Recipe: Stir fried Pork with Kimchi (Jaeyook Bokkeum)

Since we had a new batch of homemade kimchi, I decided to try cooking a new dish for the family to try. Stir fried kimchi pork is also known as jaeyook bokkeum (the Korean version) or buta kimchi (the Japanese version).. however I did not follow any recipes in particular, and made it to my taste.

As you can see, my version is super easy. I used pork loin as the meat is tender and does not require much cooking. It is first marinated with sesame oil and ginger wine, then stir fried along with kimchi as well as some kimchi juice. If you prefer your pork spicier, feel free to add gochugaru (Korean red pepper flakes), however I omitted this as I'm feeding it to the kids too.

To my surprise, both the kids loved this! Especially Daniel, who asked me to make this again for him. No problems son, mummy loves it too!

  1. My missus makes her own kim chi and yes, she cooks this dish too. I quite like it even though I am no fan of kim chi, not like her and our girl - they are so into anything and everything Korean.

  2. That looks delicious! I love Korean food :)
