King Oyster Mushroom and Pork Stir-fry with Miso, Mayonnaise and Ponzu

Light and tender pork and king oyster mushrooms are stir-fried with a combination of richly seasoned ingredients.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Thinly sliced pork shoulder
400 g
King oyster mushrooms
3 to 4 large
Onion (sliced)
1
Garlic (sliced)
1 clove
Coarsely ground black pepper
To taste
To pre-flavor the meat:
Sake
2 tablespoons
Katakuriko
2 tablespoons
Coarsely ground seasoned salt and pepper
to taste
Combined seasoning ingredients:
Ponzu (with kombu, yuzu citrus, etc.)
3 tablespoons
Miso
2 teaspoons
Sugar
2 teaspoons
Mayonnaise
2 teaspoons

Steps

1. Slice the garlic, onion, and king oyster mushrooms. Combine the seasoning ingredients (the mayonnaise doesn't have to be completely incorporated).
2. Cut the pork into easy to eat pieces. Mix it with the pre-flavoring ingredients, and rub in lightly.
3. Heat up a wok, add a generous amount of vegetable oil, and stir-fry the garlic until fragrant.
4. Add the pork, and stir fry quickly over medium heat while separating the pieces with cooking chopsticks until cooked through. Remove from the wok.
5. Add the onion and mushrooms to the pan and stir-fry.
6. When the mushrooms and onion are cooked through, add the meat in again.
7. Add the combined flavoring ingredients and stir fry quickly.
8. When the flavors are evenly distributed, it's done.
9. Transfer to a serving plate, add plenty of coarsely ground black pepper, and enjoy while piping hot!

Story Behind this Recipe

I put some thought into the combined flavoring ingredients to mask the raw flavor of the mushrooms.
