Water for the Broth
Use a peeler to shave the carrot into ribbons, running it down all sides of the carrot evenly until you reach the centre.
Trim the spring onion and thinly slice on an angle.
Thinly slice the shiitake mushrooms.
Drain the sweetcorn in a sieve.
Heat a large frying pan on high heat (no oil). Once the pan is hot, add the sweetcorn and cook until charred, 5-6 mins. Adjust the heat if necessary. Stir only twice during this time - you want the sweetcorn to be lightly charred.
Set aside in a small bowl covered to keep warm. Boil a half full kettle.
Heat the same frying pan on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
Once hot, add the pork mince and miso paste, fry until golden, 4-5 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the chilli flakes and fry for 1 more min. Set aside in a small bowl, covered to keep warm. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw pork. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Heat the frying pan on a medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
When hot, add the mushrooms and soy sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, until starting to brown, 3-4 mins.
Meanwhile, add the boiled water (see pantry) to a saucepan and bring back to the boil.
Add the Asian broth paste and simmer for 1-2 mins. Add the carrot, simmer for a further 2 mins.
Share the broth and carrot ribbons between your bowls.
Top in sections with the spicy miso pork, charred sweetcorn and soy shiitake mushrooms.
Drizzle over the sambal paste, then garnish with the sesame seeds and spring onion.
