Wagyu Steak Donburi -- teaser

The land of fish happens to produce the finest beef in the world as well. Japanese have a knack for perfecting things, whether it be fax machines, cameras, or the production of beef.

You have probably heard of Japan’s excuisite beef, Wagyu (和牛) literally ‘Japanese beef’. Kobe-gyu (神戸牛) is surely the most famous Wagyu in Japan.

This is a quick and tasty dish, a variation on donburi (rice bowl).

Just fry or grill a bit of fine steak, cube it and serve it on a bed of barley rice (麦ご飯, mugi gohan), garnish it with chopped scallions and finished with a splash of grated ginger shoyu.

When I cook rice I usually as some barley and put two big pieces of dried kombu (昆布, kelp) on top. As the rice is cooking, it is permeated with the rich and subtle taste of kombu.
