Remove the base from the shimeji mushrooms and shred them apart. Add all of the ★ ingredients to a small pot and heat.
Once boiling, add the pork and shimeji. Lower the heat down to low-medium, cover with a lid, and simmer until the liquid evaporates.
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.
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.
After the liquid has evaporated, the meat will become tough, so don't take your eyes off the pot. Once the liquid lessens, remove from the heat. If you don't have shimeji mushrooms, onion will also taste delicious. If you like spicy foods, you can add a little bit of doubanjiang or sprinkle with cayenne pepper powder at the end to make it taste even better.
