Yield: Makes 2 servings


  • 6.5 ounces pork, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sake
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons potato starch
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 4 ounces kimchi
  • 4 ounces soy bean sprouts
  • 1 scallion (finely chopped)


  1. Add the pork, sake and soy sauce to a small bowl and stir to combine. Add the potato starch and mix in well.
  2. Heat the sesame oil in a frying pan over medium-heat until hot.
  3. Add the marinated pork to the pan. Use a spatula to break up the pork so there are no clumps and spread the pork into a thin layer. Let the pork brown on one side and then stir fry until it’s about 80% cooked.
  4. Add the kimchi and stir-fry until the pork is well coated with the juices from the kimchi.
  5. Add the bean sprouts and stir-fry until the bean sprouts are cooked through and there is no liquid left in the pan.
  6. Adjust salt to taste.
  7. Garnish with the scallions and serve.
