      Made this for tonight's dinner. We enjoyed this recipe very much. A bit sweeter than another recipe I had been using but equally as delicious. Thanks for sharing!

      I used 1/2 c. dashi and 1/2 c. water because I know I don't like the dashi at full strength. I used 6 tbsp of soy and 4 of sugar, and 3 of mirin. I also added 2 tbsp of corn starch so the sauce would thicken more. I also sauteed white onion slivers under the pork, and added some sliced green onion to the top. It was amazing, and tastes like the sauce on my favorite restaurant's donburi. Yum.
