Jokbal is a dish of sliced pigs’ feet cooked in ganjang (soy sauce), ginger, garlic, rice wine, water, and sugar. The mixture is then brought to a boil. Over time, the meat becomes very tender. The meat is then removed from the bone and cut into slices and enjoyed.
Large portions of jokbal are usually shared among several diners. Like other Korean meats dishes, the meat is often eaten wrapped in lettuce or perilla (sesame) leaves with green chili peppers, sliced garlic, and topped with spicy chili or soybean paste such as ssamjang.
