What’s great about this Kuwayaki Pork Donburi is how the sweet and sticky sauce clings to the pork and the way the shiso perfumes each bite. When I saw the recipe in one of my favorite cookbooks, I was immediately drawn to the photo. It looked amazing. So, you can imagine I was even more impressed because it tasted better than it looked. The funny thing is I haven’t made it since I wrote that post, in the first year of starting Humble Bean. I’m always hunting for new recipes, so I forgot about how much I enjoyed this dish. I know frying deters some people, but I hope you give this a shot. I know I’m going to.
Here’s the recipe for Kuwayaki Pork Donburi.
