Japanese rice bowls have a simple purity.You have everything you need in one bowl, where the flavours of all the ingredients blend together for a delicious and nourishing harmony.
Of course, even if you only need one utensil for a rice bowl, you need a variety of pots and pans for a rice bowl, right?Not necessarily, as we have a recipe that lets you cook a whole oxdon or beef bowl in an edible skillet.Yes, that means you don’t even need a rice cooker!All you need is a junk jar, and you can get this type from any camping or outdoor supplier.
Ingredients: ①Rice (144ml [4.7oz]) – Water (180ml [6.1oz]) – 4x concentrated bonito stock (2.5tbsp) – Mirin sake (1tbsp) – Beef (150g [5.3oz]) – 1/2 onion – 1 egg yolk – pickled ginger (appropriate amount) – green onion (appropriate amount)
Once again, this recipe comes from Japanese YouTuber chef Ken Outdoor Cooking, and while it was originally made while camping, there’s nothing stopping us from using it to make some super easy, super delicious beef donuts at home too.
Step 4: After the rice has been soaked for 30 minutes, pour the mensuyu and mirin into the pot and stir gently a few times.
Step 5: Add onion and beef.In particular, you want to make sure the beef is evenly distributed so that all of it is fully soaked in the flavors of the broth.
If you’re using a piece of solid cooking fuel, Ken says you can let it go until the fuel runs out.On the other hand, if you are using a gas stove, you want to start cooking on medium heat for the first 10 to 15 minutes, then switch to low heat and cook for another 10 minutes.It may seem like a long time, but beef burrito is a nimono, a traditional Japanese stew, so the cooking process is slow and steady.
â–¼ Since the contents are boiling, you may need to place something on top of the dinner plate to prevent the lid from lifting while heating.
Step 7: After cooking, wrap the plate in a towel and let it steam for the final 15 minutes.
Step 8: At this point, the aroma of the beef bowl should become unbearable.Fortunately, it’s almost edible, so remove the jar lid carefully, making sure not to burn your fingertips.
Step 9: If necessary, spread out the meat to smooth out any lumps, then pour the yolks in the center.
This is actually an optional step.Some people prefer beef bowls without eggs, which is fine.For those who prefer egg yolks, though, Ken says the oxdon itself is hot enough to cook the egg yolks.
Step 10: Finally, add as much kimchi ginger and scallions as you can.This is also an optional step, because while they add some nice color to the presentation, some people prefer to enjoy the immediate flavors of the beef, onion, and rice without any additional disruption to their palate.
All that’s left to do now is dig deeper!If you’ve added egg yolk, it’s best to break it apart with chopsticks when you start eating it to maximize its coverage and help it absorb the heat of the rice.
Including the soaking time for the rice, the entire meal prep process takes about 60 minutes.But while this recipe doesn’t provide instant gratuity, you really only need about 10 minutes of active work.That means you have plenty of time to pitch your tent, flip through photos from your hike, and build up your appetite while cooking dinner, or just relax on the couch, if you want to turn on a cold couch…stay home, Treat yourself to this delicious outdoor recipe.
