The delicious ‘Buta Don’ (Pork Rice Bowl) is very popular. Today I added Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso) to its sauce for extra ‘umami’ and spiciness. If you love spicy food, you may wish to add more Gochujang, but 2 teaspoons was a right amount for me. Add some vegetables of your choice as well. Today I added ‘Lettuce & Wakame Sesame Salad’.


1 Serving


120 to 150g thinly sliced Pork Belly *cut into the size that is easy to eat
1/2 teaspoon Sesame Oil
1 pinch Salt
1 serving warm Cooked Rice
Spring Onion *finely chopped
Toasted Sesame Seeds
Additional Vegetables *e.g. sautéed Spinach, Tomato, cooked Broccoli, etc. Today I added ‘Lettuce & Wakame Sesame Salad’

1 small clove Garlic *grated
1 small piece Ginger *grated
2 teaspoons Gochujang (Korean Spicy Miso)
2 teaspoons Soy Sauce
2 teaspoons Mirin
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Sugar *alter the amount

  1. Combine all the Sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Heat Sesame Oil in a frying pan over medium to high heat, cook Pork slices, adding a pinch of Salt, until nicely brown. It doesn’t take long at all.
  3. Add the Sauce and stir until the sauce thickens.
  4. Half fill a bowl with warm Cooked Rice and cover it with the Pork and additional Vegetables. Sprinkle some chopped Spring Onion and Toasted Sesame Seeds, and enjoy.
