Korean Chicken Stir-Fry I / Korejska piletina iz woka I

A few weeks ago my BFF brought me a bag of Gochujang – Korean chili paste, so expect to see it used and abused in many dishes to come. As you could already guess from the recipe title, there are more Korean chicken stir-fry recipes I plan on publishing, so be sure to check in soon, if that’s how you roll.

METHOD:

Remove bone and skin from chicken breast, then cut the meat into thin strips. Mix well with Gochujang, soy sauce and salt, so all pieces are coated and allow to rest in a fridge for at least half an hour, but best overnight.

When ready to cook, place empty wok on high heat for a few minutes until it’s thoroughly heated through. Toss the prepared meat in corn starch. Stir-fry the meat on sunflower oil in two or three smaller batches until crispy and slightly charred. As necessary, add a bit more oil to your wok. Remove all the meat from wok and be sure to deglaze the pan with a bit of water. Pour all those delicious juices from the pan over meat and set aside.

Return wok to high heat and add in the remaining tablespoon of oil, then stir-fry red peppers for a few minutes. Add in garlic, ginger and Gochujang, stir and cook for another minute or two. Return in the meat with all its juices, add another teaspoon of soy sauce, sesame oil and water, then stir until everything is combined and heated through. The corn starch remnants from frying the meat will thicken the sauce until it’s nice and glossy. Serve immediately over a bed of cooked rice, or stir in precooked noodles. I used these homemade thick noodles.

Pred par mi je tjedana najbolja frendica donijela paket Gochujanga – korejske chili paste, tako da očekujte da će se taj sastojak pojavljivati u mnogim budućim jelima. Kako ste već mogli pogoditi iz naslova, planiram objaviti još recepata za korejsku piletinu iz woka, pa svakako navratite opet, ako vam se takva klopa sviđa.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 2 porcije / 16,48 kn po porciji / 32,96 kn za sve)

Za meso:

1 pileća prsa (20,00 kn)

1 žlica Gochujanga (1,00 kn)

1 žlica soja sosa (0,50 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

2 žlice kukuruznog škroba (0,30 kn)

3 žlice suncokretovog ulja, podijeljene (0,30 kn)

Za wok:

1 žlica suncokretovog ulja (0,10 kn)

2 crvene paprike roge, tanko narezane (7,50 kn)

6 češnjeva češnjaka, sitno sjeckanih (1,50 kn)

Mali komadić đumbira, sitno sjeckani (0,50 kn)

1 žličica Gochujanga (0,50 kn)

1 žličica soja sosa (0,25 kn)

1 žličica tostiranog sezamovog ulja (0,50 kn)

¼ šalice vode (–)

PRIPREMA:

Odkoštite i skinite kožu sa pilećih prsa, pa narežite meso na tanke trakice. Dobro promiješajte sa Gochujangom, soja sosom i soli tako da su svi komadići mesa obloženi, te ostavite barem pola sata u hladnjaku, a najbolje preko noći.

Kada ste spremni za kuhanje, stavite prazni wok na jaku vatru na par minuta da se dobro ugrije. Pripremljeno meso pomiješajte sa kukuruznim škrobom. Pržite meso na suncokretovom ulju u dvije ili tri manje ture. Po potrebi u wok dodajte malo po malo ulja. Maknite svo meso iz woka i svakako sa malo vode otopite sve što se uhvatilo po woku. Te fine sokove prelijte preko mesa i stavite na stranu.

Vratite wok na jaku vatru i u njega dodajte preostalu žlicu ulja, pa uz miješanje par minuta pržite papriku. Dodajte češnjak, đumbir i Gochujang, promiješajte i kuhajte još minutu-dvije. Vratite u wok meso sa svim sokovima, dodajte još žličicu soja sosa, sezamovo ulje i vodu, pa dobro sve promiješajte i kratko prokuhajte da se sve sjedini i ugrije. Ostaci kukuruznog škroba od prženja mesa će zguznuti umak dok ne bude izvrstan i sjajan. Poslužite odmah preko kuhane riže, ili umiješajte u sve kuhanu tjesteninu. Ja sam upotrijebila ove domaće rezance.
