For those simply expecting a quick snack and drink depot, 7-Eleven in Japan can often catch quite a few off guard with the surprising quality of its actual meals. From their bevy of tasty sandwiches to their wide range of curries, you can find a lot of ready-to-eat grub that goes beyond the stereotype one may have of a convenience store.

For 7-Eleven in particular, their in-house "Seven Premium Gold" brand of meals is promoted as their top of the line offering that's ready to eat, but also suggested for home cooking. The official Twitter account of Seven Premium Gold occasionally gives recommendations for the latter, and their latest has become a big hit with foodies online: Stewed Diced Pork Butter Mixed Rice!

The recipe is a take on takikomi-gohan, a Japanese mixed rice dish essentially made by throwing in meat and veggies in with your rice in a rice cooker. This particular recipe, which 7-Eleven describes as a "forbidden flavor", calls for use of their Seven Premium Gold Stewed Diced Pork, which is a package of thick and juicy soy-sauce stewed pork chunks.

One look will have you knowing why people are talking about it:

The rich and saucy dish has spread quickly on Twitter, and has received rave reviews such as "all of mankind should try this" and "it's genius", with many impressed such a gourmet dish can be built around some convenience store pork. To make it, you just need a few key ingredients and a rice cooker:

1. Rinse one cup of rice, pour in 180ml of water, and let it sit for 30 minutes.

2. Add the Seven Premium Gold Stewed Diced Pork, and one teaspoon of garlic.

3. Cook on normal mode.

4. When it's finished cooking, stir in 5g (really, as much as you like) of butter and salt and pepper to taste.

5. After serving in a bowl, add another slab of butter on top and drizzle it with soy sauce.
