Marinate the pork with the ingredients marked ●. Cut the onion, green pepper and red pepper into 1.5 cm squares. Blanch the bamboo shoot and slice it into bite-sized pieces.
Coat the pork in the katakuriko and fry. Then, briefly fry the vegetables in the same pan.
Put the seasoning ingredients and water marked ★ into the frying pan, and bring it to the boil. Dissolve the katakuriko with the water to make a slurry, and add to the pan to thicken the sauce.
Add the pork and the vegetables and mix well. Drizzle in the sesame oil to finish.
Story Behind this Recipe
This is a standard dish in my house. We've been making it for years.
Change the amounts of vegetables as you like. Adjust the amounts of ketchup and sugar to your taste. If you are counting calories, you can boil the vegetables in Step 2 instead of frying them. Add a little oil when boiling them. You can use carrot instead of red pepper.
