This is a wonderful dish that goes really well with hot steamed rice. It's also very quick and easy.

Very easy and tasty meal. My 2 year old son loved it! I will definitely make it again but next time will use a bit less miso paste and a bit more water--the sauce was a little too pasty for me. Read More

Taste like miso with pork. The miso accented the stench of pork actually which is not good at all. I still ate it though. Read More

Super delicious and fairly easy. Just prep everything and go. The only problem I have with it is that it doesn't keep very well. Amazing while fresh though. Read More

So easy and delicious. LI didn't have ground meat but want to use tofu. So I cooked it with some shrimps and peeled edamame - even my picky 2.5 years old Loves it too. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I made this exactly as stated except I used 3/4 lb of ground pork. This has way too much miso. I kept adding water to tone down the taste. It ended up tasting almost like miso soup with ground pork but not as good as miso soup. Read More

My 2nd time making this. Very simple but delicious recipe that my husband and 8 year old love. I used 1.5lbs of pork and doubled the rest of the recipe. Also added some seaweed at the end along with the green onions. Read More
