Gamjatang (Korean pork and potato stew) is a beloved Korean dish. It features slow-simmered pork back and ribs (cooked bone-in), in a soup base of daeng-jang, perilla leaves and ground seeds, potatoes, and bean sprouts. The earthy saltiness of the daeng-jang and the distinct aroma of the perilla set off the pork perfectly. The potatoes soak up the meaty bone broth flavors and are a perfect chaser to the meat. After you finish the melt-in-your-mouth pork and potatoes, feel free to stir in your rice into the remaining broth and eat with kimchi - for Koreans, it's a taste of heaven. The pork is cooked bone-in, resulting in a rich broth and tender meat (Koreans believe the meat around the bone is the tastiest) so feel free to pick it up with your hands!
We cook a big batch of this soup each day and go until we sell out so come early!
