Korean name
Hangul 곱창(腸)
Revised Romanization gopchang
McCune–Reischauer kopch'ang

Gopchang refers to either a dish of grilled intestines of cattle or pork in Korean cuisine[1] or the intestines themselves. In the latter case, gopchang is commonly referred to as such because of its curvy shape[2] rather than as sochang (소창), which literally means "small intestines." It is the counterpart of daechang (대창), meaning "large intestines."

Compared to other cuts of meat, gopchang is high in iron and vitamins. It is relatively inexpensive and has a characteristic flavour and a chewy yet palatable texture. It is used in many Korean dishes such as gui (grilled dishes) or bokkeum (stir-fried dishes).[2][3] It is similar to makchang, except that it is prepared from the small intestines of pork or ox.
