10 Minute Recipe! Rice in Ginger Broth

10 Minute Recipe! Rice in Ginger Broth

This delicious dish can be made in almost no time at all. It's great on cold days.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Thinly sliced pork
150 g
Japanese leek
1/2 of the white part
10 g
Vegetable oil
as needed
500 ml
Soup stock cubes
Usukuchi soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Warm cooked rice
as needed


1. Cut the pork into bite-sized pieces. Cut the Japanese leek into very thin, round slices and julienne the ginger.
2. Coat the bottom of a pot with vegetable oil, then add the ginger and pork, and cook over a medium heat. When the meat is cooked through, add the water and stock cube, and turn the heat up to high.
3. Once boiled, reduce the heat to low-medium and simmer the mixture for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally to dissolve the stock cube.
4. Add the light soy sauce and Japanese leek, and once it comes to a simmer it's done. Fill some bowls with cooked rice (I use white rice with brown rice mixed in), and pour over the piping-hot broth to finish.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was served rice in broth when invited to a friend's house for dinner. The combination was really amazing and delicious, so I decided to try and come up with something similar myself.
