GINGER PORK

Everyday Harumi
by Harumi Kurihara
This classic recipe is very easy to make, but it is also easy to do badly. Take care of the details and the dish will be outstanding. With very thin slices of pork, such as are used here, it is essential that they are cooked quickly at a high temperature, otherwise the dish will become watery. It is also important not to soak the pork in the soy sauce mixture for too long or the meat will become tough. I am sure this dish, with its wonderful combination of soy, mirin, ginger, and pork, will be popular with everyone who tries it.
Serves 4


Ingredients

    • 13 oz pork shoulder
    • 11½ oz bok choy
    • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
    • 1/3 cup soy sauce
    • 1/4 cup mirin
    • sunflower or vegetable oil, for frying
    • salt and pepper, to season


Directions

Briefly freeze the pork as this will make it easier to slice. Slice the pork as thinly as possible, then wrap the slices in plastic wrap and tenderize by hitting with a rolling pin.

Remove the plastic wrap. It is important to ensure that the pork is at room temperature before cooking.

Separate the white stem from the green leaf of the bok choy. Cut the stems lengthwise and the leaves in half.

Blend the soy sauce and mirin together, add the grated ginger, and mix to combine.

Put a little oil in a skillet over high heat. Stir in the bok choy stems then the leaves and stir-fry for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper and arrange on the plates that will be used for the pork. Dip the pork slices into the soy and ginger mixture and quickly brown in the hot skillet. Serve with the bok choy.
