Japanese Char Siew

Recently I bought this book titled 「日本人妻边惠玉教你做家庭幸福料理」the recipe is quite easy to follow through. So far I have cooked 3-4 dishes using this book. The Char Siew is so easy to prepare and it goes well with Ramen. Recipe adapted from the book page 66-67 with some modification

350g pork (I used the part with slight fat, I used 650g)
1/2 stalk Spring onion (use only the rear)
1 slice ginger
Some oil for pan frying

100cc soya sauce
100cc sake
200cc water
6-7Tbs sugar (I used 2-3Tbs)

1) tie the meat with food string (i bought mine from Daiso) this is to hold the shape of the meat
2) pan fried with some oil till golden brown
3) using my smallest pot (green happycall pot) placed the spring onion, ginger, sauce and meat and bring to boil. Simmer in the sauce for 1hr in low flame.
4) remove the string and slice the amount required. Soaked the balance of meat in the sauce.

I served the Char Siew with bowl of Ramen. My children love it!
