Beef Tenderloin Rice Bowl with Onsen Egg (Gyudon)

gyudon beef tenderloin rice bowl - pigoutyvr

This recipe is a creation from the leftover cooked beef tenderloin from my previous post – Pistachio-Crusted Beef Tenderloin. It is also inspired by the classic comfort food from Japan, Gyudon (Japanese beef bowl). This Beef Tenderloin Rice Bowl is paired with an onsen egg. When mixing the yolk with rice, it adds a layer of richness to the overall flavour. I would say this is the best part of the meal.
