Soft ton stands for “soft” of course and ton is actually another way to pronounce Buta/豚/pork in Japanese! It is a very popular way of eating pork in Japan as it is very eclectic!
The Missus had plenty of plain cooked rice left from the night before and she made a simple and tasty Tamago Chahan/玉子チャハン/egg fried rice, Japanese style with it!
She next prepared soft ton in tonkatsu style (ton/pork being repeated as you can see!) she placed on top of the rice seasoned with tonkatsu sauce. For the finishing touch she added chopped parsley and home-pickled onions with amazu/sweet vinegar!
The Missus conceived a typical Japanese side box with a salad of boiled carrot sticks and string beans seasoned with gomadare/sesame dressing resting on ice plants. Mini tomatoes for more design, colors and vitamins and Japanese pear/Nashi/梨 for dessert!
I know that this combination of fried rice and tonkatsu would appeal to a lot of people!
What with the side dish a perfectly balanced yummy bento!

Yummy, does your wife have a recipe for those yummy seasoned string beans?
Very simple: boil them and serve them seasoned either with gomadare or crushed peanuts!
You are most welcome my pepper friend!
Oishisooooooooooo!!!! I love the idea on tamago cha-han and tonkatsu on top!
I suppose I can guess what you are trying next! LOL
This pork bento makes me so hungry! I would love to taste ice plant one day… It looks very intriguing. Is the pork fried similarly to tonkatsu? (Oh, so this is why it’s tonkastu and not butakatsu?) Thank you for the Japanese lesson 🙂
Yes the Missus prepares it like tonkatsu!
You really seem to like them LOL
Next two coming next week!
