For some of you who are a fandom of animè and manga comics you might have read this dish which is an original Japanese steak recipe since 1936. In the Manga comics (Chapter 13), “this dish is exclusively made by Sōma combined with the Japanese original dish, the Chaliapin Steak and the donburi concept for his first Shokugeki. Although the dish was made with cheap ingredients that can be found in a supermarket, the dish focused on both innovation and balance of the ingredients to fulfill the donburi mantra.” ~Shokugekinosoma

Marination Time: 30-45 minutes

Chaliapin Steak DON – Shokugeki no Soma 


  • 1 kilogram Beef Sirloin
  • 1 Onion, diced/minced
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Oil
  • 100ml Red Wine
  • 1-1/2 tbsp. Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp Potato Starch
  • 10g Unsalted Butter


  1. Marinate Beef Sirloin: Finely chop onion and set aside. Slice on beef or scar it and then pound it using a kitchen mallet. (Pounding the beef helps to quickly cook the meat.) Marinate with minced onion for 30 – 45 minutes.
  2. Cook Beef Sirloin: Remove the beef from minced onion, then season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat pan, add in oil and cook beef on each side for about 2-4 minutes depends on how you want it cooked (rare, medium rare or well done).
  4. Remove from pan and drain excess oil. Let it rest after cooking each side. Transfer on a serving plate. Set aside.
  5. For the Sauce: In the same pan, melt butter and sauté onion. Let it cook until golden brown. Pour in red wine, soy sauce with potato starch.
  6. Use a whisker and keep stirring so there is no lump left. Keep stirring until sauce become smooth in consistency.
  7. Arrange beef sirloin on a large bowl with rice and pour in the sauce. Serve and enjoy!
  8. Serving Suggestion: Serve it with rice mixed with Umeboshi paste (pickled plum) in the donburi bowl. Place the beef on top and add plenty of sauce. Top with the finely chopped, cooked onions
