Jeyuk bokkeum 제육볶음 or also known as dwaejigogi bokkeum 돼지고기볶음 is Korean stir-fry spicy pork dish. It’s one of my ultimate favorite Korean dish because it’s pork belly (hello?) and because I’m a spicy gal. Not only that, it’s so easy to make. All you have to do is mix everything in a bowl and cook it for about 10 minutes.
Some of the ingredients. Clockwise from left: chopped onion, minced ginger, chopped garlic, chopped green chilies and spring onions, sliced pork belly.
Add pork belly, onion, garlic, green chili, spring onions, gochujang, gochugaru, soy sauce, ginger, brown sugar, sesame oil and ground black pepper in a mixing bowl.
Mix everything up.
In medium heat, add the mixed ingredients. Cook until pork belly is done and the onions are translucent and mushy. Finally add a big pinch of roasted sesame seeds.
It’s best eaten with rice or wrap with lettuce leaves. YuM!
You can use thick slab of pork belly. I prefer mine thin like this. 🙂
This is a bottle of Jeonju’s rice wine called moju 모주. It’s a mild liquor of makgeolli with herbs (include cinnamon). I bought this from my South Korea’s trip in Jeonju. Why am I showing this to you? Because…
Best combination: jeyuk bokkeum with moju!!! Oh yeah. 🙂
