※The green part of a Japanese leek (if you have some)
As many as you like
Make as many hard-boiled eggs as you would like to serve with the pork.
Put the block of pork and the ※ ingredients into a pressure cooker and bring up to pressure. Cook under pressure for 15 minutes!
Bring the pressure down, add the boiled eggs and simmer to reduce the sauce. Leave to cool.
When the pork has cooled down, slice it, transfer on a serving plate with the boiled eggs and serve!
Simmer coarsely chopped pork and sliced onion in the leftover cooking liquid and pour over rice to make a pork rice bowl!
Use the leftover broth from the butadon from step 5, to make shiro-ae (a tofu dish), and julienned burdock root to make "kinpira"!
Story Behind this Recipe
Pork blocks were on sale so I made simmered pork in a pressure cooker.
I didn't tie the pork with twine, parboil, marinate, or brown it beforehand. I did none of those things, and I still got tender, delicious simmered pork with no problems. Please adjust the simmering time depending on your pressure cooker! I use a brand called Katsuryoku-gama from Asahi Kasei.
