Steak Donburi

If you are the biggest fan of a good steak, well then this dish is exactly what you have been looking for. We tend to make it more for special occasions, even though it only takes a few minutes to make. Very important is that you need a very sharp knife!

Useful ingredient information:


Is Japanese rice wine, which is quite common in the Japanese and Korean kitchen. You can buy it at every Asian store.

Oyster sauce
