How About A Little Korean delight
Have you ever been in the mood to try something different, but was too afraid that it may be difficult to prepare and cook?
Well, then you came to the right place. I have made this recipe sooo simple, that your family and friends will think you took some lessons or bought takeout.
Simple Korean Style Pork Chop
It’s always good when the family’s buzzing around me when I am cooking, I assume it’s because the smell draws them there! Well this is a very simple dish to prepare, just need to remember the marinate the pork chop the night before to ensure the flavor soaks through…
10-12 pieces of thinly sliced pork chops
1 bunch of bok choi, cleaned and cut in half
1 cup of Korean BBQ marinate
Dash of sesame seeds
Dash of salt
The night before, put pork chops in a bowl, pour the marinate over and make sure it’s evenly distributed
Boil water in a small pot, add the salt once water is ready, dump the bok choi in, sit for about 2-3 minutes, take them out and displayed nicely on a dish.
Heat up the oil in a frying pan, fry the pork chops at medium-high heat, there might be splatter so be careful. I fried them in 2 batches; each thin pork chop took about 2-3 minutes on each side.
Once pork chops are done, take them out and stack onto the bok choi, then drizzle some more BBQ marinate on top, also dash of sesame seeds. Serve with white rice immediately.
Chef’s note: You can make your own Korean BBQ sauce, by combining 1 cup Oriental Sweet and Sour sauce, 1/2 cup Bulls-eye BBQ sauce (or any other BBQ sauce you prefer) and 1/2 cup Hoisin sauce.
