The "sukiyaki" cut pork mentioned in the video is thinly sliced pork. You can ask the butcher for a sukiyaki-style cut if desired, but any thinly sliced lean pork will do.
Coconut sugar is traditionally used as a sweetener in some Asian dishes. It's made from the sap of coconut plant flower buds. Coconut sugar is not palm sugar. The taste is similar to brown sugar, which is a less expensive substitute. This dish tastes great with brown sugar as well; it's your choice.
In a mixing bowl, add the ingredients in the order listed here. Mix well to coat the meat with all the ingredients.
Place your empty frying pan over a medium heat, and allow the pan to warm up.
Add oil to your frying pan and allow it to get hot. Do not allow the oil to burn. Peanut oil and grapeseed have higher burn points than olive oil, but olive oil is fine here because the oil should only be heated for a few moments before adding the ingredients.
Add the pieces of pork to the pan one at a time. Do not crowd the pan. Make sure there is space for the pork to cook.
When the meat is browned on both sides, you can begin adding the red onions.? Cook until they are tender.
Plate your dish. Add green onion slices for garnish if desired.
