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!

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Curry Chicken Puff ~ 咖哩鸡角

This is a 'cheat' version of curry puffs.  Why do I say 'cheat'?  Because the puff pastries were store bought.  It's very much easier to make these curry puffs snack with instant pastry for if I were to make the pastries from scratch it's going to be very tedious.  Also, shaping and baking them in a muffin pan is less time consuming.  Enjoy!
