Garita Cafeteria's Charsiu (Stewed Pork)

Garita Cafeteria's Charsiu (Stewed Pork)

Garita Cafeteria's (a cooking/eating TV show) very own Garita made this on his show.


Pork block
1 roast
1 piece
Japanese leek
Soy sauce
150 ml
150 ml
150 ml
For preparation:
1 clove
2 tablespoons
1-1 1/2 tablespoons


1. Tie the pork block with kitchen twine if it is not already tied up. Slice the ginger. Thickly slice the Japanese leeks, or slice diagonally. Grate the garlic.
2. Lightly rub the meat with the sake for prep to remove the odor, and rub in the sugar. Then, rub in the garlic, and the prep work is done.
3. Heat lard in a stain pot or Dutch oven, and cook the meat on both sides, add soy sauce, sake, mirin, Japanese leeks, and ginger into the pot, cover with a lid, and stew for 30 minutes.
4. The meat was not fully submerged in the sauce, so I flipped it over several times.

Story Behind this Recipe

This looked delicious from the the "Garita Cafeteria" show, so I wanted to try and make it; the ingredient amounts for the preparation etc. were not listed, so I estimated the amounts and made this.
