Although very similar to the classic Chinese dish, this Korean version has a much subtler taste and a more delicate texture. Cubes of tender golden pork with a hint of ginger combine with crunchy sweet peppers in a delightfully sticky sauce. A dash of pineapple adds sweetness with a distinctly sour edge, which is intensified by the rice wine and cider vinegar. This makes a perfect lunch served with a selection of namul dishes and a bowl of rice.
