I had just left the workplace where many Korean restaurants are found accumulatively together. And I believe that one of my greatest miss from the old workplace is that I will miss the Korean food there where we often had our around $10 Korean set lunches. Because of that, I try to cook up more Korean fare at home nowadays to make up for that miss and also make myself sick of Korean food for the time being so that I will not miss them for a long time ! Talking about reverse psychology, this must be it !!
I always love the highly prized Korean set lunches around Amoy Street where we get to indulge in one set lunch with free flow of small dishes to go along. And one of the most highly anticipated set lunch is the Korean Pork Bulgogi. So here I am, preparing it directly from home and serving it on a hotplate too, exactly the feel from the Korean restaurant !!
It’s essentially quite an easy feat to cook up. Slice the pork collar thinly, marinate and grill or stir fried and serving it alongside with sauteed onions and garnishing it with some sesame seeds.
Tadah ! Loving this dish always but hopefully I can move on to the new job without feeling emotional about the old workplace anymore !
