The 'Obama Bowl' Debuts At A Hiroshima BBQ Restaurant

Last month, Barack Obama became the first US president to visit Hiroshima in the decades after the bombing of WWII.

While the United States has yet to formally apologize for the devastating attack, the gesture has not gone unnoticed by locals - with one restaurant honoring the president with their very own Obama Bowl.

En-ya, a restaurant popular for its Korean barbecue, has begun selling an 'Obama Bowl' dinner special for 880 yen (~$8 USD).

So what makes the Obama Bowl an Obama Bowl?

Well, a standard Obama Bowl features:

- Medium-rare slices of American imported roast beef (seasoned with salt from Obama's home state of Hawaii)
- A custom soy-based marinade
- Shredded cabbage over a bed of white rice
- Strips of toasted nori seaweed
- A soft-boiled egg

So what do you guys think? Could this be Obama's favorite new Japanese food?

Let me know what you think about the Obama Bowl, and if you're visiting Hiroshima any time soon and want to try the Obama Bowl for yourself, you can find their official website right over here.

Obama Bowl, out!

Man Barack Obama was a good president. he could've gotten so much done if it wasn't for Congress stopping him because they're full of dumb republicans
@animerg13 It makes me want to be a president just so other countries will make nifty dishes inspired by my existence.
I don't like Obama, but this food sounds interesting. maybe even good.
@Animaniafreak Right? I'd be honored to have a beef bowl named after me. Mmmm beef.
I want one

Perfect Pan-Seared Steak
The basics to any perfect steak dish is a good quality, high-grade cut of beef. Ingredients: 1 bone-in or boneless rib eye steak or sirloin steak at least 1 ½ pounds, cut to at least 1 ½ inches thick Pinch of salt Freshly ground black pepper 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons butter 2 peeled garlic cloves, left whole Few sprigs fresh parsley, including stems Optional: Wine and stock (chicken, beef, veal,etc.) and butter for deglazing the pan and making a delicious pan sauce Directions: 1. Salt and pepper one side of the steak. 2. Heat your seasoned cast iron skillet to smoking hot. Add oil and swirl around to coat. Add steak seasoned-side down (place it in pan away from you so you don’t get splattered), and then salt and pepper the other side of the steak. At this point do not touch it for two minutes. Using tongs (never pierce the meat with a fork), flip the steak and add butter, garlic and parsley to the pan next to the steak. Allow the steak to cook for 2 more minutes. 3. Right after you flip the steak for the first time, with a spoon or small ladle, keep basting the melted butter over the steak. Baste continually for the full two minutes (tilt pan a little if you have to, to get the butter onto the spoon). 4. After two minutes on each side, keep flipping and basting the steak each time leaving the steak for 30 seconds before turning. Test the steak with the poke test (see note below) and remove at medium rare at about the five to six minute mark of total cooking time. Cook a minute or two longer for medium to well. A thicker steak (such as a sirloin) may take longer. 5. Turn off the heat and baste one more time. Leave the steak in the pan loosely covered with foil for 10 minutes and allow to rest before cutting. Baste one more time, and remove to a cutting board. Either cut the steak in half for each serving or for a nicer presentation, slice on the bias and serve slices. 6. Discard the pan drippings or if desired, deglaze the pan with a little wine, then and stock and simmer for a few minutes to reduce the drippings. Add a tablespoon or two of butter to thicken for a nice pan sauce .
