Review: Yoshinoya microwave Gyoku don (Beef with onion)

Not the best and not the worst in the world.

Definitely very heavy on both the salt and sake, had that sharp after taste you get when the sake hasn’t fully cooked out of something.

I would have liked to have had more onions in it. The few that there was, were so over cooked they were disintegrating. Also the sauce was a bit liquid and oily from the fat in the meat. I was glad I put it in a serving dish, rather than directly on the rice.

With all that said would I buy it again?

Yes, I would purchase again to have for a quick easy meal if I was busy or sick and didn’t want to cook and prepare a regular meal.

Please forgive me for using basmati rice in the picture, at that point it was the only rice in the house and we weren’t feeling well…so I used what I had. 😅

Rating: 3/5

Packaging: 4/5 easy to heat up and minimal trash afterwards, minus one star because of the plastic

Overall taste: 3.5/5 As mentioned it was a bit heavier on the salt/sake taste than I normally like but still tasty.
