‘Pork Shogayaki’, or Ginger Pork, is one of the most popular Izakaya dishes. If you like it, you would certainly love this Takikomigohan. Basically I cooked same ingredients with Rice all together in a rice cooker. While it is cooking, prepare a refreshing Salad or steamed Veggies. It can be a perfect dinner on a busy day.
