KBBQ Pork Belly Tacos Recipe

My husband and I have a deep love for good food. We both have very open taste palettes. So we're always up for trying or making new food. We religiously talk about how we want to open a restaurant together or to even start a food truck business in the future. The thought of being able to share the food we create, makes it something we seriously want to consider doing some day.

If there's something we love to eat, its TACOS! It's such a quick & easy meal to put together, and there's really no going wrong with it. You have so many options when it comes to switching up the fillings or the shells. You can either go simple & healthy, or go out of your comfort zone by spicing it up with your not-so-typical ingredients found in a taco. The fun thing about them is that it doesn't always have to be Mexican flavors. So it gives you a lot of room to get creative with your dinner!

That's why we've composed a few Korean side dishes also known as "ban-chan" into a taco! We weren't exactly sure how this was going to turn out, but we ended up very satisfied with the outcome! It has the perfect portions of sweet & salty with an acidic kick to it. I really love the crunchy textures and pop of flavor you get in each bite. If you're up for trying something new, you should definitely give this a shot! Hope you enjoy!

*A few of these items were found in our local international market*

1. 2 lbs. Pork Belly 

2. KBBQ Chicken & Pork Marinade 

3. Pickled Radish 

4. Pickled Daikon & Carrots 

5. Cabbage Kimchi

6. Red Onion 

7. Cilantro 

8. Lime 

9. Sesame Seeds 

10. Corn Tortillas 

11. Yum Yum Sauce (Found in the oriental isle) 


1. Marinate pork belly in KBBQ marinade for about 2 hours. (We suggest waiting 2 hours but if you're trying to have a quick dinner, then marinating for about an hour will still give your pork belly flavor) 

2. After Marinating, bake the pork belly in oven with the marinade at 425 degrees fahrenheit for about 2 hours. (Just before the meat falls apart)

3. Prepare the side ingredients by mixing the Daikon, carrots and red onion together. 

4. Warm the tortillas on a skillet until you get your desired texture. 

5. Combine pork belly, kimchi, and pickled radish onto the tortilla

6. Then garnish with cilantro, sesame seeds, lime juice, and Yum Yum sauce.
