Delicious Stir-fry Pork with Japanese Takana (豚高菜炒め)

delicious stir fry pork with japanese takana recipe
Have you tried these Stir-fry Pork with Japanese Pickled Vegetables and White Bunashimeji Mushrooms before? I fell in love with #Takana (高菜) almost immediately when I first ate them in Japan. Since then, I'm always scouting for these tsukemono (漬物) in the Japanese supermarkets. You just gotta try to believe!

I got a lovely surprise from my Japanese friend one day when she bought these souvenirs from Tokyo for me. Do you recognize any of these Japanese products? Let me introduce these goodies to you:
  • Tonjiru / Butajiru (とん汁 / 豚汁) - Japanese soup made with pork and vegetables and flavoured with #miso.
  • Mentaiko Furikake (味なふりかけ 明太子) - delicious marinated pollock roe rice seasonings.
  • Takana (高菜) - Japanese Pickled Vegetables, one of my fave ingredients for Japanese pasta.

I was really thrilled and opened up a packet of the お徳用国産高菜油炒め pickled vegetables and cook my family's favourite Japanese pasta again. Instead of my usual #Mentaiko, I substituted with bacon instead. It was satisfaction to the max!

You can get the recipe from my previous posting:

Well, I had some leftover takana since I didn't use the entire packet for my pasta. Spotted some White Bunashimeji Mushrooms at the supermarket and thought they might go well with my Stir-fry Pork with Japanese Takana (豚高菜炒め), and indeed they were another perfect marriage!

    1. Reana, I really like the canned diced fish, very nice with porridge! Oh dear, looks like it's gone since few others from M'sia have already gotten their gift. I've sent countless items overseas & this is the 1st time it's lost in transition :< I'm so sad; looks like my mom's effort has gone to waste. So sorry!

  4. Oh yes, I love this dish too except I don't have a nice Japanese friend, so I could only use the local version of this veg. I know it's not going to be the same taste. Next time I goes to a Japanese supermarket here, shall look out for this. Looks really delicious to go with pasta

  11. I love Japanese foods! I have never tried it before as I usually eat those common Japanese foods such as okonomiyaki, takoyaki, udon, things like that. But will definitely try this =) except for the pork thingy. I don't eat pork so I might be substituting it with chicken or beef. Thanks for such a great recipe.

  16. Haha your posts always makes me hungry. And your food pictures are much more appetizing than the ones I posted :D

    I've never tried most of the ingredients here and surely haven't tried any takana before. I wonder what it tastes like for me. Don't get me wrong, I love Japanese food. Just that it seems there have so many recipes than those in standard Japanese restaurants.

    Oya, have you ever cooked unagi before?

    P.S Happy Friday, tomorrow, Shirley!

    1. Arms, I need to learn how to take impressive food pix! Sigh! Japanese Takana tasted a bit like our salted veggie except that it's milder.

      Unagi?? See if I can tempt you with my creation using unagi: Twin-Egg Henaff French Pate Recipe. Have a happy Friday!
