DIRECTIONS

  • If you want your pork roast to look pretty, tie it with kitchen twine, but this isn't necessary.
  • Place umeboshi, leek tops, and ginger in a big pot with enough water to cover the pork and bring to a boil. Lower the pork into the boiling water carefully, cover, and lower the heat to a simmer. Poach for 90 minutes. Remove cover and let cool in the liquid a bit.
  • Meanwhile, combine marinade ingredients in a small pan and bring to a boil. Let cool.
  • Put the marinade and the still warm, drained pork into a plastic bag. Close tightly, and place in a bowl to catch any leaks. Let marinate, turning every so often, for about an hour or more. Store in the refrigerator until cold.
  • This can be stored in the fridge for up to a week, or longer in the freezer. It can be eaten as slices, or used in place of char siu for steamed buns, or chopped and stirred into noodles.
