Is pork chashu vegan?

Pork chashu is a traditional Japanese ingredient made by slow-cooking pork belly in a savory marinade until it becomes tender and flavorful. This delicacy has a melt-in-your-mouth texture that is perfect for ramen or even as a standalone dish. Its rich umami flavor is achieved by simmering the meat in a mixture of soy sauce, mirin, sake, sugar, and aromatics. Pork chashu is an ideal protein to add to any dish to elevate its taste and bring a touch of exoticism.

Pork chashu is a non-vegan food ingredient.
