How Spicy is Korean Pork?

How spicy you make your Korean pork depends entirely on the brand of gochujang you use. That said, the majority of types of gochujang have a mild flavor so the spice shouldn’t be too overwhelming. That said if you do want to turn up the spice, feel free to add in some additional ingredients like hot chili powder or sriacha.

What’s the Difference Between Sesame oil and Olive oil?

The main difference between these two cooking oils is the taste with sesame oil having a nuttier flavor while olive oil has a more buttery flavor. Depending on your tastes you can buy regular sesame oil for a milder flavor or toasted sesame oil for a stronger taste.

Another easy recipe that uses sesame oil is this Hoisin Shrimp with Rice and Quinoa Shrimp meal.

How to Crush Garlic?

You will firstly want to finely chop your garlic and then use the flat of the blade to crush it, working your way across the entire pile. Once you have done this, scrape everything up and repeat the process again until you have a paste like substance. For best results try throwing some salt into the mix. 

Once you have properly mastered how to crush your garlic, try mixing it into a recipe like this Singapore Rice.
