It’s getting so hot and humid from July in Tokyo, Japan.
I love cooking a lot but I don’t want to cook with heat sometimes because of this humidity- I guess you know what I mean if you’ve been to here!
Today I share one of my favorite dish, it’s really good especially for summer 🙂
We have Shabu-shabu (pork hot pot) a lot in winter, but this one is Rei-Shabu- it means cold Shabu-Shabu, it’s not hot pot, more like cold salad.
Cooking time is very short, about 10 minutes, and It’s really delicious light dish even when you don’t have appetite in summer, or for your appetizer.
(Cold Shabu-Shabu with sesame sauce)
Ingredients (2 servings)
200g of thinly sliced pork (If you can get Shabu-Shabu pork, it’s preferred)
4 leaves of lettuce
Or you can use any kinds of vegetable you like for the salad! J
* Sesame dressing
(A) 2 Tablespoons of pure white sesame paste
(A) 2 Tablespoons of soy sauce
(A) 1 Tablespoon of rice vinegar
(A) 1 Tablespoon of sugar or honey
1. Mix all the (A)s in a bawl well.
2. Cut the cucumber into 5cm pieces and cut into thin strips. Shred the lettuce into bite-size pieces.
3. Boil hot water in a pot and place the sliced pork for 10-20 seconds (or until it cooked) one by one, place in a ice-water, and wash it well. Drain the water.
4. Place lettuce, cucumber, pork on a serving plate and put the sesame dressing on top.
