Cut the pork into bite-size pieces. Peel the satoimo, cut them in half and boil. (You could also wrap them in plastic wrap, microwave, then peel.)
Heat some vegetable oil (not listed in the ingredients) in a frying pan and fry the pork, adding the sake, until the color of the meat has changed.
Put the satoimo from Step 1 into the pan from Step 2 Flavor using the ☆ ingredients and stir fry till browned and shiny. Finish by adding the sesame seeds (both kinds). Done!
When using the microwave to cook in Step 1, cook with the skin still intact at 500W for 3 minutes, turn them over and give them another 5 minutes. This may vary depending on the size of the satoimo.
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to serve the satoimo I like so much to my family using flavorings that were slightly different than usual.
- You may get away with not using any oil in the frying pan, because of the fat in the pork. (especially if you use a non-stick pan) - The viscous substance covering the satoimo is supposed to help lower your blood pressure and cholesterol, and even for helps to prevent senility by stimulating the brain, so don't wash too much of it off. - You can make the recipe more healthy by wiping off excess fat before adding the flavorings.
