If you’re looking for a quick and simple meal, I suggest trying this Japanese ginger pork! This meal is called shougayaki in Japanese and is usually made with soy sauce. I have made this recipe with coconut aminos for the blog because I know some of us ladies don’t like to eat soy. I was surprised because it actually tasted the same as if I used soy sauce so that’s a good thing! This meal requires thin slices of pork loin and they’re cooked in a sweet ginger “soy” glaze. This meal is usually eaten with a side of shredded cabbage, but I didn’t have any on hand so I used my green lettuce from my garden. I made a homemade creamy sesame dressing, again using coconut aminos instead of soy sauce, that I will also share with you!~
I love making this dish as it doesn’t take any time at all and is super low calorie and low-carb! This meal is soy-free, sugar-free and gluten-free!
For those who don’t mind eating soy, then feel free to change it to soy sauce no problem!
