Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 160 g fresh ham (thinly sliced/no fat)
  • [Marinade]

    • 2 tbsp sake
    • 1 tbsp soy sauce
    • 1/2 tsp honey
    • 10 g ginger (grated)
  • 1/2 onion (100 g)
  • 60 g cabbage (shredded)

Directions

1

Cut the pork into strips 5 cm wide. Thinly slice the onion and place it in a microwave-safe container, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for about 3 min at 600 W, or until softened.

2

Mix the ingredients for the marinade together.

3

Place the pork in a bowl and pour the marinade in. Massage the marinade into the pork and let rest at room temperature for 5 min.

4

Preheat a frying pan over medium heat and add the pork and marinade on the close half, and add the onion to the far half. Cook over medium-high while separating the pork strips. When the pork browns, mix it together with the onions and stir-fry until most of the liquid cooks off.

5

Serve on a plate with shredded cabbage.
