RECIPE | Taste5 Bento Soboro Beef

Bento Soboro Beef

with Taste5 Vegetaraian

We love this deliciously simple Japanese Bento classic and its sweet and salty taste. The addition of Taste5 Vegetarian paste boosts the flavor with hints of garlic, ginger, miso and citrusy yuzu. Served with a bowl of fluffy white rice and garnished with scallions, we feel confident this will become an easy, tasty magical go to for weeknights.

We love this dish with Momofuku's Soy Sauce Eggs [ Recipe on Food52 ]
