Miso Pork

Miso Pork

Just marinate pork in miso and pan fry. This easy dish really whets your appetite!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Pork (whichever cut you like, I recommend pork roast in a block)
about 300 g
○Miso
2 tablespoons
○Sake
1 tablespoon
○Sugar
2 teaspoons
○Soy sauce
2 teaspoons
○Mirin
2 teaspoons
○Sesame oil
2 teaspoons
○Grated garlic
about 1 teaspoon or so to taste
Yuzu pepper paste
to taste
Shredded cabbage
as much as you like

Steps

1. Combine the ○ ingredients (Everyone uses a different type of miso, so taste and adjust the amount. It's best if it's on the salty side).
2. I used a block of pork loin this time. Cut into 1cm slices. If you're using thinly sliced pork, adjust the marinating time.
3. Wrap the pork slices in plastic wrap and smear the combined miso paste. Wrap it up and put in a plastic bag. Leave for at least 30 minutes.
4. Pan fry the marinated pork on both sides, taking care not to let it burn. (Miso does burn easily so watch it carefully.) You can cook the meat on a grill too.
5. It goes so well with white rice so I served it all on one plate. It's delicious with yuzu pepper paste if you like it.
6. Here I added butter to the pan after taking out the meat, sauteed the shredded cabbage and served it on the side. The miso and butter is so fragrant and makes it easy to eat lots of cabbage.

Story Behind this Recipe

I often marinate salmon in miso, but it's also delicious with pork or other meats (chicken, mackerel) too.
