Why I Love This Recipe

A common Korean meal during the hotter months is something called 'ssam' - grilled slices of pork belly (either plain or with a chilli marinade) placed in a lettuce leaf with a little rice, a dab of Korean chilli paste and a few 'banchan'. Very refreshing and is often enjoyed as a communal meal!


Ingredients You'll Need

1kg pork belly, sliced reasonably thin (usually about 5mm)
5 tbsp caster sugar
5 tbsp korean chilli paste (gochujjang)
1 tbsp garlic
1/2 onion, grated
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sesame oil


Directions

To Serve


Cooked rice


Lettuce (we usually use red or green oak lettuce, but it’s fine with iceberg or red coral)


1. Mix together all ingredients and marinate the pork for a few hours, or overnight if you can.


2. Heat a non-stick frying pan or grill, place the pork on and cook till the meat is well done.


3. Serve with rice and lettuce leaves to make wraps :)


So there you go - quick and easy! It might be a bit of a struggle to find the korean chilli paste, but you should be able to find it at most Chinese or Korean grocery stores :)
