Directions

Shabu Shabu: 

Pour sake and water into a large frying pan or wok and bring to boil. Once boiled, turn down heat and simmer. Cook pork slices 1 at a time. Remove each slice and cool in a strainer. 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. Once this is achieved pour sauce into a bowl and serve with chilled pork slices. Both the miso dipping sauce and the soy sauce dipping sauce can be served with the pork slices.
