Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 160 g roast beef
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 avocado
  • A dash of lemon juice
  • About 300 g cooked rice (hot)
  • A pinch of yuzukosho
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • Soy sauce, as needed



Cut the roast beef into thin slices and then into 2-3 cm strips. Thinly slice the onion across the grain and soak in cold water for 3 minutes to crisp. Drain and pat dry. Cut the avocado lengthwise in half, carefully cutting around the stone, and separate into two pieces. Remove the stone. Peel and cut lengthwise in half. Cut into 1 cm slices and coat with lemon juice.


Place the rice in individual bowls, cover with onions and top with avocado and roast beef. Garnish with yuzukosho and drizzle with olive oil. Serve with soy sauce.
