Cut the pork slices into bite sizes. To prepare the vegetables: Peel, then cut the daikon, carrot, burdock root into rolling wedges by rotating the vegetables as you cut. Pre-boil the taro root but leave a slight crunch, and cut into bite sized pieces. Boil the konnyaku, and cut with a spoon into bite sized pieces as well. Chop the green onion finely.
Heat the saucepan, add a generous amount of sesame oil, and stir fry the pork. When the pork is cooked through, fry the daikon, carrot, burdock root, taro root, and konnyaku until all the ingredients have been coated with the oil.
Add Japanese soup stock (dashi) into the pot from Step 3. Simmer the vegetables while skimming foam off the surface until the vegetables are cooked through. Serve in a dish, and garnish with chopped green onion. If you'd like, sprinkle with ichimi or shichimi spice.
Story Behind this Recipe
This is the ultimate version I arrived at after many trials.
The key is to use a generous amount of sesame oil at the end. The flavour is greatly enhanced by it. Two kinds of miso are used in the recipe, but of course, just one kind is still fine. Adjust the strength and taste of miso to your liking. I recommend using a highly aromatic sesame oil.
