Brining meat enhances its juiciness. If you haven’t tried this technique before, don’t worry – it’s easy! Brine is simply salt, sugar and liquid. In this instance, the tamari sauce provides the salt, the sugar is found in the sake - and there you have your liquid. This combination gives the meat a wonderful flavor and keeps the pork juicy. I love this dish because of the variety of unusual and unique ingredients!
