Spicy Ginger Fried Pork
Spicy ginger fried pork, a tasty yet simple pork dish.
1 tsp grated ginger
1 clove garlic minced
1 Tbs miso
1 Tbs mirin
2 tsp gochujang (other other sweet hot sauce)
1/4 lbs thinly sliced pork (should be no thicker than 1/8")
Mix the ginger, garlic, miso, mirin, and gochujang together in a small bowl to make a thin paste. spread the paste on both sides of a piece of meat and set it down on a plate. Cover with another piece of meat and spread some more sauce on top. Continue stacking and saucing until you run out of pork.
Get a heavy bottomed pan or cast iron skillet very hot over medium heat. If the pork you’re using has a lot of fat you shouldn’t need any oil, but if it’s leaner go ahead and add some to the pan and swirl it around. Scrape off any excess sauce and fry each piece of pork until brown on one side, flip then fry on the other. The pork will have a tendency to curl up, so use a spatula to press it down.
When the pork is cooked, transfer to a plate and serve immediately with white rice.
