  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner!
  • Bapsang (aka Spicy Korean Bulgogi)
  • Description
    • I grew up enjoying "Spicy Korean BBQ" at our local Asian "Dive" restaurant.  When Russ moved to Missouri, from Maine, in 2000... this was one of the first things I introduced him to when he moved here, and he fell in love immediately.  Recently the owner of the Asian restaurant died, so our dreams of enjoying this lovely dish were dashed.  Until I was recently chatting with a friend that used to work there.  He gave me some of the ingredients that he remembered they used to put in it... and that started a few days of digging around on Google.  Russ enjoyed this (pork) on Monday night for dinner.  Leftovers tonight, and requested that I make it using chicken for tomorrow night.  SO... I think maybe he likes it.  Even though during dinner on Monday his nose was running, his eyes were watering and and he kept telling me how fantastic it was.
  • Ingredients
    • 1.5 lb boneless pork shoulder, or pork belly, chilled or frozen for easier slicing (chicken is also a good substitute)
    • 3 stalks green onion, sliced into 2-inch pieces
    • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
    • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
    • 1/4 cup korean red chili paste, gochujang (Sriracha is a good substitute)
    • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 3 tablespoons Mirin (or rice wine)
    • 2 tablespoon sesame oil
    • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 tablespoon canola oil
    • Sesame seed, to garnish
    • Rice, to serve
  • Directions
    • Slice the pork (or chicken) into extremely thin slices, then transfer to a large bowl. This works best when the meat is super cold or partially frozen. Add in all of the ingredients, then mix until the meat is evenly coated with the marinade. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (overnight is best). You can either grill or stir-fry the meat.  Preheat your grill, add meat, and grill for a few minutes until done.  If stir-fying, add meat to pan - being sure not to crowd the pan, stir-fry the meat in batches until slightly crispy on the edges, about 3-4 minutes. If you’re using pork belly, cook for a bit longer, around 6-7 minutes. Sprinkle a bit of sesame seeds on top, then serve with rice!
