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

  • 250 gm thinly sliced pork
  • 1.1/2  Tbsp Sunchang Ssamjang (seasoned bean paste)

  • 1/2  tsp lightly toasted sesame seeds ( I used black sesame seeds)

  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!

Eel soup

This is an ABC soup with a difference.  Yes, there's fish in this soup ..... added a block of eel in it.  Curiosity was what prompted me to cook this soup.  I asked the fishmonger what is the best way to prepare this fish and he said that this eel makes a very tasty soup and I can't agree  more! Sweet and tasty soup with no fishy smell at all! Recipe for Eel Soup Ingredients 350 gm eel 2 carrots, cut into cubes 2 tomatoes,cut into wedges 3 onions, cut into wedges 2.5 lt of water 20  white peppercorns, crushed Seasalt to taste Method Clean up the fish, set aside. Put the water into a pot, bring to a boil and add in the carrots, tomatoes, onions and peppercorns. Simmer for a while and add in the eel. Cover, lower the heat to medium low and let the soup simmer for about 1.1/2 hours. Add salt to taste. Ladle and serve immediately.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜焖五花肉

Mui Choy is preserved mustard greens and there are two types, one is salty while the other is sweet.  There are many ways of cooking mui choy with pork belly.  Instead of braising, you can steam it with minced pork but here I am using only the sweet mui choy and I braised the pork belly with it.  This is a flavourful dish and you can serve it with plain rice or plain porridge. Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy   ~    梅菜焖五花肉 Ingredients  400 gm pork belly cut into bite size 100 gm  preserved sweet mui choy 3 cloves of garlic 2 slices ginger Seasoning for the pork belly 1 Tbsp dark soya sauce 1/4 Tbsp sugar 1/4 Tbsp sesame oil 1/4 Tbsp oyster sauce 1/2 tsp pepper 1/8 tsp light soya sauce Method Season the pork belly for about an hour or more.  Set aside. Soak the mui choy for 45 mins., rinse and squeeze dry.  Cut into slices Heat some oil in the wok, fry the mui choy.  Add in the ginger slices.  Stir-fry. Add in the pork  belly, fry for a while and
