Ratios of Seasonings/調味料の割合

I made both "buta no shoga yaki" (pork fried with ginger) and "ton (or buta) don" (pork bowl) yesterday.
For both dishes, I like to use "ratios". For the former, I used a mirin, soy sauce, and sake ratio of 1:1:0.5. I can use other ratios like 1:1:1 and 1:1:0 (no sake).
For the latter, I used a dashi, mirin, and soy sauce ratio of 4:1:1 yesterday. I can use other ratios such as 3:1:1.
Buta no shoga yaki:
300 g pork, thinly sliced
30 ml mirin
30 ml soy sauce
15 ml sake
1 knob ginger, grated
薄切り豚肉300 g
みりん 30 ml
醤油 30 ml
酒 30 ml
おろし生姜 1カケ
Ton don:
300 g pork, thinly sliced
200 ml dashi (water + instant dashi in my case)
50 ml mirin
50 ml soy sauce
1 onion
1 knob ginger, grated
薄切り豚肉300 g
出汁 200 ml(私の場合、水+出汁の素)
みりん 50 ml
醤油 50 ml
玉ねぎ 1個
おろし生姜 1カケ

I used this high-quality pork, which I bought at the festival of the local wholesale market:
