I think that was when I was in college. I often used to see this mushroom commercial on TV.
This commercial is done by Hokuto corporation to promote mushrooms.
After you hear the song for a few times, you remember it and the music won't stop playing in your head. Oh, It started again!
"Kinoko no ko noko genkinoko......♪"
Mushroom characters in commercials are cute too. Whoever thought this song and the characters is very smart. This commercial got me interested in trying new kinds of mushrooms and I started eating a lot more mushrooms.
Yesterday, I used enoki mushroom and wrapped them with thinly sliced pork.
My mother used to make this dish with bacon, which also tastes great.
Pork wrapped enoki mushroom
*1 serving (makes about 5 mushroom sticks)
- 1/4 lb Pork loin(thinly sliced) (110g)
- 1/4 lb Enoki mushroom (1 small package) (110g)
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Japanese sake (you can substitute with white wine)
- 1 pinch of sugar
- salt and pepper
- tooth picks (same amount of sliced pork)
- Prepare thinly-sliced pork. *It is easier to cut after freezing for about 15 mins. Place sliced pork on kitchen board, put plastic wrap on top and flatten pork by using your fist or a tool. Season pork with salt and pepper.
- Remove the end part of enoki mushroom(about 1/4 of the length) and divide them into the amount of sliced pork.
- Wrap the enoki mushroom with pork and secure with toothpicks. Try to cover most part of enoki mushroom by wrapping from top to down diagonally.
- In a pan, add oil and cook pork with high heat for couple of mins until the pork turn brown.
- Turn the heat down to medium, add remaining ingredients(soy sauce, Japanese sake, and vinegar), and cook for about 5 mins until the juice evaporates and thickens.
