Hi! Today we are reposting this recipe because it’s so delicious, and also very perfect to make for Independence day! This is such a great alternative to burgers and hot dogs. What are you guys planning to grill up this weekend?
Today we have a Korean Style Spicy Pork Belly recipe. Pork Belly is one of my favorite things to order at Korean BBQ, so it’s nice to be able to make it at home once in a while. This is a great recipe for a group of people because the components for it are so minimal. Lettuce and brown rice essentially. My favorite part of this recipe is constructing my little pork belly burrito. I personally go for double lettuce because I really love the texture and taste with the pork belly, but it is totally ok to just forget the lettuce and eat the rice topped with pork belly. Whatever floats your boat! Enjoy!
