David Chang's Bo SSam

Joined Apr 25, 2011
I have been following Chef David Chang ever since i saw "Mind of a Chef" a few years ago on Netflix.  When he released his SSam sauce earlier this year, I couldn't wait to try it and ordered it online as soon as it became available.  (about two weeks ago)  I have been hearing about his legendary Bo SSam and had to make it.  It was worth every effort and not only lived up to, but even exceeded my expectations.  Slow roasted, then high heat carmalized pork shoulder in a bibb lettuce wrap with rice, kimchi, ginger scallion sauce, and Ssam sauce (http://products.momofuku.com/ssamsauce/)  Delicious!

Oh, and if you want more info or the recipe:

Very nice. I've made it a couple of times, quite tasty. Actually I recall I posted a short video, like 7, 8 seconds, of the sizzling crust as I pulled it out of the oven.

Might be time to revisit that dish soon.

Oh my goodness. That sounds absolutely fabulous. It's not even breakfast time here yet but my mouth is watering just thinking about eating that.
