One of our favourite meals; Korean Style Spicy Pork. It’s very quick to make, as long as you have the pork belly already cooked (boiled) before you start. It’s very important to get the right spicy powder. The Korean spicy powder is just roughly ground dried chilli peppers. It’s not that hot because the peppers are medium heat. If you can’t get this powder I think you would use 2 tablespoons of paprika and 1 teaspoon of cayenne, it’s that kind of taste to heat balance.
