A surprisingly healthy ginger pork dish served with shredded cabbage. The addition of honey and stir-fried onions gives a nice hint of sweetness that goes extremely well with a bowl of hot rice!

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 160 g pork leg (thinly sliced; lean)
  • 1/2 onion (100 g)
  • 60 g cabbage (shredded)
  • [Marinade]

    • 2 tbsp sake
    • 1 tbsp soy sauce
    • 1/2 tsp honey
    • 10 g ginger (grated)

Directions

1

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

2

Mix together the ingredients for the [Marinade].

3

Place the pork in a bowl with the [Marinade]. Massage the [Marinade] into the pork, then let rest at room temperature for 5 minutes.

4

Place a frying pan over medium heat. Add the pork and [Marinade] on one side, and add the onions on the other side. Cook over medium-high heat while separating the pork strips. Once the pork starts to change color, mix together with the onions and stir-fry until most of the liquid cooks off.

5

Plate up and serve with shredded cabbage.
