5-day roast pork butt

I tried this 5-day roast pork butt a couple of times now from a shop we have in the area called Co-Op.

I like how there aren't many ingredients involved...just pork, shoyu, sugar, mirin, honey, ginger, mizuame (rice malt syrup), thickener & oil.

(sorry, forgot to note that it takes 5 days to make when I first posted this)

Tastes like char siu without the food coloring.

They don't always have this, nor do I always shop here, but when I do go there, I try to pick it up.

It comes with a packet of sauce.

To eat it, I usually put some rice in a bowl, then I heat up the meat with some veggies, add an egg and then drizzle the sauce over everything.

Super comforting flavors.

What have you been enjoying lately?

ok Kat, help me out here because I can't figure out the 5-day name -- is it because it's marinated for 5 days or it's supposed to last 5 days?

The meat looks interesting, but it was the egg that made me go, "WOW!" LOL!!
