    Ginger Pork Salad

    In this episode, we’re focusing on ginger, a great way to warm the body as the weather gets colder. We’ll be preparing ginger pork salad, topped with a Japanese standard: fried pork coated with a sweet and savory ginger sauce. The salad is made with plenty of cabbage, too, making it great for digestion! We’ll also be making ginger rice. By adding scallops, we can get a mouth-wateringly fragrant and flavorful result, even without dashi. For our side dish, we’ll be making instant ginger soup — this simple recipe uses only convenient ingredients, and you won’t even need a pot! These three delicious ginger dishes make a great way to warm both the body and soul.
