One of my family’s favourite dinner menus is ‘Sukiyaki Don’. I use a variety of Vegetables to cook it, but I am reluctant to do that when I cook it only 1 serving for myself. This simple version is what I most frequently cook. It’s yummy, nutritious and very filling.


1 Serving


100g Firm Tofu *medium firm type can be used
125g Beef Mince
1 teaspoon Oil *I used Sesame Oil
Green Leafy Vegetable *e.g. Choy Sum, Bok Choy, Spring Onion, Garlic Chives, etc.
*Note: Today I used 60g Choy Sum
1 serving warm Cooked Rice

1/2 teaspoon grated Ginger
1 & 1/2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
1/2 tablespoon Sugar
1 tablespoon Mirin
1 tablespoon Sake (Rice Wine) OR Water

  1. Combine all the Sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Heat Oil in a frying pan over medium heat, cook Beef Mince. Add the Sauce and Green Vegetable, and bring to the boil. Add Tofu and cook until the sauce is thickened.
  3. *Note: Some Vegetables can be cooked very quickly. If you use Garlic Chives OR Baby Spinach, add them very last.
  4. Half fill a bowl with warm Cooked Rice, cover it with the mixture, and enjoy.
