Japanese-Style Eggplant & Ground Meat Bolognese on Rice

Japanese-Style Eggplant & Ground Meat Bolognese on Rice

I took a recipe that is well known for pasta and rearranged it so that it would go well with rice.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Mixed ground meat (beef+pork)
100 g
2 large
3 tablespoons
☆Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
☆Consommé soup stock cube
Crushed, 1/2
Salt and pepper
to taste
3+ tablespoons
Garlic (optional)
1 clove
Cooked rice (warm)
1 rice cooker cup (when uncooked)


1. Cook the meat in a frying pan. When cooked through, add the chopped eggplant (and optionally add some minced garlic) and lightly cook.
2. Add the water and cover with a lid. Keep an eye on it and steam-fry on medium heat to cook the eggplant.
3. Once the eggplant has cooked through and has become tender, add the ingredients and mix together. Adjust the flavor with salt and pepper, serve on top of the rice, and it's done.
4. Some people suggested adding carrots and onions and making extra so that it can be arranged into a filling toast topping the next day.

Story Behind this Recipe

Eggplant bolognese will absolutely go well with rice!

To shorten time and make it healthier, I steamed the eggplant.

This is so easy and only uses 1 frying pan, but even my husband loves it.
