Bento Dinner

I recently made a bento dinner. It included Ginger Pork, Fried Fish Cake, stir fried cabbage with tomato and mixed Japanese vege. I bought the fish cake and the mixed vege from a local Japanese market. The ginger pork is really easy dish and is my husband's favorite.

Ginger Pork Recipe:
Thin slices of Pork (Shabu shabu cut)
1 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1/2 tbsp cooking oil

Marinate the pork with soy sauce and grated fresh ginger (include the ginger juice). Cook the marinated pork in hot oil.

Stir-fried cabbage Recipe:
Chopped Garlic
Diced tomatoes

Cut cabbage into 1 inch slices. Heat garlic in hot oil. Add cabbage and stir-fry. Add tomatoes when the cabbage is almost done and salt to taste.

Mixed Japanese Vege Recipe:
1 tbsp of sugar
1/2 cup of water
1 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tbsp of sake
1 tbsp of mirin
1 bag of mixed Japanese vege (includes lotus roots, carrots, taro, shitake mushroom)

In a pot, bring water to boil and add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for 20 minutes.
