Make! Teriyaki pork

One of the many things I love to order at Japanese restaurants is meat or fish in a teriyaki sauce. It's also easy to make at home and although I've used pork this time, it goes with so many meats/proteins: think chicken, beef, salmon, tofu, etc etc.

I used 6 pork loin steaks, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/2 cup mirin, 1/4 cup sugar and a dash of sesame oil.

In a casserole dish, put the soy sauce, mirin, sugar and sesame oil. Warm over a medium heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Sauce made!

Fry the pork steaks in a griddle pan for a few minutes on each side (I used vegetable oil and a little sesame oil).

Now add your pork steaks into the sauce in your casserole dish, bringing to a simmer. Put the lid on and allow the meat to simmer gently in the sauce for around 30 minutes.

I served this with stir-fried peppers, brown rice and spring onions. Ladle over some of the delicious sauce before serving, and bon appetit! One of those easy dishes that everyone seems to like.

I am linking up this recipe with Honest Mum's Tasty Tuesday:


  1. Oh my goodness that food looks delicious! I love teriyaki sauce and usually would order the teriyaki chicken. I might have to try this meal.

    1. Thanks! :) It's so easy to make. You could use the same sauce over vegetables or tofu for the vegetarians in the family. It's also a nice extra to sprinkle some sesame seeds over the dish before serving. x

  2. Looks yummy, so my kind of food! Thanks for linking lovelyx

  3. This looks lovely. I have some pork chops and was wondering what to do with them so will give this a go
