For this weeks ‘Friday Foods’ we check out how to make samgyeopsal, a delicious grilled pork dish!


– 4lbs of pork belly, sliced
– sesame oil
– 6 tbsp soybean paste
– 4 tbsp hot chili paste
– 1 garlic clove, minced
– 1 spring onion, sliced
– a dozen perilla leaves (or lettuce)

Step 1: In a bowl, mix the soybean paste, hot chili paste, garlic, spring onions and 3 tbsp of sesame oil.

Step 2: Add sesame oil to a pan or grill and cook the pork slices, flipping it over to make sure both sides are cooked.

Step 3: Once the pork slices are cooked, place a slice onto a perilla leaf and drizzle the sauce (from step 1) onto the pork.

Step 4: Roll the leaf, and you’re ready to eat! If you don’t like the perilla leaf, then go ahead and use lettuce.
