- A handful (1/4 pound) or more of chopped pork belly, bacon, or other pork (OPTIONAL) shopping list

How to make it
- In a medium saucepan, saute the pork until cooked through
- Add the onions, garlic, and ginger; saute ~5 minutes until onions are transparent
- Add kimchi (including any juices). Stir until kimchi is warm/hot
- Pour in water, bring to a boil. Allow to boil while you...
- Cut the tofu into cubes
- Add tofu to pot
- Taste. It'll be spicy!!!! Add as much hot sauce as you can stand.
- Add vinegar if you think you could stand for it to be a little more piquant
- Splash in some soy sauce for added flavor and salt
- Add salt if needed.
- Serve with steamed white rice to help temper the spiciness and strong flavor
