Bento recipes, Sandwich recipes-Niku-jyaga Croissant Sandwich

Here’s another arrangement of our favorite dish “Niku Jyaga”. Since it has concentrated flavor soaked in potato, it can go very well with not just steamed rice, also many kinds of carb including bread. We usually cook this dish very carefully so the potato won’t get dissolved and turning into mushy. But this time you don’t have to bother worrying about how the potato being cooked. You just cook till mash-potato-like texture. And then just simply fill in your favorite bread! This time I used croissant. With its flaky texture and buttery flavor, you can experience super delicious wa-fu sandwich! It’s very suitable for picnic. If I were still in Canada, I would definitely make a bunch of this and take them to English Bay!! ; )
