Easy Shoga Yaki Recipe (Japanese Ginger Pork)

My mother teaches us how to make her famous Shoga Yaki (Ginger Pork). Subscribe for more videos! http://goo.gl/18SB8p

Shoga Yaki is one of the most popular and common dishes in Japan and is everyone’s favorite. Usually eaten with cooked rice and some sliced raw cabbage, add a bowl of miso soup on the side to make it a complete meal.

***XxElNinioxX, Vielen Dank für die Übersetzung. Wir würden uns sehr danken.***


3-4 thinly sliced pork
1 stub ginger
1/4 onion
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp sake
1 tsp sugar

First, grate the ginger and squeeze out the juice with your hand. Grate the onion and add it to the ginger. Add in soy sauce, mirin, sake and sugar and mix well. Add in the pork slices and let it marinate for 5 minutes. Shred and thinly slice cabbage and cucumbers if you desire and set aside.

After 5 minutes, wipe off excess marinade from the pork with paper towels. Heat some oil in a frying pan and cook pork slices over medium heat. Cook both sides, being careful not to burn the meat. Add in the remaining sauce and cook for another 30 seconds. Serve with sliced cabbage and cucumbers if desired. Best eaten with a bowl of hot Japanese rice.

Hey guys! Great video again, I’m always frying my pork steaks by the rule of Shinichi’s mom. And I really have to say: Your mom is sooo adorable! Even it’s the 10.000th time you’ve heard that, but I’m always patiently watching the cooking videos with her!
Hope we can time it correctly and I’ll send you three some German treats, maybe some homemade cookies (trying to find the right recipe and way to assure they’ll stay fresh) and such!
Kind regards – Will and Mimoun from Germany

5:33 = Shinishi is just too damn cute!!!

Samantha Leonardo says:

can we substitute sake with something else?

Chris Johnson says:

So glad you posted the recipe here! I could mostly tell what was what, but I wasn’t sure if that was sugar or salt or something else and I caught the Sake but didn’t catch the Mirin. This looks super yummy though. I bet it’s good on chicken too.

Lee Nedlog says:

Good to see mom!!! Was this from a previous vid. I thought mom went back home?

Dave says:

Very good I need to try this! I hope this works with chicken as well or better yet Tofu as I don’t eat pork.

Shiniix Shadow says:

Warum ist der Titel auf deutsch aber in video wird kein Deutsch gesprochen?

Sherman Brown says:

Please include English captions. I took Japanese-101 at a community college, but I’m only getting half of what you’re saying. Thanks. I love Mom.

allmyjm says:

I’m so making these even though I’m not a major carnivore. The pork was so perfectly cooked! Straightforward enough for a bad cook like me. LOL.

Your Mom is a treasure. Learn everything you can from her. Very knowledgeable, and good hands to bless the food.

Great recipe, a little advice regarding the frame rate of the video I think it’s not set properly I feel the movement is very fast, I’m not that experienced but I think it’s higher than 30 FPS
