Prior to her guesting on my show, I did a restaurant crawl with Sanya Lopez and I remembered she loved Japanese food but also was wary of sukiyaki being too sweet. I took that as a challenge and made this for her. Pork can used as a substitute for beef.
Ingredients (serves 2)
250 g beef sirloin or ribeye, cut sukiyaki style
1 large onion, sliced thinly
2 tbsps muscovado sugar
2 tbsps soy sauce
400 ml dashi or beef stock or water
2 large eggs
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsps oil
- Saute the onions in the oil over medium heat. Stir the onions from time to time to make sure they brown evenly. Cook until the onions turn brown, about 5-7 minutes.
- Add in muscovado sugar and cook for another 2 minutes.
- Pour in soy sauce and dashi and stir well.
- Add the beef slices one by one to make sure they all cook evenly. Season the broth with salt, pepper and sugar if necessary.
- To make soft boiled eggs, bring a pot of water to a boil. Shut off the heat and place the eggs in. Cover for 6 minutes and they will be ready.
- Serve the dish by placing rice in 2 bowls, topping it with the beef and onions, then a soft boiled egg in each bowl.
- Garnish with leeks if desired.
