Prep Ingredients

  • Chop the onion in half. Then cut the onion into thin pieces. Also cut the spring onion into small pieces.

Make Marinade

  • Take out a large mixing bowl and put in the pork pieces.
  • Mix in all of the listed ingredients for the marinade.
  • Use your hands (and plastic gloves) to coat the meat thoroughly.

Grill Meat

  • Take out a frying pan and put on a medium heat. If you have kimchi - cook that first. Once-pan is hot, drop in some sesame oil and cook the kimchi until it gets some browning on the tips.
  • Then put vegetable oil in the the pan. Place in the pork pieces. Cook the pork until it is 90% cooked.
  • Then put in the onions. Once you see that the meat is fully cook (light sear on the meat) - turn off the heat.
  • Add the green onions in. Garnish with sesame seeds. Serve with a bowl of hot rice!


  • Cook the meat on a medium heat. When cooking the meat, use a chopstick or a wooden utensil and move around the pork pieces frequently. This will help avoid burning the marinade.
