Dweji Boolgogi - Spicy Marinaded Pork - (돼지 불고기)

I decided to make some dweji boolgogi today. This is a really simple marinade for about 1 lb. of pork.

Just mix together the following ingredients:

  • 1 Tb sugar
  • 2 TB red pepper powder
  • 1 Tb honey powder
  • 2 TB minced garlic
  • 1 TB gook ganjang
  • 3 TB rice wine
  • 1 TB corn starch
  • 4 TB red pepper paste
  • 3/4 TB soy bean paste
  • dash of pepper and ginger powder

I bought sliced pork butt. Yes, I know I have 2 lbs. I just doubled the recipe.

Marinade the meat in small portions and make sure to thoroughly coat each piece. I also threw in about a cup of green onions.

Once it's marinated, you can transfer it into storage containers.

I left a little for dinner tonight (with some onions). All you need to do is pan fry it until it's cooked.

Then I took the rest and put them into ziplock bags to freeze for later use.

I left one of the dweji boolgogi packets I froze over the weekend in the fridge last night to defrost.

Turn up the heat and drizzle some oil on a pan and let it get HOT.

Meanwhile, cut up some veggies. I used 1/2 onion, 5 cloves of garlic, 1 red pepper, and 5 mushrooms.

Add the pork along with the pepper, garlic and onions and start cooking!

Once it’s about halfway cooked…

Throw in the mushrooms and some green onions.

Keep stirring away until all the meat is fully cooked.

And then plate it…

…you’re ready to serve! EAT. Eat. EAT!

We enjoyed it with some dwenjang jjigae tonight! (Yup, ran to the market and bought the dooboo AKA tofu!)

If you have some ssam jang in the fridge, bring it out! This is a quick, easy, and absolutely delicious dinner. Yay! Lakers won. =)

  2. ^^you can check out my ingredients page to see a picture of honey powder. I purchase it at the Korean market, but I'm sure other places carry it also.

  3. Thank you so very much for having a blog about Korean food :) Ever since I started watching Korean dramas hahaha... I've always wanted to try to make my own Korean food (going out for them can add up so quickly...). I am glad to find your website with directions and an ingredients list!!! (wooo hooo... I finally know what gochujjang looks like in the package!)

    Again, thank you :) (By the way, I love your tips for minced garlic, I might start on that soon too hehe).

  6. Can honey be a substitute for honey powder? And can potato starch be used instead of corn starch?

  8. @yourbuttsmells/ bulgogi itself doesn't necessarily mean beef, but beef IS most commonly used, which is why it is called 'dweji(that means "pork") bulgogi)^^


    and to Korean Cuisine, or whoever posted this post, it has to be '돼지', not '되지'- although they sound the same, 되지 bulgogi would be more like ' it's possible bulgogi'...^^

  9. Thanks for all your recipes! I've made quite a few dishes and soups from your site, and my boyfriend and I loved all of them. I'm looking forward to making this one this weekend. But do you think I could substitute beef as pork? I have a lot of leftover beef...
