Rice bowls are something I have eaten often in restaurants or food courts. Realized I have never made them and that my wife had never had one. It seemed like the perfect time to correct that.
This recipe means you have to use a bit of knife skills. Other than the knife skills it is a simple recipe to make. This recipe is for 2 people but is easily doubled or tripled.
