Ginger Pork with a Scottish Twist!

I made ginger pork a couple of days ago and I found out I didn't have any sake so I used a Single Malt! since some folks think I add Scotch to pancakes why not add to pork! 
The funny thing is I added one of hubby's most expensive ones and boy did it taste good!

Ginger Pork

  • 2 lb of Pork, its best to be partly frozen as it needs to be cut paper thin
  • one large onion
  • 2 tablespoon sake
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon of mirin
  • a little all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated ginger
  1. blend the sauce together with ginger
  2. heat wok, no oil was needed!
  3. slowly add the pork dipped in flour, turning all the time
  4. add the sauce and stir fry for 10 minutes until cooked

What is your favorite alcohol to use in cooking?

  1. Looks good. What's a little expensive scotch in your pork dish :-)

  2. I bet that expensive scotch added the oomph into this dish haha! great looking dish!

  3. Cute post. I love ginger and it's sounds great in this dish. The expensive scotch was well worth it.

  4. This looks really delicious. The flavors including the ginger sounds yummy. My favorite alcohol to add to a dish is probably drink too:)

  5. It's definitely true, alcohol always makes things taste better. I love using marsala in cooking...or a really nice white wine!

  6. This is easy. nothing beats an easy and delicious recipe..

  7. this dish would go great with the guys nothing better than meat and single complints

  8. It looks delicious and what a fun twist--very fusion! ;-)

  9. I've never used scotch for cooking, but that's a lovely idea! Want a try when my wallet is a bit loose ;)

  10. I love adding Port wine and Whiskey to some dishes.
    Good for you, a good scotch always makes a difference.
    Delicious dish ♥

  11. I bet it tastes good with the best bottle of scotch in the house!

  12. I love the flavor of ginger! The chicken looks so good. Yum!

  13. I'm relieved to hear the fine qualities of the scotch came through in your dish! :) And it looks delicious!

    I use lots of liqueurs and brandies in desserts and anything from sake to rum in main dishes. Just a touch is all you need to make a difference.

  14. Molto invitante tempo condensato Piatto. Io userei il Vino Bianco del Veneto Orentale , Secondo te posso OSARE ?
    Buona Settimana Daniela.

  15. Looks good and this is exactly what some Chinese cooking needed...a dash of expensive liqueur.

  16. I love ginger and soy on pork! Scotch can only make it better! Very nice!

  17. Great combination! I usually use ginger with chicken, but I realize it matches pork perfectly well too.

  18. Mmmm....delicious. I love to sue wine in cooking too. I use all types of wine cos I have many bottles of red and white wine at home. Use brandy often too. But I think the best for Chinese cooking is the one called 'Hua Tiao Jiu, found only in Chinese supermarket.

  19. Rebecca, I am sure that the pork taste great with your twist...

  20. This just goes to show you anything is better with WHisky; as I was told in Scotland it is whisky because the other whisky-like substances from other places are not TRUE whisky!
    Hadn't thought about adding them to pancakes but...:-)
