Good morning! (I’m writing this post early morning, it’s 7:03am here!)
Hope you guys had a fantastic week and ready for the weekend~!! I love sharing my recipes on Friday so you all can inspire to cook something new for the weekend! What do you guys think? Is Friday a good day for you to have a new recipe inspiration?
Anyways, today I’m going to share delicious Chinese Sichuan cuisine, Pepper Pork! It’s very popular dish in Korea, but noticed that it’s not quite that popular in U.S. So I wanted to introduce you guys this delicious easy meal you can prepare!
Because of the spicy flavor, it is amazing with beer, I’m not gonna lie… lol! I served mine with steamed buns, which is classic, but you can definitely serve with warm cooked rice or noodles as well. Superb!
Pepper Pork’s pepper for this dish is chili pepper, not black pepper. So I used only jalapeño, because I love spicy food. If you want to make this dish to a mild version, you can use bell peppers instead. 🙂
Hope you guys give this recipe a try one day!
