Recipe Post: Gochujang Grilled Pork Belly

Another week another recipe!

One of my teammates is Korean and LOVES KBBQ (who doesn’t???) However, it’s very much out of budget. She had some pork belly slices so I decided to whip something up. Not to toot my own horn, but it turned out pretty great.

Let’s get cooking!

Notes:

  1. Use thin sliced pork belly (pictured below). This is available at most Asian grocers

2. Feel free to adjust proportions of ingredients to vary taste. Gochujang can be quite strong.
