In This Recipe
In a pot, bring 500ml of water to a boil. Lower the heat down to medium low, and add in the bonito flakes. Let it simmer for 5 minutes, then add in brown rice, miso paste, soy sauce & salt to taste. Cover with a lid and let the rice cook for about 20 minutes. I like my grains with some bite to it, extend the time if you like it softer.
After 20 minutes add in the enoki and pea shoots for a minute or two & white pepper to taste. Set aside till ready for assembling.
While waiting for the rice to be cooked, in a pan sauteed the pork slices with a tbs of oil till the pork are 60% cooked through. After which, add in 200ml of water/chicken stock & simmer on medium heat for two minutes. Remove the pork slices from the stock & set aside. Add in soy sauce, winter melon sugar, grated ginger, mirin, sake & onion slices and cook on medium low till onions turn soft.
Once the onions turn soft, put the pork slices back in and continue cooking for 5 minutes. Assemble on a plate with the grains first then top with tons of pork slices and a raw egg yolk right in the center. Garnish with scallions & sesame seeds~ You are ready to serve!
