Today’s Bento/Lunch Box (12/23): Egg Ribbons and Beef Chirashi Sushi Bento!

The Missus loves to make Chirashi Sushi for my bentos (and her own lunch!) but this might be the last for some time as “she is running out of ideas”!
Well, this particular one was a good idea!

The chirashi Sushi was designed in a two-color concept with a neat third coloration provided with violet daikon sprouts!

The Missus did prepare egg ribbons first while steaming the rice. They are not so difficult to make although they are very spectacular!

She stir-fried fine beef ribbons in ha sauce of hers (she wouldn’t disclose the ingredients!) and let them cool down.
Once the rice was steamed she added vinegar and a little sugar to turn it into sushi rice and finally mixed it with some fried beef and boiled green peas for more impact.
She then filled the box with the sushi rice mixture and topped half with egg ribbons, the other half with stir-fried beef and boiled green peas and drew a separation with fresh violet daikon sprouts!

A spring time side box with vegetable and fruit salad!

Boiled broccoli and marinated mushrooms lined with fresh lettuce and topped with plum tomato!

For dessert “Natsu Mikan” orange and yellow kiwi fruit with imported cherries!

Very satisfying, pleasant to the eyes and so yummy!

  1. A work of art! Egg ribbons look lovely. The Japanese love so much eggs and make miracles out of them. And peeled orange wedges once more! I have just added purple daikon seeds to my shopping list when I finally visit Japan.


    1. Actually egg ribbons are very easy: make a very thn omelet on a non-stick pan and cut them in long thin strips!
      Seriously speaking I might as well as prpare a parcel of seeds for you!
      Send meyour address and I’ll send you a batch!


      1. Thank you for the tip! It’s very very kind of you, but since it’s not a life or death item (not like katsuobushi I can luckily get here for example) I prefer to add this as one of the things I will do on my trip to Japan… Seeds shop is one of THE places on my visiting list (no temples though 😉 ) I hope it arrives before the end of the year. Thank you so much for your proposition!


      2. You are most welcome!
        Actually, I might have made a mistake as it might have been red cabbage sprouts.
        These days they even sell mixed sprouts here!


      1. I know, I know … LOL! I haven’t been serious. That’s why I had added the wink smiley. Maybe I should think about using an ‘irony tag’ for further comments? 😀
