This doesn't have miso paste, why it's called "Miso Soup" is because it's like 'home made' miso soup.
This is a Japanese dish, so if you don't have access to burdock, trefoil, you can replace it with other veggies such as mushrooms, or any of your favorites.
You can buy shoyu and mirin in the international section of the grocery store, or a specialty store may have.
Still very tasty!

How To Make
Cut the meat (pork/beef) into quarters and season with salt and pepper. Cut all the vegetables (carrot, burdock, welsh onion) into bite size pieces.
In pot, heat sesame oil and fry the meat. When it's fully cooked, add the garlic and cook a little more. When you can smell it's done.
Add the water, sake, 1/2 tsp of salt, burdock and carrot. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes.
When vegetables are soft, add mirin, shoyu and welsh onion and cook/boil for 2 minutes.
