1) 1.25 pounds of sam gyup sal (pork bacon/butt?)
2) 2 tablespoons sesame oil
3) 1 tablespoon minced garlic
4) 1 green jalepeno
5) 1 red jalapeno
6) green onions (you be the judge)
7) onions (a little)
8) 1 tablespoon red pepper paste
First get about a pound of pork butt. I just HALF the sam gyup sal that they sell at the Korean Market. That's usually enough for two people and leftovers. Then I poured sesame oil all over it, I'm guessing 2 tablespoons. Let it cook a little and add the minced garlic. About 1 tablespoon or more depending on how you prefer it. I use 2 tablespoons....I love garlic.
Then when all the pink part of the meat is cooked away, add a tablespoon of red pepper paste and mix really well and continue to let it cook.
It should start to look like this. Then add the KIMCHI. About half of the amount of pork. As it's cooking A LOT of juices will start to rise up from the pork and the kimchi...don't worry about it. Let this cook on LOW heat for up to an hour! While I let it cook, I cut up all the other veggies. Let it cook for about 45 minutes.
After 45 minutes or so, start adding the vegetables. You can pretty much add whatever you want or have in the fridge. Onions, green peppers, garlic cloves, carrots, mushrooms, etc. Tonight I added half a onion, 1 serrano chile, green onions, and mushrooms.
Total cooking time should be just over an hour. The longer you cook it, the more tender the pork becomes.
This is one of the simplest and yummiest dishes to make. Try it at home~~
Here's a shot of the finished product. You can plate it with some fresh tofu!
