Pork and Rice 2 ways...Thai-style and Japanese-style

I made two different kinds of pork meat sauces for the rice bowl. One is a Thai-style, and it's got the very nice heat. The other kind is a very Japanese-style; it's flavored with miso. Both are almost addictively good that it's hard to say which I like better. Both times, I served them with the brown rice made with my donabe rice cooker, Kamado-san. Somehow, the brown rice goes especially well with the meat sauce!!

I posted both recipes on toiro's website (click below). The recipes in the website are for the white rice, but you can use either kind. Hope you enjoy!
