Stroganoff & Gyu Asupara Maki Bento

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s getting harder and harder to get up early in the morning. Personally, I haven’t been preparing bento as often as I used to, but I still have a large backlog of bento lunches to post so expect them to keep on going.

Bento with Stroganoff and Gyu Asupara Maki

2 September 2008 • Bento #218

This particular lunch has rice, my version of a very fast beef stroganoff, gyu asupara maki and some baby potatoes sautéed in butter. The beef stroganoff is a very quick dish to put together. You simply stir-fry the beef and mushrooms quickly in butter and onions, before topping it with sour cream. Because the beef is sliced in thin strips, it takes only a few minutes to cook.

On the side is the gyu asupara maki. It’s something that requires a bit more preparation but because I rolled them up the night before, it only took a quick sear and glazing to cook.

Lastly, the potatoes were quickly baked in the microwave, then sautéed in a little butter to add some flavor. Not the quickest lunch to put together, but I like how many good things were in it. With a side of rice, it’s definitely filling and satisfying.

    That looks really good! I’ll have to try the asparagus rolls. Another take on beef stroganoff is to use chicken instead. My boyfriend absolutely loves it!

    But food is your friend! NOM!

    Time to chow 😀

    Do you use whole chicken or chicken chunks? I’ve tried it with chicken chunks too and I agree it’s interesting. But since you brought it up, now I wonder if cut chicken (like wings and other parts) will work as well.

    Thanks, it was 😀

    I use chicken breasts cut into strips or chunks. I’m sure it would work with other parts too. Still on the bone maybe? Hmm…
