HE SAID: Good.
SHE SAID: Tasty.
We pretty much followed this recipe exact except we ran out of green onions. We both found it to be tasty, yet not too salty. We only had 1/2 a pound of pork left, so this wasn't quite enough for the two of us...it's a good thing we were making twice baked potatoes for the male half of this couple!
This marinade can also be used for fish, beef, chicken and we're sure on veggies. With a little tweaking, the marinade would probably make a nice miso salad dressing.
Serves 1 on protein only days or 2 on protein/veggie days
1/2 lb. pork chop loin (fat removed) or any lean pork
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 green onion (chopped into 2" pieces)
2 t. shoyu (soy sauce)
1 T. sake
2 t. sugar
2 T. miso paste (we used no MSG added)
2 t. mirin
1/4 t. sesame oil (optional)
Mix marinade ingredients together. Cut pork into 1" pieces or slices, place into a baggie, pour marinade in and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Spray your pan with a small bit of olive oil spray and fry pork over high heat for approx 5 minutes or until cooked. This dish can be grilled also.
