Today’s my Bento
It is the bento which put three colors of foods chicken soboro, scrambled eggs, and boiled snow peas( beans, okra, spinach, broccoli…you can use something green or boiled carrot (as a red)) on the plain rice.
“san” means 3 of a number , “Shoku” means a color.
“Soboro” is the food which crumbed, seasoned and parched the ground meat of a pig or a chicken, the fish, the shrimp, the egg, etc. Then, it is put on rice, or is used as a material of sushi or bento, or is put on vegetables, such as a boiled pumpkin, a radish, and a potato.
When they are put on the plain rice in a lunch box, it is called “Sanshoku-bento(三色弁当)”
If they are used on top of plain rice in donburi, it is called “Sasnshoku-don(三色丼)“
This is “Sanshoku-don”
This light informal meal “Don (bento)” which covered the dish fully on plain rice is very popular among Japanese people as a daily meal as the meal which does not require time, and also as an easy cooking.
How to make Sanshoku-bento(Don)
150g Ground meat(I prefer thigh: around 100yen/100g in Japan)
3~4 Eggs (around 100~200yen/1 dozen in Japan)
Green vegetables (that you like)
2tbsp Soy sauce
2tbsp Sake(or Water)
1,make fine scrambled eggs(just only egg and a little bit salt ).
2,Boil the green vegetable(today,I use kidney Bean)in salt water,and chop small.
3,Put the all of seasoning and ground meat in a pan,and then mix it well before put a pan over the fire.
4,Parch meat stirring constantly with chopsticks until all the liquid evaporates.
All that’s left now is to put on the plain rice.
Enjoy your lunch ♪
