Serves: 12 

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2kg pork butt (shoulder roast) cut into 5cm slices
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 2 cups (500ml) water, more if needed
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) Japanese soya sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white (shiro) miso

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Ready in:18min 

  1. Heat canola oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until hot. Sear pork slices until well browned on both sides, then remove. Stir in the garlic and ginger, cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the water, soya sauce, brown sugar, and miso; bring to a simmer, scraping the bottom of the pan to dissolve the caramelized juices.
  2. Place pork into pot, add additional water if needed to cover pork with the sauce. Then, reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 3 hours until the pork is tender, and the sauce has thickened.
