Add a touch of acidity to your one-bowl beef dish with this ponzu beef donburi recipe. Donburi are one-bowl meals made by combining a serving of steamed rice with a meat or vegetable based topping. This version combines crunchy bean sprouts and pea shoots with thinly sliced beef and a splash of soy-citrus ponzu sauce for a hint of acidity. A delicious, easy-to-make meal and a must-try for donburi lovers.
Bring a pot of water to the boil. Add a sprinkle of salt, then simmer the bean sprouts and pea shoots for 1-2 minutes. Rinse with water and dry well.
Oil a frying pan and cook the beef on both sides until browned.
In a separate bowl, mix together soy sauce, vinegar, mirin, sesame oil, citrus juice and sesame paste to make a ponzu dressing.
Divide cooked rice equally into two serving bowls. Top with bean sprouts and pea shoots before placing beef on top. Finish with a drizzle of ponzu dressing and a sprinkle of shichimi chilli pepper for a little heat.
