Buta No Shogayaki

Last weekend, we stopped by Papaya supermarket for some grocery shopping. In the meat section, I saw several packs of finely sliced pork labeled shogayaki. I remembered reading a recipe called shogayaki in my Japanese Homestyle Cooking cookbook. So I bought a pack and attempted to make Buta no Shogayaki, which is actually just a simple ginger fried pork. It’s simple and easy to make, and the result is delicious & satisfying. I didn’t follow the recipe religiously as I was not sure I should put 1 cup of sugar in the marinade sauce, so I just figured out the proportion myself.
Buta No Shogayaki

Serves: 2
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 15 mins


  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon mirin
  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock or water
  • 250gr finely sliced pork
  • 2 tablespoons peeled and finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds for garnish


  • In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine ginger, sugar, soy sauce, mirin and stock or water, then bring to boil. Stir to dissolve sugar. Remove sauce from heat and set aside.
  • Marinade pork in the sauce for 10 minutes. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and fry, turning once until pork is no longer pink, 3-4 minutes.
  • Add sauce to the pan and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 minute. Remove pork from pan and divide among 2 warmed plates. Spoon any remaining sauce from pan over slices.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve immediately with warm rice.
