2. Seasoning ingredients: Mix the soy sauce, oyster sauce, mirin, and mayonnaise well, and set aside.
3. Heat a small amount of vegetable oil in a frying pan. Stir-fry the pork with salt and pepper. When it's almost cooked through, add the atsuage, and cook through. Add the nagaimo yam, and seasoning ingredients at the end, briefly stir, and you're done.
