Maybe “pork roll” means a processed pork product commonly consumed for breakfast in western countries.
In Japan, it often means grilled meat roll that is made up of thinly sliced pork. Sometimes the pork is rolled up with vegetables, cheese, or some kind of sauce.
I would like to introduce my favorite combination, sliced pork and shiso (Japanese basil) for today.
It tastes great especially when it’s deep-fried actually.
But my family is now on diet… so I choose to just grill for now haha.
Also today’s key item is miso and garlic sauce! As most of you know, garlic has wonderful flavor which matches so well with any seasonings.
If you are garlic lover, I highly recommend this sauce. And you can also use it with chicken or beef.
Please enjoy amazing flavor of shiso and garlic miso!
