Filling Katsu Bento

Filling Katsu Bento

This is easily made with mentsuyu! It's a popular dish amongst my family.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Tonkatsu pork cutlet
1 cutlet
1 1/2~2
80~100 ml after diluting as instructed on the label
as needed
Japanese leek or onions


1. Cut the tonkatsu into 6 pieces. If you fry it in advance and store in the refrigerator, it's more convenient. Slice the Japanese leek diagonally.
2. Put the mentsuyu, sugar, and Japanese leek in a small pot and bring to a boil. Add the tonkatsu.
3. Add 3/4 of the beaten egg, cover with a lid, and simmer for about 20 seconds on high heat. Add the remaining egg, cover, and simmer for another 20 seconds. Let stand for about 2 minutes.
4. Fill the bento box with rice, then top with Step 3. If there's not a lot of liquid, add a bit of the mentsuyu.
