Asian-Inspired Pork and Kimchi Stew
This Asian-Inspired Pork and Kimchi Stew great and light! The Tonkotsu pork broth base encompasses all the tasty notes of ginger, and pork. All you have to do is add a little bit of pork meat, kimchi, and shiitake to the Tonkotsu broth and you have yourself a very Asian-inspired dish.
I have already created the Tonkotsu Pork broth, just click here for the recipe! The broth isn’t too difficult to make at all (it mostly takes time). I also am going to use it for upcoming recipes in my blog, so you can always freeze the excess and save it for later.
This recipe is also very versatile: you could add a variety of vegetables like daikon, eggplant, or even some shirataki noodles/rice to if you’d like a more ramen feel to it.
If you decide to add anything else to this recipes, let me know, I would love to hear how it turns out!
- 1 cup of Tonkotsu pork broth
- 4 oz of fatty pork, like shoulder or belly
- 1/4 C of Kimchi
- 2 tbsp kimchi juices
- 2 dried shiitake mushrooms
- 2 inch slice of ginger sliced
Cut pork into one inch chunks and sear either in a pan or a cast iron skillet if you’d like a little bite to your meat.
Add broth, shiitake, ginger, and kimchi juices and simmer until pork is tender, for approximately 20 minutes.
Remove shiitakes and chop into bite size pieces.
Add kimchi and simmer for an additional 5 mins.
Serve (and for extra kudos serve in a Korean stone bowl and enjoy!)
