Sweet and Spicy Soboro don with Plenty of Zucchini


To eat as much of it as I could in the summer, I made a quick and easy soboro don. The recipe calls for less zucchini, but you can add as much as you like. I tend to add as much zucchini as I do ground meat. The gentle taste of zucchini and the sweet and spicy taste of soy sauce and sugar are addictive.
