Japanese-style ginger-flavored spare ribServes 4
Hiroyuki Kurosu, chef at the Michelin-starred Hinokizaka Restaurant, uses fewer ingredients and employs a pressure cooker to seal in the flavors of his pork spare ribs, supplemented with vegetables, sake and mirin. His ginger is served raw, as a sculpted garnish, both thinly sliced and julienned.
