Categorised in: | Link of this article

In this video, I will show you how to make Miso Pork Onigiri. If you have miso in your fridge, it’s good chance to use it. Aside with this rice ball, we’ll also make Miso soup with Broccoli and Cabbage. Then, I’ll also introduce Japanese set meal ideas and table setting. 

Ingredients (4 servings) :

Miso Pork Onigiri:
200g Pork loin
1 Tbsp Sugar
1 Tbsp Ginger *paste
30g Miso *2 kinds
1/2 Tbsp Sake
1/2 Tbsp Mirin
1 Tbsp Onion *paste

600g Japanese rice *steamed
Nori seaweed, as needed

Miso Soup with Broccoli and Cabbage:
400ml Dashi soup stock
2 Tbsp Miso
1 piece Broccoli
1/8 size Cabbage
1/4 block Tofu *silken


Miso Pork Onigiri:
1. Cut the pork into small pieces.
2. Grate the onion to make onion paste.
3. Combine miso, sake and mirin to make the miso sauce.
4. Grate ginger to make ginger paste.
5. Heat the frying pan and stir-fry the pork.
6. When it cooked, add ginger paste and then miso sauce, sugar and onion paste.
7. Stir-fry until the sauce almost evaporated.
8. Prepare cooked rice, nori seaweed and plastic cellophane before shaping onigiri.
9. Put the rice on the plastic cellophane and add more rice to cover the miso pork. Wrap and form the onigiri to make triangle shape.
10. Cover with nori seaweed.

For kids version:
1. Place the plastic cellophane then put nori seaweed.
2. Spread a thin layer of rice on half of the nori seaweed and put miso pork on the front side.
3. Roll it and wrap with plastic cellophane to set.

Miso Soup with Broccoli and Cabbage:
1. Cut broccoli and cabbage into bite-size pieces.
2. Pour Dashi soup stock in a pot and put on medium heat.
3. Add Broccoli and cabbage and boil them.
4. Turn to the low heat and add miso.
5. Add tofu and heat again just before boiling.

YUCa’s Tips:

1. If you want to enjoy the texture of meat, cut it into big pieces.
2. Mix the sauce ingredients and microwave for 20 seconds before cooking.
3. Be careful not to stir-fry the meat for long time.
4. Use mushroom, eggplant or other meat as a substitution of pork meat.
