….I usually make and store tsuyu sauce, mat-gan-jang, udon soup base, and broth…… so when I’m busy, I can easily make dishes with just a few ingredients from the refrigerator and some sauce. I made a quick and easy beef rice bowl using udon soup base, a dish I often made for my daughters when they were growing up. This simple recipe is versatile and has been shared with many people. Sometimes, I would even bring a pot and enjoy it together while sharing stories, a delicious bowl of food… church small group meetings! Until a few years ago, we used to gather once a week to reflect on the Lord’s word, have a simple lunch together, and share good moments. Even in those grateful times, my beef rice bowl, made in a large pot and shared, brings back memories of all those faces. Anywhere, to anyone, my beef rice bowl has always been a bowl of joy. I use udon soup base mixed with water, rather than soy sauce, for a richer flavor. Thinly sliced beef is essential, but you can add mushrooms or vegetables as desired for a different taste. The soft-cooked egg is satisfying both to look at and to eat.
