Jeyuk bokkeum (제육볶음), aka dweji bulgogi (돼지불고기), is a spicy marinated pork. It’s another highly popular Korean BBQ dish. Jeyuk means pork, and bokkeum means stir-fry. It’s my son’s absolute favorite! He loves fatty pork and spicy food, which makes this dish perfect for him.

Unlike its beef counterpart, which is traditionally marinated in a soy sauce based sauce, pork is typically marinated in a spicy chili pepper paste (gochujang, 고추장) based sauce with lots of fresh garlic and ginger. For an authentic Korean dish, there is simply no substitute for gochujang.

The recipe also uses gochugaru (Korean red chili pepper flakes). You can omit it if you like it less spicy or add more to make it spicier.

I also use grated apple to add an acidic sweet flavor to the marinade. The apple works really well with the pork.

Although any cut of pork can be used for this dish, pork shoulder or loin with some fat works best. I sometimes add sliced pork belly to intensify the pork flavor. You can normally find pre-sliced pork at Korean markets. If cutting the meat at home, partially freeze it for about an hour before slicing.

The marinated pork can be either grilled over open fire or pan-fried.

Serve with red or green leaf lettuce in which to wrap the meat, along with ssamjang(쌈장) or simply gochujang. Perilla leaves (kkaennip, 깻잎) and crown daisy (ssukgat, 쑥갓) are great vegetables to add to your wraps, if available.
