Close up of gamjatang in white bowl individual sizeGamjatang is a wonderfully hearty and spicy Korean stew made with pork neck bones and potatoes. It’s a great frugal meal that Koreans enjoyed especially during the cold season. BTW, if you cannot get pork neck bones, you can just use pork ribs and it will still be delicious.

Gamjatang (Korean Pork Bone Stew)

Gamjatang 감자탕 (Korean Pork Neck Bone Stew) is a dish that was not really common in Seoul when I was growing up. The first time I had it was when my nephew DW was fulfilling his military duties in Korea and my husband and I visited him. My nephew loves to eat (must run in the family) and his request was to eat 2 meals within 5 hrs of his time off with us!!

His 1st request was to eat Gamjatang for lunch and then 2nd was to have Jjajangmyeon and Tangsuyuk (Sweet and Sour Pork) for dinner. And after the early dinner, he wanted to take a box of pizza back to his unit so he could share with his buddies.
