Egg And Meat Soboro Obentou

Bringing a lunch box at work is common here in Japan. Ever since I got married, I' ve been making lunch boxes for my husband and though they' re not the ' traditional japanese style lunch box ', nor a ' character lunch box ' , I see to it that it is quick, easy, and reasonable to the budget. I' m usually preparing/ cutting the ingredients being used for the next day at night for time cutting next morning. Sprinkled into rice, folding into other things like eggs, pickles and more. Sometimes I cook for large amount and freezing them for future use. Eating packed lunches can help us save money. Above all else, my other way of showing love and effort for my husband by waking up early in the morning and preparing his lunch box. ^_^

Egg and Meat Soboro Lunch Box

Ground beef and pork - 80g
Cooking oil - 2/3 tablespoon
Onion - 1/2 pc
Ginger - 2 tablespoon, grated
Eggs - 2 pieces plus sugar and a pinch of salt ( if you want your scrambled egg sweet ) or salt and pepper
Sesame seed- 1 tablespoon
Green beans - 3 pcs ( boiled and cut into one bite sizes ) thawed, if frozen


Sugar - 1 tablespoon
Sake - 2/3 tablespoon
Soy sauce - 1 tabllespoon


1: Chop up all the vegetables as fine as you can ( if you have don' t much time in the morning, cut the ingredients the night before being used ).
2: Heat up oil in the pan. Add the vegetables and stir fry until softened.
3: Add the meat and brown well.
4:Add A and simmer until the liquid is almost gone, but the meat is still moist. Taste for seasoning ( it should be quite strongly flavored ). Set aside.
5: Make a scrambled egg --Heat up your pan ( it should have fairly high sides so don’t use a frying pan.) Pour in the egg. Hold 3 or 4 chopsticks together, and start mixing vigorously.
As the egg cooks, it will start to turn grainy. Continue mixing. Stop heat then set aside.
6. Put hot rice into lunch box then sprinkle #4 and #5 and boiled green beans on top of rice then sprinkle sesame seed. Cool down before closing and packing the lunch box.

Are you packing lunch to your loved ones?
