One thing that truly captivates me about Japanese cuisine is the unwavering dedication and attention to detail that goes into every dish. From the mastery of sushi rice to the precise artistry behind tempura, Japanese chefs invest years perfecting their craft. It's a culinary journey that involves coaxing out the true essence of ingredients rather than transforming them entirely. This philosophy of simplicity and focus is evident in one of my favorite branches of Japanese cuisine: yakitori.
Yakitori, which translates to "grilled chicken," is a renowned sub-category of Japanese culinary artistry. It revolves around skewered and simply grilled meats, typically coated in a delectably savory and sweet soy-based sauce called tare. While chicken takes center stage in most yakitori recipes, there are instances where succulent pork steals the show. This is precisely the case with our mouthwatering Pork Tsukune.
Our Tsukune (Takitori Pork Meatballs) with Cucumber Sunomono Salad features tender balls of ground pork, delicately seasoned with a blend of miso and ginger. These delectable morsels are expertly grilled and glazed with our unique interpretation of the classic yakitori tare. Served alongside lightly pickled cucumbers and steamed rice, this meal kit provides a quick and convenient way to savor the flavors of yakitori without the need to tackle the intricacies of butchering a whole chicken.
To ensure an exceptional dining experience, the quality of ingredients used in any yakitori recipe is of utmost importance. We consider ourselves fortunate to source our ground pork from the esteemed Pure Country Farms, owned and operated by the Klingeman family in picturesque Central Washington. Spanning 160 acres, this multi-generational farm is at the forefront of free-range, antibiotic-free, and sustainable livestock farming. Initially trailblazers in the heritage pork movement in the United States, Pure Country Farms has expanded to include ranch-raised cattle, offering some of the most flavorful pork and beef available. We are honored to collaborate with them and extend our gratitude to Pure Country Farms for their outstanding products.
