Pan Fried, Salt and Ginger Flavored Pork and Mushroom

How about a light, salt-flavored ginger pork once in a while? Just mix all the ingredients together in a bowl and cook! It's easy but very hearty.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Thinly sliced coarsely chopped pork
150 g (shoulder, or whatever cut of pork you like)
Oyster mushrooms
1 pack
Shiitake mushrooms
1/2 small
20 g
1 tablespoon
◆Sesame oil
1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon
a small amount


1. Peel the onion and slice thinly. Shred the oyster mushrooms with your hands into easy to eat pieces. Cut off the hard part of the stems of the shiitake mushrooms and cut each into quarters.
2. Cut up the pork into easy to eat pieces.
3. Put all the ingredients (grate the ginger, skin and all) into a bowl and mix well with your hands. Leave for 5 to 10 minutes. (Prep the vegetables to serve on the side in the meantime.)
4. Heat a pan without oil. Add the pork mixture and pan fry over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until the pork and mushrooms are cooked through.
5. Transfer to serving plates, add vegetables on the side and it's done! Itadakimasu!

Story Behind this Recipe

Ginger pork is usually richly flavored with soy sauce, so I made a lighter salt-flavored version.
It may seem like there's more vegetables than meat on the plate... but in our family we always eat lots of veggies.
