Japanese Beef Cubes Rice

If you have been to Japan, you will probably come across many of these food ticket fast food restaurant selling cheap and affordable rice bowl topped with generous serving of beef and you can add on an onsen egg to your rice by purchasing another separate ticket. Unfortunately such beef bowl is not as affordable in Singapore and it typically cost us at least $15-$30 (depending on the grade and quality of beef) to eat this rice bowl at a Japanese restaurant. This rice bowl is really simple to make and it doesn't take long to prepare too! This is definitely a prefect recipe for those who wants a quick fix of Japanese food at home!
