Korean-Style Spicy Pork Ribs


I always wish that one day, I could have enough money to travel the world and taste everything most exotic from each country I visit, like a huge “food tour”, that’d be over awesome !! And one of the destinations on my must-visit list is Korea, I watched so many Korean dramas and got obsessed with Korean cuisine, all these colorful, tasty dishes and the way Koreans enjoy their traditional dishes.

For today’s dish, Korean-Style Spicy Pork Ribs, this isn’t a traditional recipe, I was inspired by some Korean ingredients and flavors and came up with the idea of combining them with what I love from my own Vietnamese cooking base. These shiny and beautiful ribs are the result, and they was a hit ! They are tender, spicy (of course) and flavorful, and quickly became my boyfriend’s favorite 😉 The marinade itself can be used for any kind of meat, so please feel free to change ribs into chicken, beef or even seafood if you’d like to.

INGREDIENT LIST (for 500g pork ribs)

5 spring onions, washed and trimmed
2 red shallots
3-4 cloves of garlic
4 tbs Gochujang (Korean red pepper paste)
2 tbs soy sauce
2 tbs white sugar/ brown sugar/ honey
Juice of half a lemon
Pepper
Vegetable oil/ Sesame oil

METHOD:

1. Preparing the ingredients: cut spring onions into 5-6 cm pieces, mince garlic, thinly slice red shallots and cut pork ribs into small pieces.

2. In a mixing bowl, mix together all the ingredients (except ribs and spring onions) until well combined with a little bit oil. Gently put in pork ribs, mix well to rub in the marinade, set aside for at least 2-3 hours (or you can put them in the fridge overnight for more flavors)

3. Heat a pan over medium high heat, put in the pork ribs and constantly stir until they are cooked through, shiny and the marinade is thicken a little bit. Stir in spring onions and turn off the heat. Serve hot with Korean side dishes or with steamed white rice.

Now it’s your turn to give this recipe a try, and if you did, I’d love to hear what you thought about it,

Good luck and bon appetit,
