Pork Shoulder Easy recipe|Ingredients

Ingredients are as follows;

  • Pork shoulder/butt (The height of the meat has to fit in a pan when you put the lid.)

  • Whole Earth (Sugar alternative)

  • Soy sauce

  • Sake

  • Water

  • Vegetables
    Putting some vegetables would make the taste of the sauce much better.

    (This time, I used carrot, scallions, asparagus, garlic, celery and potato. However, be aware that some of the vegetables can increase the amount of carbs in the meal. Except potato, the rest of the ingredients will not add much carbs. As potato contains too much carbs, it is not recommended.)



Pork Shoulder Easy recipe|How to make

1 Sprinkle salt and pepper on the surface of the pork. Stub the meat by fork or pointed knife thoroughly to make the meat absorb the sauce later.

3 When the color is changed to brown, put all the vegetables and water. Turn to low heat and simmer for half an hour with the lid. If water gets evaporated, put more water.



4 Done!
