5 Minutes! Plump Ginger Pork in Sauce

5 Minutes! Plump Ginger Pork in Sauce

This is my golden ratio for a sauce that goes well with rice Skipping the marinade process keeps this simple, yet it's soft and delicious!! Great for making bento lunch boxes during busy mornings.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Thinly sliced pork loin
6 slices (about 200 g)
★Soy sauce, sugar, sake
2 tablespoons each
★Grated ginger
1.5 teaspoons
Sesame oil (or vegetable oil)
0.5 tablespoons
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Cake flour
2 tablespoons


1. Combine the ★ ingredients. Lightly salt and pepper both sides of the pork, then cover with a thin coating of cake flour.
2. Add the oil to a frying pan heated on medium heat, then add the pork. Once one side has browned, flip to lightly brown both sides.
3. Pour the ★ sauce over the meat and shake the pan to mix the sauce with the meat. Do this step quickly and be careful not to burn it. It's ready!
4. It's still soft even when eaten cold, and goes well with rice, so I recommend this as a bento lunch box item.

Story Behind this Recipe

My family loves shogayaki (ginger pork), so I thought of a recipe that could be made quickly and would stay soft and delicious even when chilled.
