Marinated beef and pasta bento

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!

Quick teriyaki beef donburi

You can buy thin beaf slices in some grocery shops or butchers. They may be called minute steaks or quick steaks and are a great ingredient that you can use to make a quick donburi (a rice bowl with meat and vegetable toppings). It's so fast to prepare, that you can do everything in the time it takes to cook the rice!

Pineapple teriyaki curry with chicken

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.

Sweet Mustard Eggs Bento

I got tired of sausages after yesterday's deluxe bento, so today I decided to have some eggs with lunch. I put some sweet mustard over the cooked yolk to have them pack some punch and they were really interesting!

I prepared also hand-made furikake (rice sprinkles) with ingredients I like, which made my rice extra tasty today!

Deluxe bento idea

This idea mixes the basic sausage bento idea with previously mentioned teriyaki smoked salmon don for a more premium feel of the bento, without adding any more trouble while making the bento.
