  • 1 lb cauliflower
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup corn starch
  • 1 tsp Fresh Garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 lb panko
  • 1/2 cup Korean chili flakes
  • 1/2 cup Korean red pepper paste
  • 1/2 cup minced Garlic
  • 2 cups of corn syrup
  • 1 cup of ketchup
  • 1 cup of crushed pineapple
  • 1 tbsp of white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of sunflower oil
  • Cut the cauliflower into small bite sized pieces or your preferred size.
  • In a bowl add your eggs and cornstarch and mix until smooth.
  • Add garlic, ginger, onion powder, smoked paprika and salt and mix well.
  • Take one piece of cauliflower and submerge it in batter, then coat in panko. Apply pressure with hands so panko sticks. Repeat this with all cauliflower bites.
  • Set Vortex Plus to 400F for 30 minutes.
  • Line a sheet tray with parchment paper or aluminum foil, use non stick spray.
  • When Vortex Plus BEEPS to 'Add Food' put food tray in and set time for 30 minutes, at 15 minutes it will tell you to turn food. Take it out and flip over.
  • While this is cooking start Spicy Korean BBQ sauce.
  • Using your Instant Pot choose the Sauté feature, and drizzle oil into the bottom.
  • Once the pot is hot then lightly fry the garlic for 1-2 minutes
  • Add all remaining ingredients and gently simmer on low for 20 minutes.
  • If it finishes before the cauliflower bites, press Keep Warm.
  • Once cauliflower bites are done, submerge into Spicy Korean BBQ sauce and enjoy!
