Korean Spicy Stir-Fried Pork Belly Recipe

  1. In a large bowl, add the onion, gochujang, gochugaru, honey powder, mirin, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and 1 tablespoon water; stir to combine. Add the pork, stirring to coat, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Let the pork sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking. In a large cast-iron skillet over high heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil until lightly smoking. Add the marinated pork, as many slices as will fit in one layer, and up to 2 tablespoons extra marinade if you have any. Cook, turning frequently with tongs, until caramelized, about 5 minutes. Pour out any excess fat, rinse or wipe the pan clean, and repeat with any remaining pork.
  3. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish the meat with the sesame seeds and scallion. Serve with steamed rice and lettuce or perilla leaves for wrapping if desired.
