The Easiest Korean Spicy Pork Stir-Fry You’ll Ever Make

February 25, 2019

Spicy pork stir-fry is a classic Korean dish for good reason: Its heat is counterbalanced with just the right amount of sweet, along with green onions and bean sprouts for texture. It’s also a sage economical choice made with inexpensive cuts of pork that are conveniently loaded with flavor because of its higher fat content.

Korean American blogger and chef,?Selina?Lee, who teaches Korean home cooking at the?Banchan Workshop?in Oakland, California, shares her riff on the classic dish. A time-saving pro tip: “Opt for thin-cut pork, which you can marinate the day-of instead of overnight with thicker cuts of meat,” suggests Selina.
