For bento today, I made curry potato salad, a fried egg and onion shoyu pork.
Onion shoyu pork is one of my simple bento dishes, which you can make the day before and store in the refrigerator. Grated onion makes meet tender and gives it extra flavor. So you can also marinate all the ingredients together in the refrigerator before cooking and then cook it in the morning. A bit of grated garlic would make it even more flavorful and appetizing if you don't mind its smell at work or school. Other spices you like (red chili, ginger, whatever) would also work. If you're not a fan of the shoyu flavor you can switch the soy sauce and sugar to a little salt and some tomato puree or ketchup. Not to mention beef also goes well on this recipe.
Ingredients for 3 - 4 bentos
About 300 gram pork slices
half an onion, grated
1 and 1/2 to 2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 to 1 tablespoon sugar
Put all the ingredients in a pan or pot and mix well.
Cook it over medium-low heat for 5 - 6 minutes until done.
This onion shoyu pork is tender and tasty cold as well. Now it's time to give it a try!
