Braised Pork with Ginger-Pickled Shishito Peppers
Braised pork over rice with a fried egg and pickled peppers may sound eclectic, but "it's a combination of two of my favorite Japanese dishes," Sang Yoon explains: donburi (meat and an egg with rice) and kakuni (slow-braised pork served with hot mustard). Slideshow: More Japanese Recipes
Shishitos, mild green peppers, are available online at melissas.com.
To go with the rich pork, try a funky, sour Flemish red ale like Rodenbach or La Roja from Michigan's Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales.
