Story Behind this Recipe
I added some pork to a simple tossed side dish to turn it into a main dish.
My husband found this a little sour. Please adjust the amount of umeboshi paste and mentsuyu sauce while tasting. Tender cabbage tastes better if you cut it into big pieces. Add some sesame oil, as well as sesame seeds or shiso at the end to taste.
