Korean Spicy Pork (제육볶음 Jeyuk bokkeum)
  • 8 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 red chili, chopped (optional)
  • 2 green onion, white/light green part chopped, green part sliced
  • 1 large yellow or sweet onion, very thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbs. Sempio's soy sauce (GanJang)
  • 5 Tbs. Sempio's Korean red pepper paste (Gochujang)
  • 3 Tbs. Mirin (Seasoned rice wine, apple juice can be substituted for mirin)
  • 1 Tbs. Korean red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 tsp. Sesame seeds, crushed with fingers
  • 1 Tbs. Sesame oil
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1½ lb. Thinly sliced pork butt (Pork shoulder or belly can be substituted for pork butt)
  • 1 King oyster mushrooms, cut into bite size (optional)
  1. In a large mixing bowl, add garlic and next 10 ingredients(until salt and pepper) and mix well until everything has combined. Add thinly sliced pork one by one and spread sauce evenly on pork. If you like, you can add mushroom. Marinate pork mixture at least 20 minutes to overnight.
  2. In cold skillet, add pork mixture and then turn on heat over high heat. When it starts simmering, stirring with a spatular/chopsticks/tongs. It will get a bit watery, just keep stir and cook about 12 minutes or so until all the moisture has evaporated. If you want a bit of chard flavor, spread pork evenly and don't stir for a minutes over high heat.
  3. Remover from heat, transfer to a serving plate. Garnish with remaining green part of green onion, sesame seeds and sesame oil. Enjoy!
You can serve with just a bowl of warm rice, it is super delicious!
My favorite way to eat is though, wrap it with rice in lettuce! I always use mixture of greens and herbs whatever fresh in market.
In this video I used green and red lettuce, raw cabbage, Korean wild sesame leaves(perilla/깻잎) and crown daisy (Tong ho/쑥갓).
