Mild Pork Shabu Somen with Cold Soymilk


Pointers from Rie

  • By putting pork into boiling hot water or ice cold water, it will become hard; so when cooking, be cautious of the temperature.
  • Just shaking the strainer with the somen will result in a lot of water remaining which will dilute the sauce. Press down from the top of the somen to get rid of all the water.
