Ginger pork is a delicious Japanese dish that features thinly sliced pork cooked with ginger and other flavorful ingredients. Here's a basic recipe for making ginger pork:


  • 400 grams thinly sliced pork (pork loin or pork belly)
  • 2-3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sake (Japanese rice wine)
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: sesame seeds for garnish


Marinate the Pork:

  • In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, sake, mirin, sugar, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Mix well to dissolve the sugar.
  • Add the thinly sliced pork to the marinade, ensuring that each piece is well coated. Let the pork marinate for at least 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.

Cook the Pork:

  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Once the oil is hot, add the marinated pork slices to the pan in a single layer. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until the pork is cooked through and nicely browned.
  • Add the sliced green onions to the pan during the last minute of cooking, allowing them to soften slightly and release their flavor.

Season and Serve:

  • Season the ginger pork with salt and pepper to taste, if needed.
  • Transfer the cooked pork and green onions to a serving plate, garnishing with a sprinkle of sesame seeds if desired.
  • Serve the ginger pork hot with steamed rice and your favorite side dishes.
