Easy and delicious¡

Samgyeopsal is one of those recipes that looks and taste complex, but it actually isn’t difficult to make. It’s a traditional Korean dish and the flavor mostly comes from the pork, which caramelizes as it cooks, giving it a depth of flavor. Even though the star ingredient is fried pork, Samgyeopsal also taste surprisingly fresh with all the crispness of the vegetables you wrap with it, like a lettuce wrap essentially.

Just make sure you get the correct pork though because that makes the biggest difference.
