I found this yakiniku recipe and would love to hear what the experts think of it!

Of all those I read on the net, this one sounds tastiest, but also complicates what should be a very simple dish...hmm. Anyway, I should be trying it this evening and will post how it went, but please do comment or recommend any little alterations to the recipe you would make. 😌

Is that the stuff they serve at Yoshinoya? My husband is always asking me to make it, and since I don't eat the stuff I don't know what it is supposed to taste like - does this recipe seem like it would taste similar?

No GG san, that's gyudon they serve at Yoshinoya - pretty simple to make though I think, and recipes abound on the net :)

T-P chan, yes it does sound nice, doesn't it?! I'll be sure to let you know how I get on :)

Thanks MOS, see I really don't have an idea!😊

Goldengirl, there is much for us all to learn, and even about the simpler things in life (and not least for myself!!) 😊

Please do try to make gyudon for your dear hubby - I'm sure he'd be over the moon. Imvho, it's one of those really romantic touches in a relationship; to do something so simple, knowing that that it means so much :) And the recipe is pretty simple, I think, and pretty much fool-proof with a few basic, necessary ingredients. Here's one for you (and hubby!) from Japanese Food & Recipes (for actual link to recipe please click here)

Oishi so na?!

Well, no yakiniku here for me as yet (meat once a day is more than enough, and I had to cook a roast pork lunch for my family here today - was pretty tasty actually; roast potatos, carrots, celeriac and carrots with a cider and onion gravy and of course CRACKLING!! 😌)

But hopefully tomorrow! :)

In the meantime, happy mealtimes one and all :)



mountains of saliva (dribbling down my chin already) heehee

🌹Awww.MOS....you are so sweet. I read the recipe you gave me a link to, they say it tastes like Yoshinoya! So yeah, I'll make it for my sweetie. It says thin slice beef, does it matter what cut? I am guessing not.....

Well, better late than never, I suppose (and hope!) I'm not sure of the cut Goldie, but it is super super thin, and quite fatty...

As for the original recipe, it was extremely salty, but perhaps I used too dark a soy sauce.

<edit> My word, almost a thousand views on here! Did anyone else try it?

Gyudon is more like sukiyaki than what we call yakiniku in Tokyo. Here's a pic of yakiniku which is simply broilled bite size bits of beef. (The secret is the dipping sauces for the meat--teriyaki, ground sesame, or something else I forget--IMO go with the sesame.)
