Onion Seasoned Pork

Seasoning makes meat delicious and tender. In this recipe, I use onion, which is especially good to make meat tender. The smell of soy sauce and sweet taste of onion increase your appetite.

NOTES
This is one of my favorite seasoning recipes. It reminds me of Japanese ginger pork and the seasoning is similar to a dip for yakiniku (grilled meat on the fire). You can cook with any type of meat and any type of cutting technique. Strips of pork, beef and chicken are popular here in Finland, those work very nicely. It becomes a perfect dinner when you stir fry the meat with vegetables or cook in the oven with vegetables.
In Finland, I eat pork more often than in Japan. I buy a block of pork neck and slice it into thin and chunky pieces. One reason I buy pork is the price (7e/kg), same as chicken thigh. Another thing is that I realized it’s totally useful to season pork and freeze it. My variations to season grow in numbers, and every time I buy meat I feel excited about which recipe shall I try next.
If you season and freeze meat, it makes it easy to prepare dinner in the busy evening, and also makes meat tender and juicy. I always buy 2 kg of pork, slice and cut them and make 6 of 300g meat packets. Season two of those sliced pork for frying, two of pork chunk for karaage and leave two without seasoning.
