<Miwa’s tips> ※watch more tips on my video!

・Try not to overcook the pork otherwise they get tough.

・Mix the pork together with the marinade while the pork is still hot.

As the time passes, the pork will get dry. If it tastes too dry, feel free to drizzle on some toasted sesame oil.

I don't recommend putting this into your bento box more than 2 days after it's been made. When it comes to a bento box, fresher is better. You can always enjoy the leftovers as a meal prep at home.

<Storage time>

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
