          Jeyuk-bokkeum (spicy stir-fried pork) is one of the best-known dishes cooked with Gochujang. It is a stir-fried dish with thick slices of a pork shoulder marinated in hot Gochujang with minced ginger. Before the 1950s, it was reportedly made using only scallion, black pepper and soy sauce, and the current form of Jeyuk-bokkeum marinated in Gochujang is believed to have appeared sometime afterwards.

          Jeyuk-bokkeum, an Affordable Dish Served in Generous Portions
          Koreans associate beef with Bulgogi and pork with Jeyuk-bokkeum. Jeyuk-bokkeum appears on the menu of virtually every Korean restaurant in the world and has won the hearts of diners of all nationalities. Gochujang eliminates any unpleasant smell of pork and tenderizes the fatty meat. Because pork fat contains a high percentage of highly unsaturated fatty acids such as oleic acid and linoleic acid, pork tastes best when cooked over moderate heat. Pork has eight to ten times more vitamin B1 than beef, and its digestion rate can be as high as 95 percent. Young people on limited budgets favor Jeyuk-bokkeum, because it is a hearty meat dish yet inexpensive. Youngsters often list it as their favorite food, and many Korean mothers will talk about how their son can ‘finish a pound of Jeyuk-bokkeum on a sitting.’

          How to Obtain a Lustrous Glaze Preheat the pan before sautéing the marinated pork. To prevent the dish from getting soupy, keep the lid off the pan to let the liquids in the meat and vegetables evaporate. It is important to control the heat, because too much will burn the sauce yet leave the inside of the meat uncooked. Set aside some of the sauce and later add to the pan. Toss immediately before serving, in order to coat the meat and create a glazed appearance. Add perilla leaves for a zesty flavor and fragrance. Half-split garlic cloves are another great addition. Garlic is rich in allicin, which has powerful anti-bacterial and anti-coagulant effects.

          Pork helps prevent cholesterol from sticking to the walls of arteries, strengthening blood vessels, and combating a number of lifestyle diseases. In addition, its vitamin B1 content is ten times greater than that of beef.
