Ginger Pork and Fried Egg Donburi01

This simple rice dish is full of nutrients and flavours that your family will love.

As for my hubby, the fried egg was the highlight. For myself, the sauce was what I’d exactly like to go with the steamed rice. You don’t need to worry anyone will overeat as it’s served in a bowl.

Once you get all the ingredients ready. You only need a pan. Saute veggies, then cook the pork followed by adding the seasonings. No worries, I won't forget my husband's fried eggs.

  • This time I used the thinly sliced pork for shabu shabu (hot pot) sold at a Korean shop nearby. It’s very handy.
  • Or you can refer to the previous recipe of Japanese ginger pork to make your own thinly sliced pork, in method 3.


  1. My teens would love to make this! I had to look up what capsicum was...sweet green pepper

  2. That's a bowl of comfort and deliciousness, Christine.

  3. I think you meant to write pork in this sentence...Saute veggies, then cook the beef

    This is another triumph for your archive. Your recipes are so nice! Glad that there is a little fat on the pork, as that is where a lot of flavor is. Thank you. Dorothy
