recipe a lot. You can skip the NORI seaweed topping and add green onions if desired!

But trust me the Nori makes it extra special if you ask me.
