Tuesday’s Cupful: Background on Korean Spicy Pork Stir-Fry

Korean comfort food

The Mixed Stew gained inspiration for this dish from traditional Jae YookBokum aka Spicy Pork Stir-Fry.  Expect to find different variations but main ingredients always include: pork loin, pork, Gochujang (red pepper paste), garlic, onion, and veggies.  Carrots, peppers, green beans, and nappa cabbage are popular veggies for this dish.  Feel free to substitute veggies as the different seasons may allow.  Our version is very rustic compared to more complex recipes.  For example, some recipes also call for soy sauce to augment the red bean paste.  The sheer heat and spiciness of this dish means first-timers should sample it with care.  We recommend having ice-cold beverages on hand.
