Pork and Mushrooms in Teriyaki Sauce

So how's everyone doing? I've been busy with a lot of stuff lately that's why I haven't been on the blogosphere as much as I used to...and I am really sorry about that! One post a week is all I can do now...but hopefully, things will get better and I can get back to posting more recipes for you. Hope you will bear with me and continue to visit PiTCC despite my seldom posts. To all my blogger friends who I haven't visited for so long, my apologies! I promise to make it up to you one of these days! :)

What I have for you today is something similar to the Teriyaki Pork Chops & Tofu that I shared here before. Unlike the Japanese Teriyaki wherein the meat is grilled, this dish doesn't require grilling. You just have to simmer the meat in teriyaki sauce until it's tender and the sauce is thick enough to give the meat the luster that's needed in teriyaki dishes. The hubs and my girls are big fans of this...and I am too! Though I know that teriyaki isn't really teriyaki without the grilling, I must say that this is such a good alternative! You should try it!



Ingredients:
  • 2 lbs. pork cut into cubes (I used country style ribs)
  • 2 cups fresh button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp minced ginger
  • 6 stalks green onions, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp roasted sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
For the Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup cooking sake
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
Instructions:
1. Sprinkle pork with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Let sit for at least 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, mix sauce ingredients in a small bowl until sugar is dissolved. Set aside.
3. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute pork and ginger in olive oil until juice from pork starts to come out.
4. Pour sauce into skillet. Simmer for 30 minutes or until pork is almost cooked and tender. Add mushrooms and stir until well combined with pork. Simmer for 5 more minutes or until almost cooked. Add the green onions and sesame seeds. Simmer for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat. Serve hot with rice.
