Ingredients

  • ¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tsp. mirin
  • 1 tsp. sake
  • 1 Tbsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. minced ginger
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 4 boneless pork chops, cut into 1" cubes
  • 2 Tbsp. peanut oil
  • 1 Tbsp. minced ginger
  • 2 Tbsp. Chinese or Japanese rice wine
  • 3 scallions, peeled and chopped on the diagonal into 1" sections, divided

Directions

  • Make the sauce: In a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk together all the teriyaki sauce ingredients and let the liquids come to a low boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer the sauce until thickened, about 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside.
  • Make the pork: In a large bowl, whisk together Teriyaki Sauce and water. Toss in the pork and marinate for 20 minutes.
  • Heat a wok or medium skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. When oil is hot, add minced ginger. Stir-fry for 30 seconds or until it is aromatic.
  • Add pork. Let it brown for 1 minute, then stir-fry for 1–2 minutes or until it is no longer pink.
  • Stir in rice wine and scallion whites. Continue stir-frying for 1 minute or until pork is cooked through. Serve, garnishing with scallion greens.
