My favourite flavours are Asian… I love Indian, Thai, Chinese and Korean. They use simple ingredients and make them taste amazing. If properly done the spice does not have to burn the roof of your mouth off (my partner might not agree with this) but give you a really tasty glow, as quite a few celebrity chefs put it “A party in your mouth”.
This is a simple recipe for a Korean style marinade, resulting in melt in your mouth delicious pork.
You can alter the spicing to suit your own taste so play around with it.
Helpful Hint: Do not absent mindedly lick the spoon that you use for the Sriracha… Pain…LOL
KOREAN STYLE PORK
500g-700g/ 1-1 1/2 pounds pork cubed
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup coconut aminos (soy sauce substitute)
1 tbsp honey (you need to have a little sweetness but you could sub it)
4 cloves garlic minced
1/2 tsp miso paste (I know it’s soy beans but it’s only a little bit for taste)
1 tsp sesame paste (Tahini)
1 tsp lemon grass paste
1 tsp ginger minced or ginger paste
1 tbsp sriracha (the best spicy sauce ever)
black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 200c/400f degrees.
In a bowl mix together the coconut aminos, honey, garlic, ginger, miso, lemon grass, sesame paste and sriracha, stir in the pork making sure all pieces are well covered then let marinade for at least an hour.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet/wok for medium high heat. Add pork without marinade and cook for about 5 minutes or until it gets a nice brownish colour all over. Pour the remaining marinade over and Cook another 5 minutes.
Continue cooking it in the skillet/wok cooking until the sauce has almost disappeared and you are getting charred areas on the pork, this will take 10-15 minutes.
Serve with cauliflower rice or vegetable noodles or green beans or salad. You could even have it with some low Carb wraps.
