I like cooking. Here’s something I made recently (by “recently” I mean 15 minutes before writing this post). It’s a Japanese dish called “Buta no Shogayaki”, meaning literally “fried pork in ginger.” It’s a simple, tasty, surprisingly light dish. A student and I were sharing recipes this week, and she mentioned this, which I had previously eaten just once before (in a restaurant surrounded by salarymen on their lunch breaks). I remembered it was delicious, but I had never thought to make it myself. She shared the basics of the recipe with me, and it sounded pretty simple. I looked up a couple recipes tonight just to clarify the instructions I’d been given, and then produced a yummy, easy evening meal.
My student laid things out pretty clearly for me, but the below video from YouTube channel cookingwithdog really helped a lot. If you’d like to try to make this delicious meal, please watch the video below. It’s quick, easy, and fun to make. I ate mine over a little bit of white rice with a side of veggies (cabbage, carrots, and bean sprouts).
I highly recommend this dish. Give it a try! My own dinner mysteriously disappeared from my bowl in the act of preparing this post. With any luck, your efforts will be just as tasty. Enjoy!
