‘Yakiniku’ Sauce is a dipping sauce for Japanese style BBQ, but ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce can be used as a seasoning sauce for many dishes. The other day, I shared my Fried Rice recipe. This is a Takikomigohan recipe. Again, to season the dish, you only need ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce, nothing else. Using a rice cooker, this dish is super easy to cook.


4 Servings


250g Beef *thinly sliced and cut into bite-size pieces
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
3 tablespoons ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce *plus extra
2 cups (*180ml cup) Japanese Short Grain Rice
3 to 4 Shiitake Mushrooms *sliced OR cut in half and sliced if large
1 small Carrot *cut into small pieces
20g Garlic Chives *cut into 2-3 cm
*Note: You can use finely chopped 1 Spring Onion instead

  1. Thinly slice Beef and cut into bite-size pieces, add Sesame Oil and Yakiniku Sauce, and mix to combine. Set aside while you are preparing other ingredients. Slice Shiitake and cut Carrot into small pieces.
  2. Wash Rice a few times, place it in the rice cooker, and add Water up to 2-cups marking. Place Beef pieces with all liquid on top of the Rice, but DO NOT stir. Place Carrot and Shiitake pieces on top. Press ‘COOK’ button to start cooking.

  3. When Rice is cooked, add Garlic Chives (OR Spring Onion), and mix gently. Drizzle some extra ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce and serve. *Note: The flavour of ‘Yakiniku’ Sauce is mostly lost when cooked. Add extra Sauce after Rice is cooked, so that you can taste it better.
