I love the lush sweet, and salty flavour of the meat. I dream about the melt in your mouth pork fat and I crave the delicious pork crackling. I am a pork addict.

Hello my name is Julie, I am a pork addict.  It has been 10 minutes since my last pork dish. I think about pork all the time. I find my mind wandering to BBQ pork spare ribs, pulled pork rolls and any other pork dish I can get my hands on.

I thought I could control the cravings but I can’t.

Korean Pork Recipe – Pin Me – For a Delicious Meal!

I live and breathe pork.  All I think about is my next meal.

In an attempt to vary my pork experience I have explored Korean Chili Pork.  It hasn’t improved my pork addiction it has made it worse. The chili, garlic and ginger flavours compliment the sweet pork so perfectly.

  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • marinade
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1 TBS garlic grated
  • 3 TBS Korean Chili Paste
  • 1 TBS sesame oil
  1. Place the meat, and marinade ingredients in a bowl. Combine and allow to marinade for an hour or more.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok and add the onion and the carrot. Cook until the onion has softened.
  3. Add the meat and the marinade to the wok. Cook for 2 -3 minutes stirring.
  4. Add the mirin and lemon juice and continue to cook and stir until the meat is cooked.
  5. Turn off the heat and add the shallots. Stir them through the dish.

So, what are the flavour??  The dish is smokey, garlicky and zesty with a nice amount of heat. We served the dish with rice and a braised Kale side.

I know I am biased but this is such an easy and tasty dish.
