Stir-Fried Pork with Shiso Leaves

Stir-Fried Pork with Shiso Leaves

The shiso leaves make this so refreshing. Enjoy this simply flavored dish. Stir-fry quickly, and this will be done in a flash! It's also tasty.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Pork (chopped or thinly sliced)
200 g
Onion (thinly sliced into crescent moon shapes)
Shiso leaves
20 to 30
Salt and pepper
To taste
Ponzu (optional)
roughly 1 tablespoon


1. Slice the onion into thin wedges and separate into individual pieces. If the pork is already chopped, then move on to the next step. If not, chop into large bite-sized pieces.
2. Chop the shiso leaves into strips of 2-3 mm. Soak in water, then drain.
3. Stir-fry the pork in a small amount of oil, then remove from the pan. Sauté the onion until translucent. Put the pork back in, turn the heat off, and mix in the shiso leaves. Dish it up.
4. It's tasty as-is, but I also recommend that you try it with ponzu sauce.

Story Behind this Recipe

My mother used to make this dish a lot. She didn't add onions, but I made this new variation to add lots of veggies.
