This one is a real pickle — it's extremely simple, and doesn't look spectacular, but packs a serious punch of flavor and deliciousness. You can easily upgrade or downgrade the recipe based on your liking, use different ingredients, but as long as you make ground meat under a blanket of mashed potatoes, it's gonna be fine ;-)
Drinking yogurt is a terrific drink for autumn — it tastes fresh, contains probiotic bacteria and makes a great dessert or a quick snack, not only during autumn. But during this time of the year it is especially important to keep the natural defense high against viruses and bacteria, and yoghurt is a superb ally in that! Did I mention it tastes great? ;-)
This recipe came to life when I was left with no fresh milk after a short travel — I had only one mini-bottle of a drinkable probiotic yogurt and some condensed milk for coffee (sic!). But against all odds, it worked out!
This simple recipe requires only 3 ingredients: sliced pork loin (already mentioned minute steaks or easy steaks), shallots and teriyaki sauce. It's also one of the lazy recipes — part of it you can prepare evening before, and finish it quickly before serving or packing your bento box. Plus, marinating for a long time allows increased flavors to transfer easily across the meat!
Bento is not only rice, but also other ingredients, like... pasta. This recipe came to life when I had some uncooked beef left-overs and just wondered what to do with them. Cooking them as a part of bento was a great idea!
Give yourself an oriental, savory feast with this simple, yet very spectacular dish. Simple, tasty, and doesn't require lots of ingredients, which is a perfect idea for a nice, cozy evening.
