Japanese ginger pork is very popular and is fast to make at home.

The pork is quite savory and has a hint of ginger.

I love to jazz up this recipe with many varieties of vegetables.

This time, I'm using tomatoes in my Japanese pork ginger to make it even more flavorful.

When summer is here, I don't really like to eat heavy meals.

With tomatoes and ginger, you can definitely finish the pork ginger in minutes because the overall taste is refreshing.

I sometimes eat this on top of rice and make it into a rice bowl.




<Yield> 2 servings

<Prep time> 5 minutes

<Cook time> 7 minutes


7 oz (200g) thinly sliced pork

¼ onion

1 large tomato


2 tablespoons Soy sauce

2 tablespoons Mirin

2 tablespoons rice wine

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon grated ginger and garlic

½ teaspoon black pepper

<Optional toppings>

Fresh herbs

shredded cabbage


1. Slice the onion thinly. Cut the tomato into wedges. Mix all the seasonings listed above.

2. Heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add in the pork and then cook for 3 minutes or until the pork is nice and browned on the bottom. Add in the onions and tomatoes. Continue to cook until the onions have begun to sweat. Drizzle on the mixed seasonings and continue to cook away for about 2 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.

3. Make a bed of shredded cabbage on a plate and transfer the pork on top of it. Sprinkle with freshly crushed black pepper. Now it's ready to be enjoyed.

<Miwa’s tips>

・You can swap pork for firm tofu.

・Adjust the taste with salt and pepper if needed.

・I'm using a shabu shabu type cut for my pork. If you are using a thicker one, make sure to cook them longer.

<Recommended side dish>

<Storage time>

Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.
