  • Summary

    While most of the world knows Japan for only one soup, there’s more to the Japanese soup repertoire than miso soup. Tonjiru (豚汁), which is also sometimes called Butajiru, literally means “pork soup” and is a mainstay at the dinner table during the frigid months of winter. To make the preparation fast, the pork is usually sliced thin and the vegetables are chopped small. For my version I’ve turned it into a stew, with big chunks of pork belly, konnyaku, carrot, and taro.

    Ingredients

    • 450 gramspork belly (cut into bite-size chunks)
    • 2 scallions (white parts chopped, green parts thinly sliced)
    • 2.5 centimetersfresh ginger (sliced into 8 coins)
    • 1/4 cupsake
    • 6 cupswater
    • 6 centimetersdashi kombu
    • 160 gramsburdock root (~1 root)
    • 1 largecarrot (cut into bit-size chunks)
    • 200 gramskonnyaku (cut into bite-size chunks)
    • 200 gramsbaby taro (peeled and cut in half)
    • 1/4 cupyellow miso (to taste)
