Korean Recipes

Whenever I am home for the holidays, I always ask my mom to share the recipes for my favorite dishes. I managed to get two this year and I'm super excited! No pictures this time, but I'll share the recipe for my mom's Korean Spicy Pork Marinade and Korean Sauteed Hot Chili Paste with Pork.

Korean Spicy Pork Marinade(Source: My Mom)
Marinade:3 tablespoons finely chopped onion4 tablespoons gochujang (Korean red pepper paste)1 tablespoon chopped garlic1 teaspoon ginger juice (finely chop some fresh ginger and squeeze out the juice)4 tablespoons soy sauce1 tablespoon mirin2 tablespoons corn syrupground black pepper1 tablespoon sesame seed1 tablespoon sesame seed oil1 tablespoon gochugaru (Korean red pepper flakes)4 tablespoons sugar 
Meat:2 pounds of thinly sliced pork (Found in Korean grocery stores)
Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a medium sized bowl and set aside until needed. Separate the thin slices of pork and sprinkle some sugar in between each slice and refrigerate overnight. Then mix the thinly sliced pork with the marinade and marinate for a few hours. When you want to eat the spicy pork, heat up a skillet until it's really hot and saute the marinated pork in the skillet until it's cooked through. 
Sauteed Hot Chili Paste(Source: My Mom)
1 1/2 cups chopped onion1/2 cup thinly sliced green onion1/2 cup vegetable oil1/3 cup chopped garlic1/2 cup ground pork1/4 cup sugar1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce1 cup gochujang (Korean hot chili paste)
Heat oil in a skillet and saute green onion in the oil for 1 - 2 minutes. Then add the chopped onion and ground pork into the skillet. Use a wooden spoon to break up the pork and keep stirring the pork/onion mixture in the skillet until the meat is cooked. Add the chopped garlic, sugar, and soy sauce to the meat mixture and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the gochujang and mix in with the pork mixture until everything is combined. Cook this for 10 minutes and it'll be done!
