Japanese Ginger Pork

Shogayaki is a typical Chinese inspired Japanese dish that involves ginger and pork. It's so easy to make because you just mix the sauces and throw all the ingredients into a ziplock bag. Mom would often make shogayaki to put into our bento boxes for Saturday Japanese School. This is one of those easy meals that is always a family favorite.

1 pound thinly sliced pork
2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
2 cloves grated fresh garlic
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsps mirin
1 tbsp sake
1 tbsp sesame oil
1. Mix soy sauce, mirin, sake, and grated ginger & garlic in a bowl and pour into a ziplock bag.
2. Marinate pork for 1 hour or more in the ziplock bag.
3. Heat sesame oil in a frying pan.
4. Stir-fry the pork slices on medium heat until cooked thoroughly.
5. Serve and eat!

You would get something that awesome for lunch at school? Did all the other kids hate you with their PB&J sandwiches. I know I would of been super jealous :)

Freshly grated ginger must be my favorite smell. I just love it. It looks like such a simple recipe and yet the final dish looks scrumptious.!

Prudy said...

That looks so easy and delicious. Did you just buy pork cutlets or did you cut it thin yourself? Let me know because I'd love to give this one a try.

maybelle's mom said...

oh, these look very good and I don't even like pork.

Sophie said...

Easy and pork?! Sounds like my kind of meal! Ginger has a way of really bringing life to a dish, it adds great warmth and flavor. I'm definitely holding on to this recipe :)>

Lina said...

prudy- I bought the meat already thinly sliced at the local Japanese market, but you could slice it yourself for similar results im sure. :)
