The canned "K & K tamago kake gohan corned beef" that was released in 2017 and became a hot topic on SNS. I've been curious about it for a long time, but I found it at a nearby 7-Eleven store, so I bought it.
Kokubu corned beef cans developed exclusively for egg-shaped rice. The juicy corned beef made from 100% beef is softly finished with bonito and kelp soup stock, and it goes well with eggs. The content was 80g (2.82oz), and the selling price at Seven-Eleven was 410 yen (tax included).
When you open the lid of the can, it has a much fresher texture than ordinary corned beef. If you scoop up a soft mass and put it in your mouth, the umami of the beef and dashi will melt and spread. The smooth taste, which is sweeter than salty, surely goes well with raw eggs! Let's try the "delicious way to eat" on the side of the package.
First, put the corned beef on the rice and make a dent for the egg on the surface. Gently drop the egg into the dent. After that, you can eat it while breaking it little by little with chopsticks, or you can mix it well before eating. The mellow and rich taste combined with the egg is reminiscent of yukhoe and negitoro.
There is a lot of volume, so even if you reduce the amount you put on rice to 1/2 can, you will be fully satisfied. It is also recommended to add spices such as green onion, ginger, and wasabi to make the taste a little refreshing.
