Easy Miso-Katsu Rice Bowl

Easy Miso-Katsu Rice Bowl

This is my family's easy miso sauce recipe. The red miso and rice is a good combination.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Pork loin
2
○Flour
to coat the pork
○Eggs
to coat the pork
○Fresh panko
to coat the pork
Red miso
5 tablespoons
▽ Sake
100 ml
▽Sugar (demerara sugar is best)
5 tablespoons
Japanese leek
to your liking
Cabbage
to your liking
Japanese mustard
to your liking
Ground sesame seeds
to your liking

Steps

1. Combine the red miso, sake and sugar in a small sauce pan. Heat the sauce over low heat to evaporate the alcohol. Stir well until the sauce takes on a glossy sheen. (If you think the miso is too strong, add dashi stock to thin the sauce.)
2. Coat the pork in the order of flour, egg and panko. Deep-fry the pork until crispy.
3. Put the hot white rice in a bowl (spoon a little miso sauce over) and place the cabbage, pork cutlets, miso sauce, ground sesame seeds, green onions and Japanese mustard on top of the rice. Done!
