*Macrobiotic*Sweet & Sour Pork Style Stir-fry♪

I used Kurumabu instead of pork for this sweet & sour pork style dish. My husband loves meat, but even he said 'This is tasty! It must be pork!' when he ate this.♪

Ingredients: 4 servings

Kurumabu (wheel-shaped fu, dried wheat gluten)
Green peppers
3 tablespoons
○Japanese dashi stock
150 ml
○Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
2 tablespoons
2 teaspoons
as needed


1. Soak the kurumabu in water to rehydrate. Mix together ○ seasonings.
2. Cut the vegetables into bite sizes. Pour a small amount of water into a frying pan. Steam all of the vegetables, except the green pepper. ※At this point you don't need to cook the vegetables through.
3. After the kurumabu are rehydrated cut into bite sizes. Coat them with katakuriko (not listed) and fry both sides in a generous amount of oil until crispy. Take them out and set aside.
4. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and stir fry the steamed vegetables and green pepper. Add the kurumabu and fry until cooked through. Pour in the mixed seasonings and cook until the sauce thickens.
