Around the World in 12 Dishes: Korea Inspired Pork Patties

I am happy to be back with Around the World in 12 Dishes post from last month when we travelled to South Korea! Around the World in 12 Dishes : season 2 was originally created by Glittering Muffins and there are total of 13 blogs participating in this project. The idea is to “visit” 1 country a month (12 countries in a year) by exploring the cooking culture and craft. We all cook 1 (or more) dish with our children and some of us make crafts.




This time it took me really a while to decide what is that I can make for my picky eater than she will equally appreciate and that would resemble Korean cuisine. I looked through desserts (which very much resemble Chinese ones), vegetable, rice and meat dishes. And finally I found this recipe of the Korean Pork Patties from Marishia’s Kreative Kitchen.

This recipe reminded me very much of Russian meat patties which we often make at home and so I was very excited this was something I could finally make! My recipe is different from the one I found.

What you need:

200-300 gr of minced pork

1-2 grated carrots

1 grated onion

200-300 gr of cooked rice

1-2 beaten eggs

corn or wheat flower (2-3 tablespoons)


oil for frying

How to make it:



1. Mix together onions, carrots, pork and rice. Add some salt to taste, black pepper if you like.

Mince well till it becomes one sticky mass




2. Put eggs and flower in 2 different plates. You will dip the patties into egg first

and then in flower. It gets messy!



3. Form the patties. Heat up the oil in the frying pan and fry patties

on both sides, till golden brown.



4. Once all patties are slightly fried, put them back into the pan, sprinkles the remaining carrots on top,

add some herbs if you like, add some salted water and put on medium low fire for about 15 minutes.

Then lower the fire and cook for another 35-45 minutes.

Serve your patties with rice or vegetables.  I must say my whole family enjoyed them. Even though my picky eater made faces at first, she really got into eating them right after the first bite! And miss A ate them too!

This time around I had no chance to capture any shots of miss A “helping” me around the kitchen. But here are 2 animated pictures of my happy girls!



I actually really like Korean BBQ and that peanut sauce served with it. Thinking of it makes me hungry!
