Delicious Yakuzen Medicinal Cuisine! Simple Juicy Sauteed Pork

The fruity and sweet sauce goes perfectly with the meat. It increases the richness, and helps prevent dehydration and colds. Eating tender, juicy pork in the winter is so good for you!


Block of pork meat (I used loin this time)
about 500~700g
Apple or Asian pear
1 piece
1 clove
The flavoring ingredients:
2 1/2 cups
3 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
2 1/2 tablespoons
Soy sauce
6 tablespoons


1. Stick the pork with a fork so that the flavor soaks in easily, tie it up with kitchen twine, and brown in a frying pan.
2. Finely chop the onions and apple/pear; grate the ginger and garlic, and add with the flavoring ingredients inside a pressure cooker.
3. Turn the heat on to the pressure cooker, bring to a boil, and cook over a high heat for 10 minutes. Cook for 10 minutes over low heat. Turn off the heat, and let sit for about 15 minutes.
4. Remove the lid, and boil down the juices. Cook over a low heat for about 15~20 minutes. Flip the meat over, and coat it in the sauce.
5. Cut the meat into your desired thickness, and pour the dressing over.
6. This is sun dried Satsuma Mandarin skin (a natural medicine made from peeled citrus skin). Add 1 large teabag's worth, add in Step 2, and it will not lie heavily on the stomach.
