Ginger Pork Sauté - Butaniku no Shoga-yaki

Imagine thinly sliced pork, cooked in sweet ginger soy sauce until the meat is extra tender and the sauce turns into a glace. Sounds lovely no? And the best thing is it tastes just as amazing, not to mention super simple to cook at home. ♥ Gah, looking at my photo, I just realize that I should have use green vegetables like green beans or asparagus to give more contrast in color. Oh well.
