Sizzling pork with Ginger sauce / Pork shogayaki

When I cooked this dish, it is a Chinese food recipe and  upon share it with my friend, she told me that it taste like Japanese Pork Shogayaki.

Being curios I did some small research to compare the recipe and  I found that the ingredients are mostly the same with some  minor difference :

  • The Chinese style is using the rice wine while the Japanese recipe is using sake, actually I do believe that it should taste the same as sake is also made from rice.
  • The Chinese style is chopping the ginger and garlic while in Japanese recipes both garlic and ginger are grated.
  • The Japanese style have extra seasoning : Mirin, and the Chinese don’t.
  • The Japanese style served the pork with Cabbage salad and Okras as side dishes while the Chinese is just the pork.

Nevertheless be it Chinese style or Japanese style, I believe both will taste good. So it is up to you to decide on how shall you want to have your pork cooked 🙂

Ingredients :

  • 250 gr pork loin slices  – choose those with little fat for juicier taste ( slice about 0.5cm thick )
  • Sauce ( mix all in a bowl and stir until sugar dissolved)
  • 1 table spoon Soya sauce/ Shoyu
  • 1 table spoon Rice wine / Sake
  • 1 table spoon Mirin (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped/grated)
  • 1/2 table spoon chopped/grated ginger
  • 1/2 table spoon sugar

Others :

  • Little flour for dusting the pork
  • Some pepper
  • some sesame oil for cooking

Steps :

  1. Season the pork with some pepper, dust the pork with little flour.
  2. Heat the pan with sesame oil over medium heat. grill the pork until colors changes, flip to the other side.
  3. Pour in the sauce and stir until sauce sizzled and slightly thicken.
  4. Separate the pork and place them  on plate and pour the remaining ginger sauce.
