School has finally started after a very long summer holiday. I'm enjoying a peaceful morning at home where I can finally add some dishes to my Gallery Page. Today I made Ginger Pork.
Ginger Pork is a very popular Japanese dish made by grilling slices of pork marinated in ginger sauce. If you go into any Japanese restaurant during lunch hours, chances of finding this dish on a daily special would be quite high.
The combination of pork and ginger makes perfect sense as ginger, high in potassuim helps lower high blood pressure, while the protein in pork softens the blood vessels which makes it effective in preventing arteriosclerosis.
I've also added shishito pepper, a very popular sweet green pepper during the summer and fall season. This vegetable is called shishito green pepper as the tip of the pepper resembles the head of a lion (shishi). It is also full of nutrition such as vitamin C and potassuim to help you recover from the tiredness of the summer heat and carotene which is known to be effective for younger looking skin and anti-aging of cells.
You can grill it or fry it and sprinkle salt or soy sauce over it. Be sure to poke some holes with a tooth pick before you grill it to prevent it from popping!
