Since I discovered Korean Red Pepper paste Gochujang for Korean Ribs , I have been craving its heady mix sweet hot salty and spicy.
Trimmings from Fridays ribs seemed perfect for a Sunday evening self assembly meal. The spicy grilled pork is can be assembled at the table in handy serving spoons of little gem lettuce leaves, with boiled rice , sliced spring onions and toasted sesame seeds,
As an eating method this is good , I want to try it through the summer , grilled harissa lamb with a little tzatziki ( cucumber , mint and yoghurt) in chicory , garlic beef with salsa , prawns with thousand island in iceberg endless possibilities
Gochujang Pork in Little Gem Lettuce
Enough for four as a starter two as a main.
200g of diced pork (pork shoulder or leg would work well too, even pork belly with longer gentler cooking)
1 tbsp of gochujan red pepper paste
1 clove of garlic finely chopped
1 tsp of honey
1 tsp of sesame seeds
- Mix together the marinade (except the sesame seeds and roll the pork around in half the marinade and leave for a few hours
- Put the pork on skewers and grill on a medium heat for 15 minutes turning every few minutes and basting with more of the marinade.
- Just before removing from the grill, dash over some sesame seeds for the final grilling seconds
