Japanese Ginger Pork (Shogayaki)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by WaterMelon

Quick and easy dish, and it's delicious! It's important to use mirin as sherry/other wine does not give the authentic taste of shogayaki. Serve it with steamed cabbage/other vegetables and japanese rice for a yummy meal! You can substitute pork with sliced beef too.

Loved this recipe! I used 4 boneless pork chops which was more like 1.4 lbs of meat so I added an extra shake of soy and mirin, then added 1 tbsp of hoisin sauce (couldn't resist I love that stuff!). Sauted this with onion, baby carrots and snow peas over sticky rice and I was in heaven! I'm sure I butchered some authentic technique or spice combination but my tastebuds didn't complain! Thanks for this simple and delicious recipe!
