Steamed Chinese-style Lotus Root and Pork Slices

Steamed Chinese-style Lotus Root and Pork Slices

This goes great as a snack with beer! The tartness of tomatoes, the spiciness of doubanjiang spicy bean paste, and the sweetness of miso really go well together. I also love that you can make this in 7 minutes in the microwave.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Lotus root
15 cm
Sliced pork
Cherry tomatoes
●Red miso
1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon
0.5cm of the tube
0.5cm of the tube
●Soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon
●Sesame oil
1 teaspoon
Shiso leaf


1. Cut the meat into easy-to-eat sizes. Chop the cherry tomatoes. Mix in the ingredients labeled ●, lightly mix and let sit for about 10 minutes.
2. Peel the lotus root and cut in under 1cm slices. Line up on a heat-resistant dish.
3. Fill the meat from step one between the lotus root slices. Cover (at an angle so air can flow out) and microwave for 6 minutes at 600 W.
4. Check the inside and heat again for 1 more minute. Rip up the shiso leaves and scatter on top. It's done!
