Shallot Sauce Minced Pork Rice Lunch Box
This shallot sauce minced pork rice lunch box was made for my family member to bring to work. Two days ago, I have already made a big batch of shallot sauce pork for meal prep, so this lunch box was a breeze to put together.

Each lunch box contains brown rice, shallot sauce minced meat, a boiled egg and seasoned broccoli. This is a balanced and filling meal!
(1) Shallot Sauce Meat (Perfect for Meal Prep!)
I made a big pot of Taiwanese-style shallot sauce meat 2 days ago. The minced pork, cooked in an aromatic shallot sauce, is really flavourful and goes very well with rice. Leftovers keep well in the fridge too, making this dish ideal for meal prepping – I simply reheated the shallot sauce meat for our meals over the next few days. Meal prepping is very important to me for making lunch boxes since I work in the mornings, so I have limited time to make the lunch box for my family member to bring to work.
(2) Spicy Broccoli Banchan
This is a 10-minute recipe for Korean-style spicy broccoli banchan (side dish). It’s easy to make as there is no stir frying involved. It’s mildly spicy and goes well with the shallot sauce meat & rice.
To make this dish, steam or boil broccoli florets and cool them down in a colander under running tap water. Drain and place the broccoli in a food container.
Add shredded carrot, Korean chilli powder, soy sauce, sesame oil, chopped spring onions & toasted sesame seeds.
Mix well, season to taste and it’s done! It’s a really fuss-free and quick side dish to make.
(3) PUT TOGETHER
I’m using an Ikea 365+ 1-litre rectangular lunchbox with 3 inner microwave-friendly compartments. Fill the compartments with rice, shallot sauce meat (and a boiled egg if you like), along with the spicy broccoli side dish. This lunch box can keep at room temperature for half a day, but for maximum freshness, reheat the minced meat & rice if you have access to the fridge & microwave. Enjoy!
