Samgyeopsal (aka Korean bacon)
I've tried and tried to find Samgyeopsal or korean bacon as its called, and can not find anyone who sells it.
I'm looking online at different retailers, but no one seems to carry it, I'm wondering if anyone knows a place that ships it (or places in NYC that sell it).
I really want to get my hands on this stuff, but, dang I am having no luck, anyone out there with any ideas or know any places????
It's just sliced pork belly (about .25" thick), so try looking for that. It's not cured or smoked or anything.
get pork belly and slice it yourself..thats what my mother does and we both agree that it is far superior to already sliced samgyeopsal. You will find it in pretty much any asian grocery store. However I never see pork belly in any mainstream grocery stores....wonder why?
If you like your meat extra fatty you can go for "ogyeopsal" O=5 and basically there are 5 layers of fat as opposed to "sam" where there are 3
Go to the Heritage Foods USA Website and get some Heritage Pork, Pork Belly. I have a large slab. That is the best source
