Ingredients and Preparation

For this recipe, we’ll be using pork belly. However, if you can’t eat pork for any reason, you can easily substitute it with thinly sliced chicken. The rest of the ingredients are simple yet packed with flavor. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 pound pre-cut pork belly (available at most Korean grocery stores)
  • Quarter cup hot pepper paste (gochujang)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper flakes
  • Quarter teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Around 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 3-4 green onions, chopped
  • Perilla leaves (optional)
  • Sesame seeds (for garnish)

Let’s Get Cooking!

  1. In a hot pan over medium-high heat, add the pre-cut pork belly and stir fry it until it starts to brown slightly.
  2. Add the hot pepper paste, soy sauce, sugar, hot pepper flakes, ground black pepper, and sesame oil to the pan. Mix everything together until the pork is well coated in the spicy sauce.
  3. Stir in the ginger and garlic, and continue stir frying until the pork is evenly cooked.
  4. Add the sliced onion and chopped green onions to the pan and cook until they become tender and fragrant.
  5. Once the pork is cooked to your liking and the flavors have melded together, remove it from the heat and garnish with perilla leaves and sesame seeds.
