DIRECTIONS

  • Salad:
  • Thinly slice all, and put in the fridge while working on the pork.
  • To serve, add tomato if desired. Dressing is very optional - there is SO much flavor. A bit of Japanese-style mayo adds a nice touch.
  • Ginger Pork:
  • Fry pork slices in 1T vegetable oil until done and browned on both sides.
  • While frying the pork, combine the remaining ingredients to make the sauce.
  • When the pork is done, add the sauce, heat just a bit more and serve (best with rice and miso soup!).
