Step by Step, Ya’ll

Step 1: Prep the Veggies and Pork Belly

First, we gonna prep the veggies. Dice up the onion, slice the carrots, dice the potatoes, and slice the shiitake mushrooms.

Next up, slice up the pork belly into bite-size pieces. We gon’ fry these babies up later, so keep ’em separate from the veggies for now.

Step 2: Fry Up the Pork

Time to get that pork belly sizzlin’! Heat up 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan on medium-high heat. Add the pork and fry it up until it’s golden and crispy. Remove from pan and set aside.

Step 3: Saute the Veggies

Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the same pan and saute the onions until they’re translucent. Add the carrots, potatoes, and shiitake mushrooms and saute for a few minutes until they start to soften.

Step 4: Add the Broth

Now we got dem veggies all sauteed up, let’s add in the broth. Pour in the dashi broth and bring it to a boil.

Step 5: Add the Seasonings and Miso

Time to add some flavor to this party. Add the soy sauce, sake, mirin, sugar, and grated ginger to the pot. Give it a good stir and let it simmer for a few minutes. Then, add the miso paste.

Step 6: Simmer and Serve

Once you added in the miso paste, don’t let the soup boil or else the miso will lose some of its flavor. Let it simmer for a few more minutes.

Time to Chow Down!

And BAM! That’s how ya make Tonjiru like a pro. Garnish it with some green onions or seaweed for a lil’ extra flavor.
