Ingredients (Serves 4)
*1 carrot (large)
*100g thinly sliced pork belly
*1 cup / 200 ml dashi stock
*2 tbsp soy sauce
*2 tbsp sugar
*2 tbsp mirin sweet cooking sake

1 Combine the dashi stock, sugar, soy sauce and mirin in a pan, and bring the ingredients to a boil.

2 Spread the pork piece by piece in the pan so that it'll look esthetically pleasing when it's served.

3 Add the carrot, and place the pork on top.

4 When it comes to a boil, put a drop-lid over the ingredients simmer for about 10 minutes until the broth has reduced. Make sure to baste the pork several times while it's cooking to keep it moist.

5 Turn off the heat, and let the pot stand for a while to allow the ingredients to absorb the seasoning.
