Pork and eggplant are mixed with a spicy sesame soy sauce and lots of ichimi spice.
Cold shabu-shabu is something you want to eat on hot days. I wanted to eat it with a sauce that had a punch to it and came up with this recipe.
It depends on your taste, but I think the sauce needs a generous amount of ichimi spice. Don't put the pork slices in ice water to cool them after they're cooked, or the fat will harden.
