I tried the "Pork Root Vegetable Kinpira with Yuzu Kosho" prepared dish from FamilyMart. This is a summery dish that can be enjoyed refreshingly with crunchy lotus root. It contains 113 kcal, 3.7g (0.25oz) protein, 6.4g (0.14oz) fat, 9.1g (0.04oz) sugar, 2.2g (0.07oz) dietary fiber, 1.2g (0.07oz) salt equivalent, and is priced at 238 yen (tax included).
Pork Root Vegetable Kinpira with Yuzu Kosho
Shredded seasoned pork, konnyaku, and root vegetables (lotus root, carrot, and burdock root) are stir-fried together, and fresh potherb mustard is used for color. The volume is just the right size for one person to eat, and is suitable as a side dish for a meal or as a snack for alcoholic beverages.
The colorful white, red, and green coloring makes you feel a little excited when you put your chopsticks into the bowl. The crunchy texture of the lotus root stands out and is complemented by the savory aroma of sesame oil and the refreshing citrus smell and slight spiciness of yuzu kosho (Japanese citrus pepper).
The carrots and burdocks are a little softer. The different flavors and textures of the carrots and burdock root vegetables are pleasantly different from each other, and the flavor of the pork adds depth to the three root vegetable flavors. The konnyaku (konnyaku is a type of kelp) and mizuna (potherb mustard) also add a pleasantly refreshing touch to the dish. Even on a hot day, it was a dish that made one's chopsticks go faster.
