This Samgyupsal Style Pork Belly is quick to prepare. The best thing about it, all you need are few ingredients. Did I say few? Well, you only need four ingredients, that is, pork, gojuchang, sesame oil and salt.
Samgyupsal became an instant hit among us Filipinos. We love meat. We love it grilled. The best part, we love it serve unlimited. Yup! You read it right. Almost all samgyupsal in the Philippines are for unlimited serving and it comes at really affordable price.
Way back several years ago, samgyupsal was introduced in the Philippines probably due to the Korean novela influenced. The pioneers in the samgyupsal food business were at a premium price up until now. However, the game changers are the restaurants serving unlimited meat for a very affordable price of Php500.00.
However, with the readily available Korean ingredients in the groceries and even online, you can now experience samgyupsal at home. There are already ready marinated meat in the groceries for samgyupsal. All you need is a griller. No griller? A simple non – stick or cast iron pan will do the trick.
My dad bought some pork belly strips for our baon. I don’t have anything in my mind on how I will cook with it. Then an idea hit me. Why not make samgyupsal style pork belly for our pack lunch. Basically, it’s just like your regular grilled pork belly, right?
Of course, samgyupsal experience is not complete without a side dish. My mom bought some bok choy but I think she forgot to cook it last Saturday. So what I did was blanched it and marinated it in kimchi seasoning and sesame oil. Then, I stored it in the fridge for our Monday packed lunch.
For this Samgyupsal Style pork Belly, I used a regular strips of pork belly. However, there are now available bacon cut pork belly in the grocery which I bet is the ideal cut of meat. It will cook faster and the flavor would penetrate the meat faster.
