A Bento Item "Green Bean and Pork Rolls"

This scores high marks for looks and nutritional value! If you use frozen green beans, you don't have to boil them!

Ingredients: 1 bento serving

★Thinly sliced pork belly
2 slices
★Green beans (frozen)
*Salt and pepper
1-2 pinches each
*Soy sauce
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons


1. Roll 5 frozen green beans in a slice of pork. Put the green beans on the edge of the pork slice and roll up tightly.
2. If you made tamagoyaki (Japanese omelette) for the bento, you can just cook these in the same pan! It'll cut down on your cleaning!
3. Pan-fry the rolls over medium-low heat until lightly browned on the outside. Roll them around to brown the whole surface.
4. Cover with a lid for 1-2 minutes to cook through. Add the * ingredients. Let the soy sauce hit the hot surface of the pan to sizzle!
5. Cut the rolls in half to show off the pretty pattern on the cut side and pack in your bento box.
