Pork Essentials: Asian Influence Spicy Pork

This recipe has its roots in a Korean beef dish; however, I subbed out the beef for pork, and made a few changes to the spices to suit my taste.

Serve this over some nice long-grain white rice, or place on top of a bed of butter lettuce; either way, it is a wonderful, and quick-to-make dish. As a matter of fact, if you already have some freshly-ground pork, you can have this dish out to your hungry guests in a quick 30 minutes.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Pork Essentials: Asian Influence Spicy Pork

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. THE SAUCE
  4. Add all the sauce ingredients to a non-reactive bowl.
  5. Whisk to thoroughly combine, and reserve.
  6. Chef’s Tip: If you are using the optional srirachia sauce, add a bit at a time, and then test for heat.
  7. THE PORK
  8. Add the grapeseed oil to a large skillet over medium heat.
  9. When the oil begins to shimmer, add the ground pork, and cook for 2 – 3 minutes.
  10. Chef’s Note: I grind my own meats; however, you can either get a pound of ground pork, or you can have your butcher grind a nice lean piece of tenderloin for you.
  11. Add the minced garlic, and continue to cook (stirring often), until all the pink is gone from the pork, about 3 – 4 additional minutes.
  12. Chef’s Note: Use a wooden spoon to break up the ground pork.
  13. Add the sauce to the pan, and lightly simmer, for 5 – 7 minutes.
  14. PLATE/PRESENT
  15. Serve with butter lettuce, or over a plate of steamy rice. Enjoy.
  16. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
