Kelp Roll with Sliced Pork and Gobo (Konbu-maki)

Introduction

Konbu (kelp), along with kanpyo (dried gourd strips), is a dream food of near-to-zero calorie despite of its rich nutrition like calcium, kalium, magnecium, iron and vitamin A. In this recipe, thinly sliced pork and gobo (burdock root) are wrapped in Konbu giving healthy protein and additional fiber.

    2 cups dashi (broth)
    15g kanpyo (dried goard strips)
    300g thinly sliced pork (sukiyaki-slice)
    2 Tbsp light soy sauce (for seasoning sliced pork)

    2.5 Tbsp sake
    2.5 Tbsp mirin
    0.3 cup soy sauce
