STEP 1 Miso soup is a staple of traditional Japanese Cuisine and is served with most meals whether it is for breakfast lunch or dinner. Here we will prepare a Miso soup which includes sweet Japanese turnips. Any turnip with subtle sweet taste will do. After washing the turnip thoroughly, cut in thin slices width-wise. Do not discard the stem and leaves, those are actually edible and add color to the soup.
STEP1 Choosing the right cut of meat : Here we will use pork tenderloin but pork loin is often used in Japan. If using the latter, it is recommended to tenderize the meat first. Pork tenderloin is considered a premium choice in Japan and bears the name of Hire-Katsu.
