1 1/2 lb. pork tenderloin, fat removed, cut lengthwise and sliced few millimetres thick (this is very important for the outcome of this recipe... you will definitely not get the desired results, taste and texture if you don't cut thin enough)
1/2 c. mirin
1/4 c. soya sauce
2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 cloves of garlic
3 tbsp canola oil
- In a bowl, mix the mirin, soya sauce, ginger, rice vinegar and garlic. Season with pepper. Add the pork and mix until well coated.
- Cover the bowl and marinate meat in the fridge for about 2 hours.
- Once the time is up, drain the meat, making sure you keep the marinade.
- In a pan or a wok, heat the oil and sauté the meat, until golden.
- Set aside on a plate and keep warm.
- Pour the marinade in the pan or wok and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
- Reduce heat to low and simmer until the mixture becomes syrupy.
- Remove from heat.
- Add the meat and stir slightly until well coated.
