Today I’m going to share One-Pot Korean Spicy Ribs and Rice recipe!
This dish is perfect for cold weather, when you wanna be comfy and cozy at home!
The spiciness will warm you up and the rice will fill you up!
You can definitely reduce the spiciness by reducing Gochugaru, the Korean red pepper flakes.
Also, if you don’t want spicy at all, just use miso incased of gochujang, the Korean red pepper paste.
You can also make this recipe with bone-in & skin-on chicken thighs.
I don’t recommend to use chicken breast, because it will be very easy to dry out. Especially this stew type of dish.
Also it will have much less flavor than using pork ribs or bone-in & skin-on chicken thighs.
The meat is falling off from the bone, the rice is SO flavorful and soft and the sauce was flavorful, spicy, thick and delicious!
You’ve got to try this comfy cozy recipe at home!!
So try this delicious comfy food at home for your family friends or just for yourself!

- Meanwhile let’s make sauce! Combine all ingredients for sauce in a mixing bowl.

- Add rice, stir and make sure rice covered by liquid so it will evenly cook through. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, simmer for 20 minutes; and then reduce heat to low, simmer for additional 10 minutes. Remove from heat, let it stand and relax for 10 minutes.
- Stir rice and ribs and garnish with chopped green onion & sesame seeds. Enjoy!
