Tender Boiled Pork with Korean Dressing

Tender Boiled Pork with Korean Dressing

Letting the meat it sit in the boiling water results in a moist boiled pork. This sauce also goes well with chijimi (Korean savory pancakes).

Ingredients: 4 servings

Pork belly (block)
400-500 g
1 clove
●Japanese leek (the green part)
1 stalk
Japanese leek (white section) minced
1/2 stalk
Red-leaf lettuce or Korean lettuce
as needed
★Soy sauce
3 tablespoons
1 1/2 tablespoons
1/2 tablespoon
★Sesame oil
1/2 tablespoon
★Grated garlic
1 clove
1/2 teaspoon

1. Put the pork into a pot and fill with water until just covered. Add the ● sake, garlic, and leek. When it begins to boil, cover with a lid and boil for 20 minutes on medium heat.
2. Once boiled, leave the meat in the water until it cools. Combine the ★ ingredients in a container. Mince the Japanese leek.
3. Remove the meat from the water and cut into 3-5mm thick slices. Arrange on a plate and top with julienned cucumber, leek, and white sesame seeds.
4. Wrap with your choice of vegetables and dip in the ★ sauce.
