You can consume this meat soboro in many creative ways, such as over rice, as a rice bowl filling, in a croquette, or in spring rolls!! Just divide into small portions and freeze it to use at a moment's notice.
Heat a small amount of vegetable oil in a pan. Add the meat and saute thoroughly, breaking it up into small pieces as you cook.
Add the mixed ingredients from step 1 to the pan. Fry over medium heat until the liquid is absorbed and evaporated.
When the liquid is gone, transfer to the the right hand side of a large plate.
Place a folded towel under the right side of the plate (the meat side). This will tilt the plate to allow the fat to drain.
Wait a while until the excess fat drains down to the empty side of the plate. Wipe it off with paper towels and it's done.
Divide the soboro into small portions and wrap in plastic wrap.
Place the wrapped portions in a ziplock bag for storage. When you want to use the soboro, remove the desired portion from the ziplock and microwave to use.
