Pork Simmered in Black Tea! Just Simmer and Marinate! An Ultra-Easy Refrigerator Stock Item

Just simmer a block of pork in black tea, and leave to marinate in sauce. Use the pork in salads or on ramen noodles.

Ingredients: 1 block of pork

Pork block
1 block
Black tea bags
2
Marinade
○Soy sauce
50 ml
○Sake
50 ml
○Mirin
50 ml
○Vinegar
50 ml
○Sugar
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Bring plenty of water to a boil in a large pot. Add the tea bags and the block of pork, and simmer for 40 minutes to an hour.
2. Put all the ○ ingredients into a separate pot and bring to a boil. If you don't like a sour taste, use less vinegar.
3. Marinate the tea-simmered pork in the pot you made the sauce in (or you can marinate in a bowl or a plastic container).
4. Slice the pork just before eating. Serve with a little of the sauce spooned over, and done!
5. If you marinate hard boiled eggs (cooked from water for 12 minutes) with the pork, they turn into ajitama (flavored eggs) and are delicious.
