Japanese Dish-Yakiniku-Teisyoku-Lunch

 Stir frying is one of the most commonly used cooking methods in Asia. Adding some ingredients in a heated pan. Season them while frying. It sure does sound easy. But it also easily turns out not exactly the way you want. Especially when it comes to marinated meat with vegetables, it can end up either burn or soggy. Stir frying is not only about controlling high heat. You can also pay attention to the order of heating process, knowing what comes first and what comes next can make a big difference in result! This time I would like to show you “Yakiniku style” stir fried pork & vegetable. Soy sauce and miso based marinade cooked with lots of vegetables. Serving with steamed rice and miso soup can make a perfect Teisyoku/Lunch combo!
