Delicious hot and spicy Korean bean paste pork

One of my top favourite ingredients is Korean bean paste, both the hot one and the not hot one. They are great for marinades or added to soup. This delicious pork dish is very simple and easy. I think it goes best with rice and some stir fry vegetables. Of course you can scoop this over noodles or pasta too if you like. I’m sure it will be just as delicious. You can use other types of meat too I’m sure though I have not tried as this is the first time I cooked this dish.

Dish up and serve hot with rice and a vegetable stir fry like bok choy, one of my favourite vegetables. I’m sure you can eat more rice like me….*wink*.

Cooking and baking is actually fun. If you are already into cooking and baking, keep it up and have fun. But if you haven’t, for some reasons, it’s time to start. Home cooked food does not need to be very elaborate to be delicious. Best of all, it’s many times cheaper than eating out and much cleaner and more nutritious as you are in control of the ingredients.

Most of the recipes on my blog are very simple and easy with health always on my mind. They are suitable for busy parents or those who find cooking rather intimidating. It’s also to inspire my girls to cook more healthy food. Has it worked? An astounding ‘YES’! So, you see, I’m actually a happy mother…*BIG smiles*.

I wonder what that tastes like… Maybe I can try with our canned bean paste - my missus loves those with porridge.

I agree with you about home-cooked food. And this dish looks delicious! I think I’ll be stopping by at the shops for some doenjang after work today. Thanks for the recipe!

It looks very spicy to me ….

I love the spicy Korean bean paste, but I don’t find it very spicy. I always double the amount that the recipe calls for. It’s delicious flavour wise though. Your marinade sounds yummylicious. :D Not a huge pork fan, but I know I could substitute with chicken or even shrimp. ;)
