Juicy and Tender!  Easiest Chashu / Char Siu (Japanese Ramen Pork) ever!

We call any kind of pork slices on top of Ramen “Char Siu”.  Usually braised and sometimes roasted. It is confusing 😅

300g (10.5oz.) thinly sliced pork (for Shabu-Shabu)


* 2 tbsp. soy sauce

* 1 tsp. sugar

* 1 clove grated garlic

* 1 tbsp. grated ginger

1/2 long onion


1. Season the pork with A. Slice the long onion diagonally.

2. Place the pork slices horizontally so that each slice overlaps the adjacent one.

5. Place it on a microwavable dish and microwave on high (700W) for 5 minutes.
