Pasta with Pork and Burdock Root

Pasta with Pork and Burdock Root

Burdock root pasta: It sounds like an odd combination, but it was delicious. It's addictive.

Ingredients: 2 servings

150 g
Burdock root
250 g
1 tablespoon
● Sugar
5 teaspoons
● Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
● Sake
1 tablespoon
Salt (for salting the boiling water)
as needed
Shredded nori seaweed
as much as you like
Snow peas


1. Thinly slice the burdock root diagonally without peeling the skin. No need to soak in water either. Cut pork into bite-size pieces.
2. In a pan, cook the burdock root and pork with oil and add ● marked ingredients. Cook until the burdock root is soft and turn off the heat.
3. Cook the pasta. (This time, I cut the snow peas and boiled it with the pasta 2 minutes before the pasta is done).
4. Heat up the pork/burdock and add the pasta and mayonnaise and toss to combine. Sprinkle with shredded nori and done!
