Sweet Soy Yakiniku Seasoned Pork

ad

If you ask Japanese children what food they think is the best, yakiniku must be in the top 3. It’s so popular and everybody loves yakiniku. We cook thin sliced meat by ourselves with small charcoal grill or an extremely hot stone. There are many restaurants, from cheap all-you-can-eat ones to expensive ones that offer yakiniku, it means yakiniku is kind of a national food.

We miss yakiniku abroad. We used to buy seasoning for yakiniku and do it at home also. Of course, there is no yakiniku seasoning sold in Finland. So, here is the easiest recipe for yakiniku.

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 chunks for karaage and leave two without seasoning.
