Looks yummy (*^_^*). Today’s Japanese recipe from “Cooking With Dog” is buta no shoga-yaki (= pork sauté with ginger sauce). In Japan, buta no shoga-yaki is very popular regardless of age or gender. Tender pork with thick tasty sauce on hot steamed rice sounds like heaven to me XD! Also, buta no shoga-yaki teishoku (meal set) is a standard lunch menu for Japanese “salary-men”. It is a kind of the energy source driving the Japanese economy! 😮
OK! Let’s take a look at the Cooking With Dog video.

[Tips from JAPAN Style]
* Mirin can be cooking wine and sugar instead (1 tbsp mirin = 1 tbsp cooking wine + 1 teasp sugar)
* Shredded cabbage is kind of a must for buta no shoga-yaki, but okras are not necessary.
* Don’t forget to serve it with steamed rice ;D
Buta no shoga-yaki is not very traditional Japanese food but a home cooking menu, so it is not complicated at all! Maybe you can try it out tonight ^^
This is JAPAN Style!
