How Spicy is Korean Pork?

How spicy you make this dish 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. If you do want to turn up the heat in this dish, feel free to add in some additional ingredients like hot chili powder or Sriracha sauce.

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

The main difference between these two cooking oils is that one is made from sesame seeds and the other from olives. Sesame oil has a nuttier flavor while olive oil has a more buttery flavor. Regular sesame oil has a milder flavor and toasted sesame oil has a stronger taste.

How to Mince Garlic

To mince a clove of garlic, begin by crushing it using the flat blade of a knife. You can then remove its papery skin. Then, slice the clove lengthwise. Turn the slices and chop them roughly. Once you have done this, scrape everything up and repeat the process, chopping the garlic until it is very finely minced.

Once you have properly mastered how to mince garlic, try mixing it into a recipe like this Garlic-Butter Kale Rice.
