Kobe Beef Bowl

Kobe Top Round Steak is right at home in these delicious rice bowls –supper’s ready in the time it takes to cook rice! Serves 3-4 -- Medium

1 pound thinly sliced Wagyu (Kobe) Top Round Steak
1 small onion, sliced thinly
1 1/3 cups dashi, or beef or chicken stock
5 TBS soy sauce
3 TBS mirin
2 TBS sugar
1 TBS sake
Side dishes: Japanese rice and tossed salad

Have your butcher cut the beef into chip steaks as thin as possible without shredding – cut slices into 1.5 inch pieces.

Add stock, soy sauce, sugar, mirin and sake to a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Add onions and simmer until tender. Stir in the beef and cook for just a few minutes – test with a taste.

Serve over bowls of Japanese white rice with a tossed salad on the side. Can be garnished with toasted sesame seeds, pickled ginger and pinches of chile flakes. – ,

Chef’s Notes: With this dish, almost any cut of Wagyu will work beautifully if sliced paper-thin. Partially freezing and spiral slicing are the best way to achieve the perfect slice and thus the best texture.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
