Gyūdon 野菇牛丼 簡單食材中奧妙的味道 Sweet and soy mushroom beef bowl

This is also one of Mr. Big’s favorite dish, his impression of Taiwan since his childhood. Whenever he’s away from home for a while, the top-of-mind cuisine that he wants from me is this spicy beef stew.

He will be coming home soon from a one-month training. I just spent a couple hours in the kitchen making this beef stew yesterday and let the meat sit in the broth overnight to soak in all the flavors. Today would be the perfect timing to serve this warm comfort food to welcome my man home. 🙂
