Three Color Soboro Don

"Soboro" is cooking minced (ground) meat with soy sauce, etc..
"Don" is an abreviation of "donburi" which means a "big" rice bowl.
"Soboro don" is cooked minced meat on top of a big rice bowl!
We often make this dish for our lunch box.
Typically we use ground chicken,
 but I often use ground pork because that is what my mother used.
I think pork has more flavor in it and tastes better. :)
Of course you can use either.

This Soboro is slightly salty. When eaten with rice, sweetened egg and green vegetables (peas or beans) then the harmony of flavors is perfect in your mouth!
My kids love it! 1 bowl is never enough for them,
 so I always have to make enough for seconds!

This is a perfect family and lunch box food
because it is easy and DELICIOUS!!

<RECIPE ★ Three color SOBORO DON>
4 servings
■ Pork Soboro
1.3 pound Ground pork
3 Tbs Brown sugar
2 Tbs Sake
2 Tbs Mirin (you can buy "real" mirin at some liquor stores)
6 Tbs Soy sauce
1 Tbs squeezed ground ginger juice
■ Sweet scrambled Eggs
3 Eggs
2 Tbs Brown sugar
1 Tbs Sake
1/2 Tbs Soy sauce
Vegetable oil

■ Green vegetables
Frozen green peas are the easiest!
or chopped green beans

1) Put all the ingredients for pork soboro in a sauce pan.

2) Use a couple of chopsticks to mix until all the liquid evaporates
and meat is crumbled.

★Evaporating all the liquid is the key point!!
Otherwise it won't taste as good.
3) Pour a little bit of vegetable oil onto a fryingpan and make the scrambled eggs
with all the "sweet scrambled eggs" ingredients.

4) Boil the peas in lightly salted water
then drain and cool them down.
5) Pour the rice in a bowl, then creatively arrange the soboro, egg, and peas
as shown below.

Use a spoon instead of chopsticks...
