How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium-size nonreactive pot, cook the pork belly pieces over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the fat is 
sizzling and the pork is light golden, about 8 minutes. Add the kimchi and the onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, 
until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes. 

Step 2    

Add the reserved kimchi 
liquid, mushrooms, gochujang, gochugaru, and 4 cups of water, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook over moderately low heat for 10 minutes. 

Step 3    

Season the stew with salt. Stir in the tofu, breaking it up slightly with the spoon, and bring to a boil; remove from the heat. Serve the stew hot with steamed rice.
