About the Recipe

Miso combines very well with pork and here they join forces in a dish that is a great meal for sharing with family and friends. The miso is combined with sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger and garlic while the pork is blended with bamboo shoots and shiitake mushrooms for a richer, more complex flavour. You can either present your dish on individual plates or on one large, sharing platter.
