Pork and Tofu Soup with Miso and Cabbage

White miso already is packed with umami, but browning it as we do to make this soup builds even more flavor. Just a small amount of pork is enough to create a rich, porky broth; firm tofu gives the dish substance without making it heavy. Make sure to use napa cabbage, not regular green cabbage; the frilly leaves of napa are more delicate and become tender and silky after just a few minutes of simmering, but the stems will remain crisp-tender. The cabbage, tofu and scallions aren't needed until near the end of cooking, so prep these ingredients while the soup cooks. If you like, garnish with toasted sesame seeds and serve with Japanese short-grain rice.

Tip

Don't fret when the bottom of the pot begins browning. Just keep stirring to create an even coating of caramelized miso. Also, be sure to stir and scrape up the browned bottom before turning to the pressure cooker function in order to avoid getting a “burn” error message.
