I love bun cha. Vietnamese grilled pork and rice noodle salad. The moist and flavourful pork. The cool rice noodle and fresh herb salad. And the nuoc cham. That magic balance of spicy, sweet, sour and salty. It’s just perfect for dinner on a warm summer night.
Korean braised pork ribs will make you forget you have a grill. Meltingly tender. Slightly sweet gochujang sauce. Just pork rib goodness. With a Korean twist.
Mexican pork and black bean stew. This is one of those crazy satisfying recipes that insinuates itself into your list of favourites. It’s not flashy. It’s not much to look at.
But it’s not yet another chili recipe either. Just really good in that sneak up on you sort of way.
There are sandwiches and then there are epic sandwiches. This is an epic sandwich. Vietnamese banh mi with gochujang mayo drizzled all over sliced pork belly. Warm pork belly. Are you drooling yet?
If you want to re-invent your meatloaf, Korean meatloaf with gochujang glaze is a great way to do it. Think juicy pork, Korean spice and a ton of umami. There’s nothing not to like here.
Momofuku pork belly is so good a restaurant empire was built on it. Melting tender and deeply flavoured. And this is how they do it. For real. I asked. At the restaurant.
