Chashu — sometimes called “Nibuta” (煮豚) — is Japanese pork, slow-braised and simmered in a sweet and savory sauce.
The 10+ hours of cooking make this decadent pork so tender that it just falls off your fork and melts in your mouth. Complex and rich, it is the perfect topping for a hot bowl of ramen or a hearty donburi.
