Chef.Morimoto's picture
Ingredients
  Boneless pork spareribs/Fat back 2 1⁄4 Pound, cut into 8 pieces (About 1 Kilogram)
  Soy sauce 4 Tablespoon
  Oil 2 Tablespoon
  Fresh ginger piece 4 Inch
  Sake 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sugar 4 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Directions

To prepare
1. Sprinkle pork with 1 Tbsp soy sauce. Saute in hot oil until brown on both sides. Transfer immediately to a pan of boiling water for 30 seconds (or pour boiling water over pork) to remove excess oil. Drain.
2. Peel ginger. Slice 2 1/2 inches (6 1/2 cm) into several pieces and crush with a tenderizing mallet or the side of a knife. Cut remaining ginger into very fine slivers and reserve until last step.
3. Place pork, crushed ginger, sake, and 7 cups water in a pressure cooker or heavy saucepan. Simmer 40 minutes in pressure cooker or 3 hours in covered saucepan over low heat.
4. Let pork cool (or force-cool) until fat congeals on surface. Skim off fat.
