This is one of my favorite donburi dish – beef and tofu. It is just like beef donburi (gyu-don), with tofu. Normally, firm tofu is used in cooking as it’s more likely to hold its shape than soft silken tofu, but I love the silky smooth texture of silken tofu and I used it in this recipe.
Donburi is like Japanese version of fast food. Make it in one pot, and eat it all together with rice.
Mix them up and eat it like a man!
