Cut the pork belly slices in half. Combine the ingredients marked with an 〇 and set aside.
If the shiso leaves are small, use 2, if they're big, cut in half. Place on a slice of pork belly, leaving a gap on the far side.
Roll up tightly, tugging hard at the end. Line up on a plate with the seams down. The rolls will be cooked with the seam side down first!
Coat the rolls with katakuriko. Heat oil in a pan and start cooking the rolls over low-medium heat. Brown all sides, then turn off the heat and add the 〇 ingredients. Turn the heat back on, simmer to reduce the sauce and coat the rolls. It's done!
Story Behind this Recipe
I harvested shiso leaves from my garden. I thought up this recipe for an easy lunch.
Roll the shiso and pork rolls tightly. If you cover the pan with a lid and cook the rolls through before adding the 〇 ingredients, it's easier to coat them with the sauce.
