Gyudon (牛丼), is a popular quick meal (especially for boys) consisting of a bowl of steamed rice topped with thinly sliced beef and onion simmered in a sweet and savory dashi broth (fish and seaweed stock) seasoned with soy sauce and mirin (sweet rice wine).
It is commonly topped with pickled ginger, ground chili pepper, and served with a raw egg or a soft boiled egg.
Do Japanese people really eat raw eggs!?
Yes, we do! and we love it (me? so-so), some have them on a daily basis. I know this unique food custom in Japan surprises people from overseas. This is not widely known, but Japan is the only country you can eat raw eggs. Japanese eggs are under strict hygiene control. All eggs in the market are washed and pasteurized. Therefore you do not have to worry about salmonella poisoning.
Maybe you will get addicted to it once you try…
Of course, I will not force you to eat eggs raw. We can also make soft boiled eggs 🙂
Gyudon can be found everywhere in Japan. There are so many fast food chains specialize in the dish. Students and “Salary-man” loves Gyudon because it tastes good and it’s filling, and very reasonably priced. I don’t know how Gyudon chains can do such low pricing because beef is pretty expensive in Japan. Some people say they use low-grade meat… Anyway, it tastes good but nothing beats homemade with good fresh ingredients!

Dear our wonderful members and guests,It is with deep sadness to announce that we have decided to close JJ Kitchen for the time being.During the past 5 years, we have enjoyed cooking and discussing cultural issues with each and everyone. However, Junko had a stroke in June and is currently in the hospital undergoing physiotherapy. Since we do not know how long this will take, we have come to the conclusion to close our doors. For those of you that still have our vouchers, we will be contacting you separately.For JJ Kitchen members, we will contact you regarding future lessons.We thank you all for the love and support you have shown JJ Kitchen, and we hope that we can cook together again.
