Weekend Cooking: Chashu

I decided to get started on my goal of learning to make Japanese dishes. One of my favorites is ramen. But one component of good ramen is the delicious pork slices that sit in my tonkotsu ramen. I found this recipe for making the chashu (the yummy pork in my ramen) and followed it pretty closely.

I used pork loin instead of belly but I think I'll try belly next time. It took about 2 hours in total to make. My loin was about twice the size of the recipe so it took longer. We had some over rice with the yummy (salty) sauce it produced.

I look forward to trying my hand at homemade ramen and sharing my results.
