About this recipe: Japanese comfort food! The smell will draw you in!
i made this in the slow cooker and it turned out amazing! i even caught the husband eating chunks of pork out of the pot, something he never does! i cut the roast into smaller pieces, browned all sides in a little oil, and made the sauce in the same pot. i lined the bottom of the slow cooker with a sliced onion, and placed the pork pieces on it, then dumped the sauce in. after about 5 hours on high, the meat was falling apart in tender chunks and the house smelled wonderful. plenty of juicy gravy too! next time because i like ginger so much , i think i'll simply add sliced ginger to the slow cooker with the onion bed. - 14 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Very tasty and flavorful pork. It was a bit heavy, but it made a good combination with jasmine rice. I used low-sodium miso paste, but the meat was still somewhat salty. I will either cut down the soy sauce or use low-sodium soy sauce next time. Also the sauce thicken up pretty fast, so be sure you check frequently to see if you need to add more water. - 20 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My daughter Stephanie made this for dinner and it was absolutely delicious. This sauce that forms is sooooo tasty. I hope that she makes it again soon! - 08 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
