Our Korean braised hot dogs (jorim) recipe
This recipe is so easy to make. It’s also made in one pot, which means a super easy cleanup! If you’ve been looking for a new way to use up hot dogs from your last cookout or gathering, then you just have to try this recipe.
We make a homemade braising sauce that is filled with salty, umami, and spicy flavors. This combination of ingredients in the braising sauce makes this dish really addicting. This dish is a labor of love, we cook it for about an hour. This helps all of the flavors to really soak into every ingredient and give it depth of flavor instead of just coating the outside.

How to serve these braised hot dogs
The side dish can be served warm or cold, but we prefer it when it is still warm. Or after refrigerating the leftovers, heat it up in the microwave until it’s warmed back up.
We recommend serving these braised hot dogs with freshly steamed rice. Or you could even serve this alongside any type of mild or neutral-tasting noodle dish. This side dish packs a punch of umami, savory and spicy flavors, so we love eating these with anything that has more of a neutral/mild flavor profile.
How to store this Korean braised hot dog side dish
It can be kept refrigerated for a few days in an airtight container. We have not tested freezing this. We would recommend making just enough to enjoy for several days.

- Cut hot dogs in half lengthwise. Then slice hot dogs on the diagonal so they’re about ¼ inch thickness. You basically want the hot dogs to be julienned.
- Place hot dogs and water in a pot. Bring it to a boil. Let it boil for 5 minutes.
- Next, add in all of the remaining ingredients. Turn the heat down to low heat. Let it continue to cook for about 1 hour. About every 10 minutes, stir everything and bring the bottom ingredients in the pot to the top. This way everything cooks evenly with all of the seasonings.
- It’s done when only about ¼ cup of liquid is left. You want most of the liquid to have evaporated, then it’s ready to eat. Enjoy!
