Sweet Fermented Flour Paste Ground Pork Stir-Fry 甜麵醬炒豬絞肉

Sidetracked. Netflix recently released a Korean mini zombie series called "Kingdom." Several friends already recommended me to watch it. I'll try my best to finish the whole thing at once during Chinese New Year. But, do I look like a big fan of zombie movies? I thought I've been hiding that dark side of mine very well..

Sweet fermented flour paste ground pork stir-fry 甜麵醬炒豬絞肉 -


  • 250 grams coarse ground pork
  • 2 1/2 cups cubed wild rice stem (or other type of bamboo shoot)
  • 2 cups cubed king oyster mushroom
  • 1 onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 stalk scallion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sweet fermented flour paste
  • 1 tablespoon spicy fermented bean paste
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


Peel and finely chop the garlic cloves. Destem and chop the scallion. Peel and cube the onion. Peel and grate the ginger.

Cube the king oyster mushrooms. Trim and cube the wild rice stems. If can't find such ingredient, other type of bamboo shoot works too.

Drizzle enough olive oil in the pan and turn to medium high heat. Add in onion along with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. Cook till the onion turns translucent.

Add in garlic and grated ginger, cook till aromatic.

Transfer the pork to the pan, give it a quick stir and wait till about 70% cooked through.

Add in wild rice stem or bamboo shoots, king oyster mushroom, sweet fermented flour paste, spicy fermented bean paste, oyster sauce, and Sriracha. Mix till incorporated, and cook till nearly dried up and the sauce has been reduced.

Mix in half of the chopped scallion and give it a quick stir.

Plate and garnish with the other half of chopped scallion. Preferably serve with steamy hot rice.

Back to that zombie series, I checked on IMDb, 8.5, such high rating! It's time to stick my butt back to the sofa with crispy chicken on one hand and boba milk tea on the other.
