This is a quick and simple meal that my family loves!  It’s a Yoshinoya-style Japanese Beef Bowl (Gyudon) – extra thin shaved beef steak is simmered in a delicious sauce and served over rice.  Trader Joe’s carries packages of shaved beef steak, Asian markets will usually have beef for shabu shabu or you can ask your butcher to use a deli slicer to shave a steak very thin (it doesn’t work well with hand sliced beef since it’s not thin enough & will be chewy)
