Korean Pork Recipe


First of all, I can not take credit for this recipe, my boy Emeril taught me how to make it. However, I will say it is DELICIOUS! My whole family likes it! I must tell you though, that my picture is not very appetizing. It needs a little green, no? Well, you're supposed to wrap it all up in Boston, Bibb or Butter lettuce, and make like a Korean burrito. However, I can not find that lettuce here in back woods country USA. Strictly iceberg...sooooo......we don't do it. LOL However, without further ado, here is the recipe:

After you purchase your pork tenderloin, be sure to pop it in the freezer for about 30-45 minutes, so it's easy to slice in 1/4" thick slices!!

Hot Sauce
(This goes on the pork before you eat it. I don't like hot stuff, so I don't put it on there, and it's still delicious!)
2 TBSP Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
2 TBSP of sesame oil
4 tsp honey

Pork Marinade
A good 45 minutes to an hour in this marinade should do it. Last time I made this I marinated it overnight, and it didn't make a difference.
1/4 c soy sauce (we use low sodium)
1 TBSP sugar
4 tsp Sesame Oil
1/2 c chopped green onions
1 TBSP minced garlic
1 TBSP minced ginger

Whisk these together in a bowl until the sugar dissolves. Pour over pork. Marinate in refrigerator. Cook in skillet in a few drizzles of oil (I use olive, but you can use vegetable).

Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.

Serve with Jasmine rice. If you can find the right lettuce, make the wrap with rice, pork, and a few dabs of the hot sauce. Believe me, you only want a few! LOL

ya know about 15 yrs ago a korean gal would make me the lettuce wraps for my lunch cause I couldnt eat bread or the rice at that time. she would do a different meat each day for me and some broccoli and the sauce was to die for.. I havent been able to find a recipe close to what that ole gal made. I cant wait to try yours!
