Today I want to share a delicious Korean Style Pan-fried Pork Belly recipe with you guys. Not only does it taste amazing but also is super easy to make.
One of the most important seasonings we will be needing to make this dish is the Korean hot pepper paste. You could easily find the Korean hot pepper paste at an Asian grocery store or on Amazon (In the recipe below, I included a link to the hot pepper paste). You don’t have to get the exact same brand I am using because there are a lot of different brands that are making the hot pepper paste, and they all taste the same.
After I cut the pork belly into thin slices, I put them in a small bowl and tossed in 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic, minced ginger and 1 tablespoon of Korean hot pepper paste, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil and toasted white sesame seeds to marinate the pork belly.
After about 20 minutes of marinating, the pork belly slices are ready to be cooked.
I placed the pork belly slices evenly onto a non-stick pan and pan-fried them for about 4-5 minutes each side until they have changed color and been cooked through.
Top with a handful of my favorite garnish- the fresh cilantro, now this easy and tasty Korean-style pan-fried pork belly is ready to be served!
Below is a step-by- step demonstration of how I made this dish with pictures.
