Soak and soften the shiitake mushrooms in 4 cups of water, (set aside the broth), and cut them into 1 cm (1/2 in) widths. Thinly slice the garlic.
  2. Add some more water to the mushroom broth bringing it to 5 cups. Pour in a pot, mix with katsuo dashi, garlic, pork, cabbage and heat. As it boils scoop off the scum that forms on the surface.
