  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons sake

  • 2 tablespoons mirin

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root

  • 1 pound thinly sliced pork loin

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Mix together soy sauce, sake, mirin, and ginger in a large bowl until combined. Add sliced pork; stir to coat. Cover the bowl and marinate for about 1 hour.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Sauté pork in hot oil until browned and cooked through; discard marinade. An instant-read thermometer inserted into pork should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).


Do not sauté the pork on low or medium heat, as the juices will not cook fast enough to get a crispy texture.
