Shogayaki is a very typical Japanese pan fried pork dish with soy sauce and ginger flavor. Pork slices are seasoned thoroughly, very fragrant yet tasty. The key is to remove from the heat just before they dry out. It goes perfect with white rice. Perfect side dish for Bento lunch box.

Serving with shredded cabbage is the best. And with cucumber slices and/or tomato slices.

I wasn’t sure if my kids (toddlers) can eat ginger flavor but they ate them all 👍
