¡Muy Caliente!

Maybe a little too caliente -- I made the spicy pork with rice cakes
recipe from the Momofuku cookbook again. A few flubs on my part:
  •  I accidentally bought beef instead of pork. For future reference 牛 means beef and 豚 means pork. Geez, I really need to ramp up my Japanese studying...
  •  I suggest not following thr book's measurements exactly -- I like spicy but not so spicy that you can't even taste anything. I suggest maybe 1 to 1.5 TB of spicy bean paste (book calls for 2) and half the amount of dried peppers. The book calls for 2 cups which is kind of incredible now having eaten it twice with half that amount.
