Korean Spicy Stir Fried Oink! Oink!


I am back! But still, apologies that I have been so boring lately. No baking. No cooking. No nothing except for those eating out and ding dong bell posts.

Not that I have not been cooking, but I have been cooking those same old things that have been published before or those dishes that are too simple to be considered the subject of a post.

And then there are those dishes that I cooked, but have no time to post or am not inspired to write about. To the non-bloggers, do you know that it is not that easy to write a post? All those stories that come with the recipes take time and inspiration to write. 


I have been quite busy/stressed at work (hence the recent break) and with work issues in my head, it's not easy to be inspired. But I am back, feeling much rested mentally, and hence this post on something that has been sitting in my folder for many many weeks.

When I watched Maangchi's video for this Spicy Stir Fried Pork, I was quite convinced to try it because everything is basically dumped into the frying pan - pork, marinade and all and then stir fried - just like that, done in 15 minutes or so.


But instead of doing that, I chose to do things the conventional way which is to marinate the meat first. I find that it's easier for me to prep overnight and then stir fry the marinated meat the next day.


As expected, the result did not disappoint and it was a swift and easy dish to prepare. The level of spiciness can be adjusted to your own taste by adding more or less hot pepper flakes which can pack quite a punch. I think this recipe would also be great with chicken.


Korean Spicy Stir-Fried Pork
Recipe source : Maangchi

Ingredients :
- 500g pork collar, cut into cubes

Marinade (mix together) :
- 2 tbsp hot pepper paste (gochujang)
- 2 tbsp light soya sauce
- 1 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp hot pepper flakes (gochugaru), or to taste
- 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper

- 1 medium sized yellow onion, sliced
- 3 stalks spring onions, sliced
- 2 tsp toasted sesame seeds

Method :
1. Marinate the pork with the marinade overnight in the fridge.
2. Bring out to room temperature 30-45 minutes before cooking.
3. Heat pan and add a tablespoon of oil.
4. Add marinated pork and stir fry for 25-30 minutes or until cooked.
5. Add sliced onion and stir fry briefly.

  1. wah you are a pro k cuisine cook now. Gochujang and gochugaru just roll off your tongue easily. A little spicy and this dish would be fine for me but very very spicy for STP and his missus.

  4. I can totally relate to what you're feeling in paragraphs 1 - 3. I agree, it's not easy (and quite time consuming) to write a post (especially one that's as lengthy as the ones I put out. I like to be thorough and detailed..hehe, some might call it long-winded and boring but I don't really care. I believe in putting my best effort/work into a post and not just posting for the sake of numbers.
