I received very positive feedback on How To Make Bento post from the readers and I just want to say thank you! It took a bit of effort and many sleepless nights to put together the bento post, but the great feedback from you makes it all worthwhile! I hope the instructions were clear and helpful.
As I continue my bento series, today I’ll show you the Ginger Pork Bento I had prepared.
Previous Dinner Was: Shogayaki (Ginger Pork).
Ginger pork is one of the easiest Japanese pork dishes you can make! It takes less than 30 minutes to cook from start to finish. If you enjoy tender pork with a hint of ginger, you’ll love this dish.
Lunch Next Day:
- Shogayaki (Ginger Pork ) over rice
- Various fresh fruits
- Tamagoyaki (Japanese Rolled Omelette)
I defrosted a pack of frozen rice (See How To Freeze Rice) in microwave and fill 2/3 of the bento box my kids have. Besides reheating the Ginger Pork (see Food Safety For Bento), only thing that I had to cook in the morning was this Quick & Easy Tamagoyaki.
- Japanese steamed rice
- 1 egg + 1 tsp. sugar for Quick & Easy Tamagoyaki.
- Shogayaki (Ginger Pork)
- Shiso leaf (perilla) for garnish
- Kizami Shoga (pickled ginger) for garnish
- Fill up half of bento box with the rice. Let it cool so that hot/warm rice will not warm up other cool food.
- Make Tamagoyaki (see how to make Quick & Easy Tamagoyaki).
- Reheat leftover Shogayaki (Ginger Pork) in the frying pan until it's warm thoroughly.
- Wash and cut fruits.
- Start packing cooled foods into bento box.
- Cool down completely before closing the bento box.
