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)

  • 450 gm pork, thinly sliced
  • 2  Tbsp soya sauce
  • 2  Tbsp sesame oil
  • 2  Tbsp honey
  • 1  tsp sugar
  • 2.1/2  Tbsp Pork Bulgogi marinade
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 10 cloves garlic minced
  • 1  Tbsp chopped ginger
  • 3 to 4 stalks of spring onions cut into 2 inch lengths
  • Lightly toasted sesame seeds
  1. Combine all the sauces and mix well.
  2. Add in the minced garlic and ginger.  Mix well.
  3. Add in the sliced pork, onions and spring onions, mix well.
  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.
  6. Serve hot with rice.


  1. This looks delicious. I love Korean food, and yours looks just like those at the restaurant.

    1. Thank you. It's easy to prepare, so why don't you give it a shot?

  2. Cheah, that looks delicious! I love Korean food a lot :)

    1. Thank you, Phong Hong. Since you like Korean food, better to DIY, so much more economical!

  3. Cheah, I also cooked this bulgogi with chicken yesterday. I love it with lettuce wraps!

    1. Yes, I'm going to try with chicken next and have it with lettuce wraps too. Waiting to see your pics :))

  4. This sounds delicious and look it too! i have yet to try this Korean dish!

  5. Hi Cheah, must be very flavourful and I know you are good in cooking meat the healthy way. I like your style.

    1. It's delicious, Kimmy. I like to cook meat in a simple and fuss-free way, the less work, the better :)!

  6. I am into Korean food, Kdrama and Kpop! Your tweji bulgogi looks yummy!

    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 :)

  7. Looks like something I will love too!

  8. This looks delicious! I have never tried cooking Korean food at home!

    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!

  9. i'm not sure whether i hv tasted bulgogi or not..sometimes cannot remember all its names but looks good leh..and i didnt even know there's bulgogi sauce available :)

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

  10. Thank you Cheah! I think I might be able to make this on my own now that I have followed the links you have provided. I'm so excited! I hope Marion will give it a try but it sounds to spicy for her, lol...It's very sweet of you to lead me in the right direction. I'm off to watch that video:)

I've tasted vanilla slice before but not Kaya Slice.  My first taste of Kaya Slice was at a fusion cafe in Perth and the combination was truly wonderful.  So when I returned from my vacation, I just had to give it a try with my homemade kaya and believe me, it's real yummy especially if you are a kaya fan.  Serve this as a dessert to jazz up your reunion dinner during this coming Chinese New Year!
