Meat Miso

Meat Miso

Meat miso can be used in many dishes, so it's really handy if you make a large batch and stock in the refrigerator.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Ground pork (from a lean cut)
300 g
Finely chopped ginger
1 piece
★ Doubanjiang
1/2 teaspoon
3-4 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
★Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
★ Chinese soup stock
1/2 teaspoon
1/2 to 1 tablespoon
Sesame oil
to taste
Green onion or scallion
10 cm


1. Stir fry the finely chopped ginger in sesame oil in a frying pan. Add the tianmianjiang and stir fry a little, then add the ground pork and stir fry until the color changes.
2. Add the ★ ingredients and stir fry well. Add a little sugar (optional). Finally, add the finely chopped green onion and stir-fry briefly.
3. This is a lightly-flavored meat miso that hasn't been thickened with katakuriko. If you want to make it thicker, pour in a katakuriko slurry.
4. For homemade tianmianjiang, see Recipe ID: 1714981. It's really handy since it can be used in many recipes.
5. I didn't add any garlic; if you would like to add it, use 1 clove worth that's finely chopped.
6. This meat miso is delicious with chopped bamboo shoots.
7. It's delicious if you double the amount of ginger. Don't use ground pork from a fatty cut, or the meat-miso will become greasy.
8. I didn't make this too salty, so you can enjoy it spooned over rice. Add more soy sauce or miso to taste.
