Pork goes well with ginger. Naturally this dish needs ginger to bring out its fullest flavour. Add in some ginger slices if you do not have ginger juice.
Remember to get the finely sliced pork meant for shabu shabu. I would recommend pork belly as it has some fats and is more tender than pork collar which is tougher.
Ingredients160g thin pork slices
Seasoning Sauce (Can also be replaced with ready made sukiyaki or Japanese bbq sauce in bottle form)1 tsp ginger juice

Alternate Recipe for Pork with Ginger
Lay out the pork slices in stacks of twos
In a bowl, combine soy sauce, mirin, grated ginger or ginger juice, sesame oil
Heat oil in a fry pan and using tongs or chopsticks, pick up a pair of the pork slices and dip both sides into the sauce quickly and saute in the pan over medium heat.
When the pork changes colour, turn it over and continue to saute until the slices separate from each other
Then saute the uncooked sides till it is completely cooked
Remove the cooked pieces and repeat with the remaining slices
