“Simple and delicious, though the optional salad does take some time to prep the veggies. Keep in mind that the 2 servings are assuming that you are serving with rice and miso soup.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Salad
  • 18 head of cabbage
  • 12 green onion, Japanese negi (negi in Japanese = green onion = huge, or you could fake it with one American one if necessary)
  • 12 of a japanese cucumber (maybe 1/4 of American size)
  • 2 shiso leaves (see pic, Google it, check your Asian market, there's no subsititute for that flavor)
  • Ginger Pork
  • 200 g sliced pork (about half a pound, about 6 slices)
  • 1 tablespoon mirin
  • 1 tablespoon cooking sake
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ginger, grated


  1. Salad:
  2. Thinly slice all, and put in the fridge while working on the pork.
  3. To serve, add tomato if desired. Dressing is very optional - there is SO much flavor. A bit of Japanese-style mayo adds a nice touch.
  4. Ginger Pork:
  5. Fry pork slices in 1T vegetable oil until done and browned on both sides.
  6. While frying the pork, combine the remaining ingredients to make the sauce.
  7. When the pork is done, add the sauce, heat just a bit more and serve (best with rice and miso soup!).
