Very Spicy Potato Jijimi

Spicy Jijimi (savory Korean pancakes) with hot green chili peppers and pork. This is the most popular recipe in our family. It's perfect with beer.

Ingredients: 2 to 3 servings

Potatoes
2 to 3
Katakuriko
1 tablespoon
Grated garlic
1 clove
Salt
a small pinch
Thinly sliced pork
70 g
Hot green chili peppers
1 to 2

Steps

1. Cut up the pork into easy to eat pieces. Slice the chili peppers into thin rounds. Grate the potato into a bowl and mix with the katakuriko, a pinch of salt, and grated garlic.
2. Heat some sesame oil in a frying pan and saute the pork and chili pepper. When the pork is halfway cooked turn it over, and add the contents of the bowl from step 1 into the frying pan.
3. Cook until both sides are brown over medium heat (about 3 minutes on each side). Enjoy with your favorite sauce.
4. Our family recipe for an easy dipping sauce: 2 tablespoons ponzu sauce, 3 drops of sesame oil, 1 teaspoon gochujang spicy Korean paste, a little ichimi spice, and a little lemon juice or vinegar.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love jijimi. I was looking for a way to make jijimi without flour when I was on a diet, and got to this method.
You can add anything you want to the basic batter, but my family likes spicy food so this is what we use. ♡
