Korean Bbq Sauce and Pork Sliders

Posted by in 4th of July, Cooking, Lunch/Dinner, Sauces/Dressings | 0 comments











Hello & Happy Monday!!






I can’t remember the last time I had pork, nor do I ever crave it/know how to prepare it..




But when I received the new Gardein pork bites I was slightly intrigued as to what the taste would be like since I’m a HUGE fan of their products as well as what I could potentially create with it. 




The funny thing is, although consuming meat is still some what of the social norm, for us long term plant based people though, when we even try to work with faux meat products..




We sometimes forget exactly what we are even supposed to do with it (honesty)






So while concocting a new Korean BBQ marinade it occurred to me that this faux Gardein pork would be a perf combination!!







If you have an affinity for Pork Sliders or simply love a quick and easy Korean Bbq Sauce that goes well with just about any vegan dish.. 



You HAVE to try this.. it will change your life!

(I guarantee it)










Why its FAB:



its sweet

its spicy

Its easy


Takes minutes 

Is so good it could be eaten by itself

  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated

  • 5-7 slices of watermelon radish
  • top with black sesame seeds and fresh scallions
  • 2 buns


  1. In a small saucepan over medium high heat add all the ingredients except for the arrowroot and water.
  2. Whisk everything together and bring to a boil. In a small bowl, stir together the arrowroot and water until it dissolves.
  3. Gradually pour the mixture into the boiling sauce, while continuously whisking for 1 minute.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and allow to simmer for 3-5 minutes, until the sauce has become thickened.
  5. Remove from heat and cool before pouring into a jar.

  7. Prep all the sandwich ingredients by asking and slicing. In a medium size pan heat sesame oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the crumbles and a few tbsp of Korean bbq sauce and cook for 5-7minutes until crispy. While still warm, press into patties. (you can form patties first and then cook, but this way gets the faux bits thoroughly coated)
