Ginger Pork Shogayaki
500g thin pork belly
½ onion, thinly sliced
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp mirin
2 tbsp sake
1 tbsp sugar
¼ cup water
- Blend the sauce. Set aside.
- In a large skillet, heat on high and drizzle in a little neutral oil.
- Add the pork belly to the skillet and cook until the pork takes on color.
- Remove some of the excess fat by absorbing it with a kitchen towel.
- 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.
- Simmer on low heat until the sauce has reduced down. If the sauce is reduced too much, feel free to add more water.
- Enjoy with thinly sliced cabbage and rice!
