Pork Soy Ginger


Pork soy ginger is one of the popular home cooking dishes. It really goes well with rice. Sliced pork loin or pork belly are commonly used. However pork loin is more often used. Pork loin contains high amounts of vitamin B1 which helps natural body energy. Ginger also gives you many health benefits.

Traditionally sliced pork is used, but I usually get a block of loin then marinate it at least overnight. You just need to slice it after cooking like roast beef. After marinating, I roast the block of loin in the oven. The key is to initially cook it in foil with the marinade then open up the foil to get the roasted flavour.

As for sides, you can stir fry any vegetables you like. Traditionally sliced green cabbage is served with it. I stir fry onions, carrots and bean shoots for a few minutes then add the marinade and cook them a further couple of minutes.


  • Pork Loin …………….…… 1 block (about 600g)
  • Soy Sauce …….……….….. 3 tbsp
  • White Wine …..………….. 2 tbsp
  • Brown Sugar ….………….. 2 tbsp
  • Ginger …………………..… about 2cm
  • Dashi powder ……………… 1 sachet



  1. Wipe the block of pork with a paper towel to get rid of excess liquid and put aside.
  2. To make the marinade mix the soy sauce, white wine, brown sugar, Dashi and grated ginger.
  3. Put the pork and marinade in a bag like Ziplock then let it rest for at least over night.
  4. Turn the oven to 200 degrees then cook the pork with the marinade in foil for 20 minutes.
  5. Open the foil and turn the oven to 220 degree and cook for a further 15 minutes.
  6. Give the pork a rest for about 5 minutes in the foil.
  7. Slice the pork then serve together with the marinade.

*If you want to freeze the pork, you can put the pork with the marinade in a freezer bag then keep it in the freezer. I recommend to defrost it slowly. Perhaps take the frozen pork out from the freezer the night before then put it in the fridge.
