Spicy Korean Pork Stir-fry

This Korean-inspired stir-fry packs an absolute punch: it’s got spice, tender strips of pork and umami in spades! Mix it up with chicken thighs instead of pork if you fancy a different take on the dish.

Ingredients

400g (14 oz) pork scotch fillets (also known as pork neck or pork shoulder steaks), thinly sliced

1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Spicy marinade:

3 tablespoons gochujang*

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tsp white sugar

1 teaspoon finely grated ginger

1 tablespoon sesame oil

Steps
  • Step 1

    In a large bowl mix together the marinade ingredients. Add pork slices to the marinade and toss to coat.

  • Step 2

    Heat the vegetable oil in a wok over medium-high heat.  Add the garlic and onion and stir-fry for 10 seconds.  Add the pork and all the marinade. Spread the pork out in the pan and allow it to sear for about half a minute before stir-frying. Repeat the searing and stir-frying process another 2-3 times or until the pork is just cooked. Then add the carrot and spring onion and stir-fry for another half a minute. Turn the heat off and sprinkle with sesame seeds and toss through the lemon zest.

  • Step 3

    Serve with steamed rice and sprinkle with extra sesame seeds.

  • Notes
    Notes:

    – Gochujang is a fermented Korean chilli paste. You can find it in the Asian aisle of most supermarkets or from an Asian grocer.
