From the Archives: Mixed Rice with Pork and Bamboo Shoots

For anyone who thinks rice is a little boring, I urge you to make this Mixed Rice with Pork and Bamboo Shoots.

From the Archives: Kuwayaki Pork Donburi

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 [...]

Spicy Pork and Vegetable Stir-fry
