Ginger Pork (Shogayaki) Recipe
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Yield: Serves 2
  • 1/2 lb. thinly-sliced pork loin (I use sukiyaki meat)
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 inch ginger (about 1 tsp.)
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. oil
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped
  • Seasonings
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce or tamari 
  • 2 Tbsp. mirin
  • 2 Tbsp. sake
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  1. In a small bowl, grate onion, garlic and ginger.
  2. Add the seasonings. We like our ginger pork to be a little bit sweeter, so we add 1 tsp. sugar (this is optional).
  3. Season the meat with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large non-stick frying pan, heat oil on medium-high heat. Put the meat in a single layer (cook in batches). Flip the meat when the bottom side is golden brown. If the meat is very thin like mine, cook time is very short. Make sure you don’ overcook the pork or else it gets harder (but also be careful not to undercook).
  5. When the meat is cooked through, add the seasonings and chopped scallion. Serve immediately.
