1. Finely chop the onions a little finer than usual, place in a bowl, mix with vegetable oil, cover with plastic wrap, microwave at 500W for about 3 minutes, and let cool.
2. Cut the carrots and sweet potatoes vertically into 6 sticks, run them quickly under water, wrap in plastic wrap, and microwave for about 40-50 seconds at 500W (they should be firm). Peel the hard stalk of asparagus, and cut 2 sticks into 6 equal portions. Do not microwave the asparagus.
3. Add all of the ○ ingredients to the ground pork, and mix well until it all clumps together. Divide the mixed meat into 18 equal portions, wrap around the ends of the vegetable sticks with your hands, and squeeze tightly.
4. Heat a nonstick pan without oil, and cook over a low medium heat until they have cooked through. They cook up nicely from the grease that comes out of the meat, but add oil if the meat sticks to the pan.
5. Please make sure to also properly cook the top portion of the horsetail . If it looks like it is about to burn while cooking, reduce to low heat, and cook the meat all the way through.
6. Once they have cooled, arrange in a box covered in lettuce, and eat with mustard and ketchup, gojuchang, mayonnaise, lemon, etc.! Let's go for a drive!
7. Now, it is time for a long-awaited lunch . It tastes great eaten by itself, but try eating it with something else as well .You can wrap it up in nori seaweed with rice, or wrap it in bread, and it will be delicious.
8. Eh!! Do they look like someone you know??
