I know Erick's been waiting for Wendell to make this dish since he saw it on NHK Kitchen. Here it is Erick! It was very ono, but ho da humbug to make. You cook the pork, you take it out, you put it back in the pot, you take it out, do stuff to it, put it back. I swear Wendell did that about 4 times. He started the night before and finished off the next day. The recipe can be found here.
No. 1 of the instructions was confusing to me. It says "Put the pork into a pan, cook for about 10 minutes after the water boils." I told Wendell, "What water? So do they mean 'boil' the pork?" He said, "Yup, that's what I did. It's kinda clear that that's what they mean." Ahem . . . maybe clear to some people, but not to me. He also said that he ended up adding mirin and some sugar. He said that he wasn't sure if it was supposed to taste like that, but it was a bit bland to him.
hikone plus plus - Sunday, we woke up early because we wanted to head out to Hikone. It had been several years since we had been there and even more since we paid our respects...
