Pay Attention, Must DO!

October 20, 2014

Sorry for the lack of posts. I have been a bit busy and was travelling for business last week. (more to follow on that) Hit me up in the comments if you have questions on below please.

Some of my friends (hi Rob) and my wife (hi honey) know that I’ve been obsessing over this a bit…actually a lot.

With apologies to both of you (and thank you for entertaining my madness), but I simply can’t believe how good this is and can’t stop thinking about it.

Every now and then you cook something and you simply say “holy shit, did I just make that??” Reluctantly, because its strange, I’m willing to proclaim that this is THE FINEST PIECE OF MEAT I HAVE EVER PREPARED IN MY LIFE. There, I said it! Do I have your attention now?

Let’s do this. So what is it you say? Here’s the recipe and background:

BO Ssam

Now here some tips from yours truly. Stick with kosher salt, DO NOT use regular salt. The basting is fun, but I don’t think necessary. You don’t need as much brown sugar at the end as suggested, just make sure you cover evenly where possible.

I actually concocted my own fermented bean chili paste.

I will just post some pics…get ready to drool!

Look at that nice bark…


It just can not get any simpler than this.

If you want…forget about most of the recipe.

Buy yourself a good quality pork shoulder. (Whole Foods has significantly better quality than the supermarket and it’s still very affordable at around $3.29 a pound.

For 2 pounds rub 1 table spoon salt and 1 table spoon sugar all over it, cover and in the fridge for 6 hours up to 24. Preheat your oven to 300 when you’re ready. Pour of the juices and put in a oven safe cooking dish in the oven. it will be ready when it falls apart. Baste with juices after an hour if you like…don’t think that is even necessary. When done remove from oven and turn oven to 500. Take 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and spread evenly over the top. Back in the oven and remove when it has the color YOU like.

BE HAPPY….and promise me you will try this 🙂
