Ponzu Seasoned Chicken Thigh


In Finland, there are no thin slices of meat like in Japan. We have blocks of meat, thick slices for steaks, meat with bones, and ground meat, but no thin slices.

Why thinly sliced meat? You might be thinking. We have a culture of chopsticks. We use chopsticks far more often than knives and forks. In Japan, many different kinds of food are served at once. I believe that like other cuisines, meat is often cooked in thin slices so that it can be picked up and eaten with chopsticks.

But I still need thin slices of meat, so I buy pork chunks and slice them with a knife. I can usually get it up to about 3mm thin, but beyond that it is difficult. When I grill pork of this thickness, it is quite firm.The best way to tenderize the meat without using a meat slicer is to season it.

The seasoning makes the meat more tender. If you freeze the meat after seasoning it, it will come in handy for a busy day’s meal.  Stir-frying the meat with vegetables is a great way to make a meal out of it. Try freezing seasoned meat for convenience.
