Ingredients (4 servings)：
- 200g Thinly Sliced Pork
- 1 piece Ginger Root
- 1/2 small Burdock Root
- Vinegar Water [Combine 1 teaspoon (5ml) vinegar and 2 cups (400ml) water.]
- 1/2 small Japanese Radish (Daikon)
- 1/3 Carrot
- 1/2 sheet Konjac
- 3 dried Shiitake Mushrooms
- 3 Taros (Satoimo)
- Some Green Part of a Long Green Onion
- 90g Additive-free Saga Miso
- Some Shichimi Chili Pepper Powder
- 5 cups (1000ml) Dashi Stock
(Submerge them in a bowl of water with the stem side down to reconstitute beforehand.)
(Many dashi stock powders are available in grocery stores. Combine the dashi stock powder and water according to the product’s cooking instructions.)
Cut the pork into bite-size pieces. Peel the burdock root and cut it into long thin pledges. Soak them into the vinegared water to prevent them from discoloring. Cut the Japanese radish and carrot into quarter moon pieces. Peel the taro and cut it into 7mm rounds. Place the rounds into a bowl. Salt-scrub them to remove the stickiness of the taro, and then rinse them well.
Tear the konjac into small pieces, and parboil them for 2 to 3 minutes to remove unwanted flavors. Cut the reconstituted shiitake mushrooms into quarter moon pieces.
Then, bring it to a boil. Remove the foam from time to time, and add the vegetables (add stiffer ones first). Then, add half of the miso, and simmer them to make them absorb the flavor of the soup.
Add the rest of the miso to adjust the flavor when the ingredients become soft. Then, ladle the miso soup into a bowl and sprinkle the chopped green onion. Also sprinkle the shichimi chili peppers as you like. Now, enjoy this delicious miso soup!
