  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 brown onion
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 200g Swiss brown mushroom, sliced
  • 200g minced pork meat
  • 200g short pasta of choice (e.g. Shells, fusilli, penne)
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp white miso paste (the kind with dashi would be best)
  • 1-2 tbsp light soy sauce (kikkoman preferred)
  • 1/2 cup pasta cooking water
  • 1 tsp sugar (optional)
  • Salt & black pepper to taste


  1. Sauté the Aromatics:

    • Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
    • Add minced onion & garlic. Sauté until they are browned and fragrant.
  2. Sauté the Mushrooms:

    • Add in the sliced mushrooms, spreading them out in a single layer and leaving them untouched for 2-3 mins to sear and release their earthy umami flavours.
    • The mushrooms may release liquid so keep sautéing until the liquid evaporates and the mushroom mixture is dry.
  3. Cook the Pork:

    • Add the minced pork to the pan, season with a pinch of salt and fry until it’s browned and cooked through.
  4. Add Flavors:

    • Mix in salt, 2 tbsp of butter, and the miso paste (ensure it’s pre-mixed with a little bit of water for smooth incorporation).
  5. Combine Liquids:

    • Pour in 1/2 cup of pasta cooking water and 1 tbsp of soy sauce. Stir well to create a luscious sauce.
  6. Mix in the Pasta:

    • Add the al dente pasta to the pan and cook until everything is well combined and the pasta has absorbed the flavors to your liking.
