Place cool pork slices on a plate and refrigerate while making dipping sauce. Serve with Miso Dipping Sauce and Soy Sauce Dipping Sauce.

Miso Dipping Sauce:

Place all ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved. The consistency of the sauce should be that of gravy.
