Gyudon with Lotus Root Crisps

Recipe Description:

Japanese cuisine is full of abbreviations— ‘don’ refers to ‘donburi’, a meal of rice served in a bowl together with a topping of prepared ingredients. Originating as a quick, convenient way to serve Japanese workers in the 19th century, donburi caught on nationwide, and now many of Japan’s most iconic dishes, from sushi to tempura, can be found as -don toppings. Gyu-don (‘beef bowl’), a Western-inspired stew, is the signature dish of some of Japan’s most popular fast food chains. Yet its purest, heartiest incarnation is simple and home cooked, with thin slices of beef and onion leaking flavour into the simmering broth.
