On the other day when I was trying to cook ‘Simmered Daikon’ for dinner, I found there was not enough Daikon. I needed more something, so I added Carrots and also Pork for my meat-loving husband. The result was amazingly great, and my family liked it better than Daikon only version.
Daikon 300 to 400g
Ginger 1 small piece *sliced into fine strips
Water *enough to cover vegetables
Pork 400 to 500g *I used Scotch fillets
Sugar 2 tablespoons
Soy Sauce 4 tablespoons
Mirin 2 tablespoons
Sesame Oil 1 teaspoon *for flavour
- Remove skin & cut Daikon about 1-2cm thickness. Cut in half if large. Cut Carrots and Pork into chunky pieces.
- Place Daikon, Carrot and Ginger in a large saucepan or pot, add Water just enough to cover. Bring to the boil over high heat and reduce the heat to simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add seasoning ingredients and Pork, and bring back to the boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover with lid and simmer for 20 minutes.
- Remove the lid and cook over medium heat until the liquid is almost gone.
