Cut the cabbage to match the size of the thinly-sliced pork and roll up in the meat.
Combine all of the seasoning ingredients, except for the katakuriko, and coat Step 1. Dust the rolls with katakuriko.
Place the meat rolls in the frying pan with the seam side down and begin to pan-fry. Add the leftover seasoning ingredients from Step 2 and fry on medium heat for 2-3 minutes to finish.
Pour on the sauce that's left in the frying pan over the rolls when serving.
Story Behind this Recipe
I always make meat rolls with whatever vegetables I have on hand to use in bentos. Since cabbage doesn't need to be finely chopped or parboiled in order to be cooked quickly, it's simple and cheap to use. It can be made with just a small amount of meat but it's still an excellent dish so it's really economical.
These rolls cook quickly (but also burn quickly), so once the seam of the roll has hardened, roll them around with chopsticks as they cook to finish. You can also add some white sesame seeds.
