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.

    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.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
