Shoga yaki, Sweet ginger teriyaki sauce is quick and easy recipe, about 15 minutes you can serve this meal! You can use sliced meat or pork chop. I cook both way. I put picture here ↑ sliced one, and ↓ pork chop.
In the U.S, I rarely see sliced pork which is appropriate to Shogayaki, so I often buy chunk of pork, freeze it half way, and sliced them by meat slicer. If you don’t have a slicer, you can slice by kichen knife. The tip is freeze half way. If you freeze all the way, you may have hard time to slice it. I usually use Country-style ribs (a.k.a. Country Ribs) for shogayaki.
Shoga means ginger, and yaki means grill or fry. Fresh ginger is an important ingredient for this meal. I discover the jucy one is better to cook with this meal. Sometimes I bought ginger and I graind it, they don’t have juce at all. If you can find fresh and jucy one, you will already success to making Shogayaki!
This is one of popular food in Japan. Also it is bento favorit. Popular for Teishoku ya which is fixed menu restaurant. Sweet and spicy taste and soy sauce on meat make very good with white Japanese plain rice. This sweet and spicy food, you may want to eat more rice! Watch out!!
