Korean Fried Pork



After having enjoyed so much of Chinese food during the New Year I prepared this Korean dish for a change.  I made this porky dish with only one kind of paste and that is the Sunchang Ssamjang.   Definitely more economical to DIY this dish compared to having it in the Korean restaurant.


Recipe for Korean Fried Pork

     
Ingredients
  • 250 gm thinly sliced pork
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp Sunchang Ssamjang (seasoned bean paste)
  • 1/2  Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 small carrot, julienned
  • 1/2  tsp lightly toasted sesame seeds ( I used black sesame seeds)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1.1/2 tsp black soya sauce
  • Spring onions
Method
  1. Mix the thinly sliced pork with the Korean bean paste, sesame oil and onion.  Keep refrigerated, preferably overnight.
  2. Pan fry till cooked, add in black soya sauce and sugar to taste.
  3. Toss in the carrot and spring onions.
  4. Sprinkle on the sesame seeds.
  5. Dish out and serve immediately.

  3. Oh my Cheah, that fried pork sure does look yummy. I would love to try it. I don't have the same kind of bean paste as the one you mention but I'm guessing the kind that I do have will work, hopefully:) Thanks you so much for sharing...

  5. Looks good and easy but must get the sauce first. Is the sauce very salty?

  8. Hi Cheah, I can't remember how I joined Google Circles and I seldom use it. Sometimes click on your icon will lead me to Google Circles, then lead to someone else blog. Anyway, back to your dish. I seldom eat Korean but I think this dish shares a lot of similarity with chinese dish, looks nice!

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Sweet potato steamed cake ~ 红薯蒸蛋糕

After making the  Okinawan black sugar steamed cakes, I  made these and this time  added in some sweet potatoes.  These are moist, not overly sweet and can be enjoyed as a healthy breakfast or served with  a hot pot of brewed tea to snack on.
