  • 1 1/2 lb Slice of Pork Belly the Costco one is about 10" in length
  • 2 tbsp Korean Miso
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 inch Ginger
  • 8-10 Leaves Medium Size Chinese Cabbage 1 leaf per pork piece
  • 2 oz Kimchi
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Oil


  • Gather all the ingredients.
  • Use a grater to grate ginger and set aside.
  • Grind or use a garlic press to grind down the garlic and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add grated garlic, grated ginger, Korean Miso, salt and black pepper. Mix well to form a paste.
  • Rub the paste onto pork belly and once done, put pork belly into a ziplock bag and squeeze as much air out as you can. Seal and place into the refrigerator for 10-12 hours.
  • Once marination is completed, add enough water to cook Chinese cabbage leaves in a large stove top pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add Chinese cabbage leaves and cook for 5-6 minutes or until tender. Once done, run under cold water to stop the cooking process and plate.
  • Meanwhile, plate kimchi.
  • Wash rub off of pork belly. Cut pork belly into 1/2" bite-size pieces.
  • In a cast iron pan, add Sesame Oil on high heat (please note that cast iron pan & handle gets VERY hot. So please wear mitts if you need to handle the pan). When the oil is ready, it will start lightly smoking.
  • Add pork belly onto cast iron pan and cook for each side for 1.5 - 2.5 minutes. Plate once cooked.
  • To assemble, layout 1 Chinese cabbage leaf, then place a pork belly on top. Add 1-2 pieces of kimchi and carefully roll Chinese cabbage leaf to form a wrap.
