Story Behind this Recipe
A long time ago, I saw Kenichi Chen make this dish on TV and I took notes. I didn't write down the amounts, but after making it many times, I settled on this recipe. It's really popular at our house, and it disappears as soon as it's on the table.
The sauce can be prepared ahead of time. You only need a little pork, so I often make this right before pay day.
