Korean Kimchee Pork

Place the chilli and soya bean pastes into a large bowl and mix together. Add the cubed pork and stir well to coat all the pieces.

Set aside to marinate for 30 minutes. (pork can also be marinated the day before for even greater depth of flavour)

Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the sliced onions and begin to stir fry until the onions start to colour. Turn down the heat and cook gently until golden brown, this will take about 10-15 minutes.

Stir in the garlic and cook for a further minute.

Spoon the onions into your crockpot bowl, add the marinated pork, kimchee, spring onions, sliced mushrooms and 100ml of water.

Stir well, covering with the lid.
