  1. In a large bowl, mix together the ginger, soy sauce, sake and mirin. Add the sliced pork, cover, and marinate for about 1 hour.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet or wok over high heat. Add the pork, and fry until brown. The pork should have a dark crispy look to it. Do not cook on low or medium heat, as the juices will not cook fast enough to get a crispy texture. Discard leftover marinade.

Hubby and I both loved this recipes. I did , however, use probably 2x of the ginger it called for. Be sure to use real fresh ginger root. I grated mine. It goes very well with steamed rice, ...

The pork was so tender! It absolutely needed double the amount of ginger and a little more soy. I served mine over a little bit of sticky rice and lots of shredded cabbage as suggested. Very nic...

Definitely was better with a longer marinade. Really good, I just tend to rank 5 stars for the things that I taste in my dreams and wake up wanting to prepare more.
