Ginger Pork (Shogayaki)


1/2 lb. thinly-sliced pork loin. (ask your butcher to thinly slice it for you. About as thin as a slice of thick bacon.)
1/2 onion
1 clove garlic
1 inch ginger (about 1 tsp.)
Freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbsp. oil
1 scallion, finely chopped


2 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. mirin
2 Tbsp. sake
1 tsp. Sugar (optional)


In a small bowl, grate onion, garlic and ginger.

Add the seasonings. We like our ginger pork to be a little bit sweeter, so we add 1 tsp. sugar (this is optional).

Season the meat with salt and pepper.

In a large non-stick frying pan, heat oil on medium-high heat. Put the meat in a single layer (cook in batches). Flip the meat when the bottom side is golden brown. If the meat is very thin like mine, cooking time is very short.

Make sure you don't overcook the pork or else it gets tough (but also be careful not to undercook).

When the meat is cooked through, add the seasonings and chopped scallion. Serve immediately.


To reduce sodium substitute the salt with your favorite salt substitute and use Low Sodium Soy Sauce instead of regular Soy Sauce.
