One way of doing Soboro is like this:

To know more about the history, culture and context of this dish have a look here. Maki is half Japanese, so she would know more about this than me – her recipes always have cultural snippets and she explains the techniques well. She also posted a soboro recipe there.

My quick and dirty version of soboro, for bentos and quick dinners.

  • a bit of oil (seasme is better, but olive is okay)
  • 1 chopped garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp  ginger powder
  • and either a can of tuna or an equivalent amount of another protein.
  • white sesame seeds
  • and optional ingredients of choice
  1. Brown garlic in oil, remove garlic.
  2. Add soysauce and ginger powder.
  3. At this point you can add mirin, chili paste or something else you like.
  4. Cook on a medium flame until protein is cooked.
  5. Garnish with white sesame seeds
