Korean Pork Bone Soup with Potatoes (Gamjatang) is the perfect comforting dish. Full of rich, complex & authentic flavors – the best for warming up with on a cold day!
Nothing beats a steaming bowl of comforting soup once the weather cools down. Gamjatang or Korean Pork Bone Soup/Stew was one of our favorite soups we used to order out when we were living in a bigger city. We didn’t grow up eating Korean food but it immediately felt like comfort food to us the first time we tried it.
If you’ve never tried Korean Pork Bone Soup Gam ja tang before, you are in for a real treat. It is considered a traditional Korean dish with its distinct hearty and rich flavors.
Be sure to set aside an entire afternoon if you are following the recipe exactly – or split it up and start the prep work the day before – the results are amazing and will definitely satisfy your Gamjatang craving.
I’ll be honest, this soup does require some patience and tolerance and is a medium level of difficulty to cook but trust me when I say your efforts will be well worth the reward waiting for you.
If you have never tried Korean Pork Bone Soup, I urge you to either order it at a local Korean restaurant first to see if you like it (it used to cost around $6.99 where we lived) or set aside a day (4-5 hours) to make this delicious dish.
I now make large batches of the broth and freeze them flat in freezer bags so that we are able to enjoy this great comforting dish anytime we want.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You will need to purchase some of these ingredients at a Korean food mart or specialty Asian supermarket if you have one nearby.
