Haiku Poem – 豚の生姜焼き

shoga yaki
fried pork class
taste heaven

(Ben version)
わしょくや さん しょうがっこう で しょうが やき

(Michiko version)
しん メニュー あご が おちそう しょうが やき

This week I attended a class on how to make shogayaki pork. The class was held at a local elementary school in Des Moines. The teacher was Japanese. There were six students in the class that were all Americans. The students were a mix of men and women. The teacher gave us the ingredients which included pork loins, ginger, onions, mirin, soy sauce, and sugar. First, we cooked the pork loins in a frying pan until lightly brown. Then, we mixed the ginger, mirin, soy sauce and sugar in a cup. After that, we fried the onions in the frying pan. After pouring the cup into the frying pan, we put the pork back in to finish cooking. When the pork was cooked, we removed the pork, but continued frying the onions. Finally, we poured the onions and the juices in the pan over the pork to add flavor. We ate the food that we made in the class and still had enough to take home. I enjoyed learning more about Japanese cuisine but the best part was definitely eating the delicious food!
