Bulgogi pork tacos with nashi slaw


Blame LA's Roy Choi and his food trucks for this Korean-Mexican fusion. There's good reason this style of cooking has become so popular - it just tastes so good.

You'll need

12 white corn tortillas To serve: kimchi, thinly sliced spring onion and roasted sesame seeds   Bulgogi pork 250 ml Korean soy sauce (see note) 125 ml (½ cup) mirin 60 gm brown sugar 1 tbsp gochujang (see note) 1 tbsp finely grated ginger 500 gm pork neck, thinly sliced For drizzling: grapeseed oil   Ssämjang sauce 1½ tbsp each ssämjang (Korean soy bean and chilli paste, see note), rice vinegar and sesame oil   Nashi slaw 300 gm thinly sliced white cabbage 1 nashi, thinly sliced 1 spring onion, thinly sliced 1 tbsp grapeseed oil 3 tsp rice vinegar 2 tsp sesame oil 1 tsp finely grated ginger
