Simple Recipe: Eggplant Rice Bowl

simple recipe eggplant rice bowl

I’ve tried a few Japanese rice bowls in over a year of living in a foreign country where food is regarded as a work of art. My comfort food is their gyūdon (牛丼), a beef rice bowl that a foreigner will probably love at first try. This dish has inspired me to make this recipe. Nothing fancy. No art at all. Just plain simple and easy, but fulfilling. 😀

⇔ 500g, ground pork & beef

⇔ 1 tbsp, oil

⇔ 2 eggplants, chopped

⇔ 4 tbsp, soy sauce

⇔ 1 small white onion, chopped

4. Mix in the eggplants and soy sauce. Stir fry for 10 minutes.
