1. Cut the carrot, enoki mushrooms, and mizuna greens to about the same length. Lightly salt the carrot after cutting it up, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 3 minutes at 500 W.
2. Overlap 2 slices of pork belly to make a belt, put the vegetables on one edge, and roll up tightly.

4. Coat with katakuriko.
5. Put a generous amount (about 3 tablespoons) of oil in a pan, and add the pork rolls from Step 4. Brown over medium-low heat while turning.
6. When the rolls are lightly browned, add the sake, mirin, and soy sauce in that order, and coat each roll in the sauce by turning them in the pan.
7. When the rolls are shiny and a nice color, slice diagonally and they're done.
