  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • ½ cup gochujang (Korean hot pepper paste)

  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic

  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root

  • 2 tablespoons red pepper flakes

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 3 green onions, cut into 2 inch pieces

  • ½ yellow onion, cut into 1/4-inch thick rings

  • 1 (2 pound) pork loin, cut into 1/4 inch slices

  • ¼ cup canola oil


  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!
