One of my favorite pork dishes (Easily Top 3!)
Course: Easy
Servings: 2 people


Garlic Soy Sauce Pork Strips

  • Pork neck - 400 grams pork chops are ok too! 
  • Garlic - a big handful no need to be exact
  • Mirim - 1 Tablespoon or use white wine
  • Ginger powder - 1/2 teaspoon Or use freshly grated ginger
  • Herb Salt - 1/2 Tablespoon Or use regular salt
  • Sesame seeds - few shakes for garnish, optional

Braising Sauce

  • Soy Sauce - 3 Tablespoons
  • Sugar - 1 Tablespoon
  • Honey - 2 Tablespoons
  • Minced garlic - 1/2 Tablespoon
  • Oyster sauce - 1 Tablespoon
  • Mirim - 2 Tablespoons
  • Sesame oil - 1 Tablespoon
  • Water - 1/4 cup

Doenjang Chili Peppers

  • Mild green chili peppers - 6-7
  • Minced garlic - 1/2 Tablespoon
  • Honey - 1 Tablespoon
  • Doenjang - 1 Tablespoon
  • Gochujang - 1 teaspoon !
  • Sesame oil - 1/2 Tablespoon
  • Sesame seeds - few shakes


Garlic Soy Sauce Pork Strips

  • Cut pork into bite-sized strips. Place into a mixing bowl. Then place in Mirim (1 Tablespoon), Ginger Powder (1/2 teaspoon) and herb salt (1/2 Tablespoon). Use your hands and thoroughly coat the meat. Set the meat aside to marinate for at 15 minutes. 
  • Take out another mixing bowl. Whisk together all of the listed ingredients under "Braising Sauce".
  • Cut the stem part off each garlic clove. Look for any impurities as well (if any). 
  • Place oil into a frying pan. Place on medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, place garlic cloves in. Mix around until they get a slight browning on one side. 
  • Then place in the marinated meat. Allow the meat to develop a slight browning on one side as well. Then place in the braising sauce. Now, reduce the heat to a low heat!
  • Place a lid on the frying pan. And allow it to gently simmer for 15-20 minutes. 
  • Once the sauce thickens up enough (reference video), plate it and garnish with sesame seeds.
  • Serve with a bowl of hot rice and perhaps a fried egg on top :) 

Doenjang Chili Peppers

  • Cut chili peppers into small bite-sized pieces.
  • Take out mixing bowl and thoroughly whisk: Minced garlic (1/2T), Honey (1T), Doenjang (1T), Gochujang (1 teaspoon), Sesame oil (1/2T) and sesame seeds (few shakes).
  • Then mix in the chili peppers and coat each piece evenly. 
  • Bon Appetit! Enjoy the weekend :)
