Rice: Rinse well, soak grains for at least 20 minutes prior to cooking. Once finished cooking, immediately uncover and fluff the rice by tossing with a spatula until every grain is separated. Let rest for five minutes and serve.

Hayashi Sauce: Heat oil in a pan and stir fry onions until golden brown. Add beef and mushrooms and cook for two minutes. Add cooking sake and allow to evaporate. Add stock/water, crushed tomatoes and bring to a simmer, then add the sauce mix. Cook until demi glaze sauce comes to the desired consistency and serve with rice. Garnish with pickled radish, takuan and a dollop of yogurt.
