  1. Stir together the vinegar, soy sauce, hot pepper paste, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, black pepper, sugar, green onions, and yellow onion in a large bowl. Mix in the pork slices, mixing well until completely coated. Place into a resealable plastic bag, squeeze out any excess air, seal, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 3 hours.
  2. Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork slices in batches, and cook until no longer pink in the center, and lightly browned on the outside, about 5 minutes per batch. Be careful when cooking the meat, the spicy fumes will hurt your nose!


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

To bulk it up, you can add sliced carrots, green peppers, and/or bok choy to it before you fry it. For best flavor, it is traditional to use pork butts instead of pork loin. You must also add s...

Halved the recipe, and subbed 3T of Thai red chile sauce. Still plenty spicy! Pork slices (I used tenderloin instead of loin) cooked up in mere minutes. I cooked in batches, sliding done slic...

I bought a huge pork loin and cut it into 4 pieces. I put a different marinade from the site on each one and froze them. This one turned out the best of the 4. Very good flavor.

this is my favorite korean dish! It's so amazing. Now i don't have to wait to go to my mother's house to have it (she's korean) I can make it on my own. Gochujang has such an awesome flavor, i s...
