I feel like I’ve been in a bit of slump when it comes to trying new recipes, but recently I’ve been inspired to try out new ones. For the meat roll-ups recipe, I frequently buy thinly sliced pork loin strips that are meant for pork shogayaki. So recently I decided to use them for their original purpose, and we were not disappointed! This is pork fried in ginger, and it goes great with rice and vegetables, though I think shredded cabbage is a pretty common side. This recipe is very simple and easy to make. I think this would go great in bento too.
This recipe is simple, easy to make, and most importantly, delicious! It’s the number one recipe for shogayaki on Cookpad, and it quickly became a staple in my meal planning.
