Cook Rice:In a medium pot, bring 11⁄2 cup water to a boil. Stir in the rice, cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes until all of the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and set aside in a warm place, with lid on, to let rice finish cooking. Fluff the finished rice with a fork.
Prepare Ingredients:Meanwhile peel and julienne ginger. Grate carrot. Cut cucumber lengthwise and slice into half moons. De-string sugar snap peas and cut in half. Pat steak dry with paper towel and cut into 1⁄2 cm wide stir fry strips.
Pickle Red Onion:Peel and thinly slice 1⁄2 the red onion. Combine sliced red onion and vinegar in a small bowl with 1⁄2 the sugar, salt and pepper. Mix well to combine and set aside to pickle.
Cook Beef & Carrot:In a frypan, heat sesame oil (see tip) over medium-high until hot. Add beef, ginger and grated carrot and cook, stirring frequently, for 4-5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add oyster and soy sauce. Cook a further 1-2 minutes or until combined and beef is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
You Plate It:Divide rice and beef between bowls. Add cucumber, pickled onion and sugar snap peas. Drizzle with tonkatsu mayo and garnish with sesame seeds.
