Sweet & Salty Pork and Shimeji Mushrooms

Sweet & Salty Pork and Shimeji Mushrooms

Try this dish if you're having trouble coming up with a dinner entrée. Everyone in my family scrambles for this dish at the dining table (haha).

Ingredients: 2 servings

Thinly sliced and chopped pork scraps
200 g
Shimeji mushrooms
1 packet
Seasoning Ingredients:
★Soy sauce, sugar, mirin
2 tablespoons each
2 1/2 tablespoons
★Grated ginger (can be ready-made in a tube)
1/2 teaspoon
For finishing:
White sesame seeds
to taste


1. Remove the base from the shimeji mushrooms and shred them apart. Add all of the ★ ingredients to a small pot and heat.
2. Once boiling, add the pork and shimeji. Lower the heat down to low-medium, cover with a lid, and simmer until the liquid evaporates.
3. Sprinkle with white sesame seeds to finish. If you put it on rice to make a rice bowl, it will be really tasty, so please try that too.
4. If you want to make a lot, it will taste best if you double the seasoning ingredients. Use 300 g of meat, 1 pack of shimeji, and 1 onion.

Story Behind this Recipe

I came up with this recipe for my husband who likes richly flavored meals.
My husband has a really busy job and rarely gets time to eat 3 meals a day, so I wanted to make him something filling that could be topped on rice and made in a short time.
