Chaliapin Steak Don is a dish made by Sōma Yukihira for his first Shokugeki against Ikumi Mito.


The 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, "Dons are completed in one bowl."


  • Beef Sirloin (Super market discount)
  • Onion
  • Garlic (mix with onion)
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Potato Starch
  • Rice (Donburi Bowl)
  • Umeboshi Paste (Pickled plum)

Sauce Edit

  • Red Wine
  • Soy Sauce
  • Butter


  1. Chop the onions finely.
  2. Remove the tendons from the beef and beat it with a meat tenderizer.
  3. Cover meat with the chopped onion and leave for 30 minutes or more. Remove the onion and add salt and pepper.
  4. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a frying pan and fry the onion used for the beef until it changes color. Adjust the flavor with salt and pepper, then move the onion to a dish.
  5. Melt the remaining butter in the frying pan and fry the sides of the meat before taking it out.

Making the Sauce:

  1. Add red wine to the frying pan used for the beef to deglaze it. Boil down the wine while scraping off the meat juice.
  2. Add soy sauce and mix with everything. Adjust seasonings to personal preferences.
  3. Thicken with dissolved potato starch.

Put rice mixed with Umeboshi paste in the donburi bowl. Place the beef on top and add plenty of sauce. Top with the finely chopped, cooked onions.

Real FactsEdit

The Chaliapin Steak is an original Japanese steak. It is a dish made in 1936 for the Russian opera singer Feodor Chaliapin when he visited Japan. At the time, he was suffering from toothaches and said, "I want to eat a tender steak." This dish was devised to answer to his request.[1]
