Pork Kimchi Stew. A comforting, warm and delicious pork stew in a kimchi broth. Pairs wonderfully with steamed rice. Perfect for dinner or lunch. Easy to make in just one pot with minimal ingredients. This Korean pork kimchi stew only takes 30 minutes to make!
This is my favourite of all the different types of kimchi jjigae! Something about that pork pairs so well with that spicy kimchi broth. I could honestly eat this every single day because it really warms my body up.
If you love Korean food but you've never tried pork kimchi stew, then you must! It's just as tasty like tuna kimchi jjigae or tofu kimchi jjigae. But I would say it's slightly more savoury thanks to the pork. If you don't eat pork and you want to give it a try, try my tuna kimchi jjigae or my tofu kimchi jjigae. Both are delicious and easy to make!
