    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 make it all worthwhile!  I hope the instructions were clear and helpful.

    As I continue my bento series, today I’ll show you this Shogayaki Bento (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.

    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), the only thing that I had to cook in the morning was this Quick & Easy Tamagoyaki.

    While I let the rice, Tamagoyaki and Ginger Pork to cool down, I washed and cut fruits.  When everything had cooled completely, I packed all the foods into the bento box.

    Nutritiously balanced with protein and fibre, this Shogayaki Bento is another delicious lunch box idea that I hope you would enjoy packing for your family.

    Our Recommendations for Buying Sashimi Online

    When we have a sudden craving for sashimi we usually buy from our local Japanese supermarkets. If you don't have a reliable shop to purchase quality sashimi nearby, we would recommend buying from Catalina Offshore online. They've been in business for over forty years and all the sashimi products we've tried from them are outstanding. The products we love are the saku cut tuna, hamachi loin, and all types of salmon.
