Vegan Spicy Korean BBQ Pork Bulgogi
Serves 4 with rice
1 to 1 1/2 lbs vegan faux pork (I used Morning Star Steak Strips & a vegan pork belly)
1 small onion – sliced
1 small apple – peeled
2 TBS jarred minced garlic or 6-8 cloves minced
2 TBS chopped ginger
1 TBS crushed red pepper
2 TBS Gochujang (buy some here – http://amzn.to/2zdE4e8)
1 tsp black pepper
3 TBS brown sugar
1 TBS soy sauce (or tamari or liquid aminos) (buy some here – http://amzn.to/2gY3S3z)
1/2 tsp sesame oil
3 TBS rice wine or mirin (buy some here – http://amzn.to/2yr3NQX)
1/2 to 1 cup slivered carrots (optional)
GARNISH – fresh mint, sliced scallions, cilantro, sesame seeds, and serve with cooked rice or in lettuce cups)
In a blender or food processor, blend 3/4 of the onion (reserve 1/4), the apple, garlic, ginger, crushed red pepper, Gochujang, pepper, 2 TBS sugar (reserving 1 TBS), soy sauce & sesame oil.
Heat this sauce in a large frying pan or a wok. Add the faux meat. Cook until the sauce reduces & begins to cling to the faux pork. Add the remaining 1/4 onion, carrots (if using), remaining TBS brown sugar & a splash of water. When the onions & carrots are soft, serve over rice or in lettuce cups. Garnish with either cilantro, mint sprigs, some sesame seeds or scallion slices.
