Miso-Marinated Pork for Bento

Miso-Marinated Pork for Bento

If you make this in advance and freeze it, it comes in handy as a bento dish. This is also good for a quick lunch.

Ingredients: 6 slices

Pork roast or loin (for tonkatsu)
6 slices
Marinade
Miso
110 g
Sake
80 ml
Mirin
80 ml
Soy sauce
70 ml
Caster sugar
120 g

Steps

1. Add the soy sauce and other marinade ingredients to the miso little by little, and mix well between additions to make the marinade.
2. Cut each slice of pork into 5 pieces, and put into ziplock bags of the right size.
3. Add 5 tablespoons of the marinade to each slice of meat, and let it sit in the fridge for 1 day to absorb the flavor.
4. If you're planning to freeze it, put it in the freezer after 1 day of marinating. Defrost the meat right before using.
