Grilled Pork WITH SKIN (Ggeobdegi Ogyeopsal 껍데기 오겹살)

Yeah, we know Samgyeopsal. Now get ready for Ogyeopsal. The “sam” in Samgyeopsal means “three,” as in “three layered pork.”

So Ogyeopsal loosely means “five layered pork.”

What’s the fifth layer?

Well, if you’re a little vigilant, it’s the prize in the cereal box for pork lovers: the skin. Not all Ogyeopsal has skin, though. Yet if the menu says “Ggeobdegi Ogyeopsal 껍데기 오겹살,” it definitely will have it.
