My Recipes: Pork & Kimchi Stew

This is one of my favorite Korean food and since were quarantined, I decided to make one at home! Kimchi-jjigae is a stew-like Korean dish made with kimchi, pork, and other vegetables.

Total Prep Time: 30-45 mins.


  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 3-4 slices of pork belly, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 small pack tofu, sliced
  • 1 tbsp gochujang or red chilli paste
  • 3 pcs garlic, chopped
  • 1 thumb ginger, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup kimchi, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup of chopped spring onions


  • Heat oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook until it starts to brown, about 3-5 minutes.

  • Add onion, garlic, and ginger and cook until onion begins to soften, about 2-3 minutes.

  • Add broth, cover, and boil until pork is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Add kimchi, jalapeƱo, sesame oil, and gochujang; cover and return to a boil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Add tofu and half the green onions and cook until heated through. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with remaining green onions.


Serve with white rice or noodles and ENJOY!
