Delicious and quick to make, this Japanese "shogayaki" ginger pork (生姜焼き) consists of thinly sliced pork cooked in a fragrant sauce made with fresh ginger. It's ready in less than 30 minutes and is perfect for lunch or a midweek dinner.
what you'll need:
» pork loin (thinly sliced)
» salt & pepper
» vegetable oil
» shishito peppers
» salad (optional)
» cooked rice
for the sauce:
» fresh ginger
» garlic cloves
» soy sauce
» dashi or water
Grate the ginger (with skin on), garlic cloves, onion and apple into a paste.
Mix the sauce
Pour the soy sauce, sake, mirin, dashi (or water) and honey into a small bowl and add the grated ingredients. Mix well.
Make incisions in the fatty parts of the pork to help prevent curling when cooked.
Coat the pork
Sprinkle both sides of each piece with salt and pepper, then coat in a thin layer of plain flour.
Place in the pan
Drizzle vegetable oil in a cold pan and place the pork inside. Try not to overlap the pork. Turn on medium heat.
Flip and add
Once the pork is browned on one side, flip it over and pour the shogayaki sauce around the pan. Fry until the pork is cooked through.
Once the pork is cooked, transfer it to serving plates and cook the shishito peppers in the leftover sauce for a few minutes.
Serve the shogayaki with salad, rice and miso soup (optional). Pour the leftover sauce over the pork, place the shishito peppers on the side and enjoy!
