Rich and full of flavour - pork belly is slowly simmered in a sweet and savoury mixture of soy sauce, mirin, ginger, garlic and brown sugar. Serve it over a bowl of steaming rice for a meal worth waiting for!
It is best to use pork belly, but pork fillet will also work.
This was really good! My local Meijer did not have pork belly so I used a pork loin, but I followed the recipe and cooking directions exactly. Also could not find the Bonito flakes, so I used Oyster Sauce that I found in the asain section. (I read online that was a good substitute) The sauce was delicious!! Make sure to cut the meat into small pcs so that it can soak up as much sauce as possible. Served w/white rice and steamed broccoli, sugar snaps and baby carrots.

I live in Okinawa and this is spot on!! Not only does it taste great but I was really surprised at how easy it was! We sliced it thin and topped some soba soup with it .. excellent!! - 28 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
very authentic japanese recipe. We used Kurobuta Pork belly the flavor is so intense and great..Leftover sauce is good for Yakisoba or any type of Asian stir fry... or just mix it with plain steamed rice.... - 03 Jun 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
