Recreating the famous Yoshinoya Beef Bowl

Prior to moving to NY, I've never cooked a dish in my life (except if you count frying bacon, sausages, etc. as cooking). Now, it has become a source of therapy for me, to help relieve me from stress, and, I get so much joy when people say that they love my meals.

The past few weeks, I've been making a lot of Japanese dishes. I've been fortunate enough to have lived in Japan for a couple of years. The country is just so beautiful, the people, amazing and the food... Oh, my goodness. To die for!

Ever since then, I've always looked for the dishes that I've grown to love and this includes the famous Yoshinoya Beef Bowl. Yoshinoya used to have a store on Times Square but unfortunately for me, they closed shop a year ago. It has been years since I last had one! I know, you're probably asking how I'm able to survive? Well, tonight, since I don't have the funds to fly to Japan to have a bowl, I've decided to make my own version of the famous comfort food. This recipe is soooo good, when Brian brought it to work the following day for lunch, people were asking what that it was!
