This recipe pumps up the volume of the chikuwa!! Your kids will eat it all up. It is great as a side dish or in bento.
I was getting tired of stuffing in just asparagus and cucumber, so I wrapped it up in pork slices that I just so happened to have, and it transformed from a beer snack into a side dish.
If you place the overlapped parts of the pork on the bottom when cooking, then it won't unravel. You can enjoy this with just salt and pepper, but it is fun to dip it in sauce.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
