Ginger Pork Shogayaki

Ingredients

500g thin pork belly 

½ onion, thinly sliced 

Sauce 

15g ginger 

50g onion 

4 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp mirin 

2 tbsp sake 

1 tbsp sugar 

¼ cup water 

Directions

  1. Blend the sauce. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat on high and drizzle in a little neutral oil.
  3. Add the pork belly to the skillet and cook until the pork takes on color.
  4. Remove some of the excess fat by absorbing it with a kitchen towel.
  5. If you prefer softer and tender shogayaki, add the sauce when the pork has slightly cooked. If you prefer having more of a bite, cook the pork until golden brown, and then add the sauce.
  6. Simmer on low heat until the sauce has reduced down. If the sauce is reduced too much, feel free to add more water.
  7. Enjoy with thinly sliced cabbage and rice!
