Korean Spicy Pork Bulgogi


Looks like I've developed a craving for Korean food!  Here's my first attempt at preparing Pork Bulgogi with this Pork Bulgogi marinade which is supposed to be not too spicy but yet we do find it to be quite spicy.  'Bul' in Korean means 'fire' and 'Gogi' is 'meat', so literally it means 'Fire meat'.  I didn't BBQ or grill to 'fire' the meat  and instead just pan-fry the overnight marinated bulgogi.  




This porky dish is delicious and just wonderful to go with plain white rice or lettuce wraps.


 Recipe for Korean Spicy Pork Bulgogi  (adapted from  'here with slight modification)

  4. Cover with cling wrap and let chill in the fridge for 1 to 5 hours or preferably overnight.
  5. Saute the marinated meat in a pan with a bit oil, work in small batches.

    1. I'm only into Korean costume drama, the modern ones, I find that all the male and female actors and actresses look alike, very hard to differentiate :)

    1. I thought it's difficult to DIY Korean food, but now that I've tried, it's not so difficult after all. If I can do it, so can you.... so much cheaper than eating in the Korean restaurants!

    1. I agree with you. The names are a tongue twister. You can find an assortment of these sauces in Aeon supermarket.

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Pandan Ombre Butter Cake ~ 班蘭牛油蛋糕

Whenever I want to make a butter cake, Mrs. Ng's butter cake recipe will come to my mind.  Her recipe is foolproof and you can use it as a basic recipe and play around with variations of flavours to your liking.  Today, I'm sharing with you a Pandan Ombre Butter Cake.  I've used pandan paste instead of pandan juice as I need to have a distinct green colour to bring out the 'Ömbre' effect, which is from a darker to a lighter shade of green.  I'm pleased with the result and the texture of this cake is soft and moist and it still stays in this manner even after the third day, kept in an airtight container.

To Fu( Beancurd) Bridge ~ 跨桥豆腐

When I was recommended to try this dish in a restaurant, I was both hesitant and at the same time intrigued by its name.  I've heard of the song 'Bridge over troubled water' but Tofu crossing the bridge?  So to satisfy everyone's curiosity, we agreed to give it a try.  It's a nutritious dish with a good source of protein in the Tofu pork and egg all in one.  It was just tasty and delicious to go with a bowl of steaming hot white rice!
