Made some Pork Belly Buns.
Last year I got the chance to meet David Chang at Ssam Bar in New York.  Well, maybe meeting implies a little too much familiarity.  By “meet”, I actually mean that I walked into Ssam Bar when the imposing figure of Chang himself stormed in to yell at his electrician who was doing some rewiring for him.  It was quite a sight to see.   Almost inspiring to see just how much he cared about every single detail of his restaurants. 
Inside, i went into fanboy mode.  HOLY CRAP THAT’S DAVID CHANG OMGWTFBBQ !!!
But i’m proud to say that I actually played it real cool and calmly hid behind a trash can to take a secret picture of the back of his head.

This is my attempt to recreate Momofuku’s Pork Belly Buns.  This was  an epic 3 day process involving dry marinating for 11 hours, slow  roasting for 4 more, a night of refrigeration to let it all gel, and  finally finishing it off with a sear on a hot pan.  Out of all my dishes, this is my favorite.
