Chilled Shabu Salad With Tender Pork Offcuts

Chilled Shabu Salad With Tender Pork Offcuts

Even though it's pork offcuts, if you marinate with sake, sugar, and salt just like you would with "Salty Chicken" (Recipe ID: 1361151), they will be soft even when chilled.

400 g
1 tablespoon

Vegetable oil
as needed

1. [Make the Sauce] ① Peel the skin and grate the daikon radish. Drain the moisture.
2. ② Add sugar, granulated dashi soup stock, and water to a heat-resistant dish. Microwave at 600W for 40~50 seconds.
3. ③ Add soy sauce, mirin, honey, lemon juice, and vinegar to Step 2. Then add the grated daikon from Step 1 and mix together.
4. [Prepare the vegetables] Thinly slice the eggplant vertically and cook both sides in a frying pan coated with vegetable oil. Wash the lettuce and tear into pieces.
5. [Pork Preparation] Cut the pork offcuts into pieces. Rub in the sake, sugar, and salt in that order.
6. Fill a pot with water and turn on the heat. When it begins to boil, turn the heat to low. Spread out the pieces of meat from Step 5 and add to the pot one by one.
7. Stir the meat. Once the color changes, take the meat out and put into a bowl of water. Change the water, let the meat cool, then drain the water in a colander.
8. ※If you prefer the meat chilled, cool by putting the meat in ice water and then drain.
9. Spread out the lettuce and eggplant on a plate, top with the meat, and pour on the sauce.

Story Behind this Recipe

When I chill the meat from shabu shabu, it always becomes hard, so I tried preparing the meat like I prepare chicken breasts, and it came out very soft.
