Landon's Pork Belly without Mochi

One of my favorite things to eat from Palama Market is Pork Belly with Mochi. I blogged about it before here. Actually I usually just eat the mochi and Landon or CQ will eat the pork belly.

Landon made his version of the dish tonight minus the mochi (boooo!) and it tasted really good, almost like Palama Market's.

Landon said he cut up about 2 pounds of pork belly into cubes and boiled it for one hour. Then he sauteed the pork, one large sliced carrot and 2 cut-up bell peppers in some vegetable oil. He added 2 tbsp of the ko chu jang sauce on the left, 1 tbsp from the container in the middle and 1 tbsp from the jar on the right - all that he could find in our 'fridge. I think they're all ko chu jang sauces, but he thinks not. He then added about 1 tbsp of shoyu, 3 tbsp of sugar and finally when almost pau 1 to 2 tbsp sesame oil to taste. He also said that if he could've found the sesame seeds he would've added some in too.

Jalna, the Wang brand sauce on the right is made from chili peppers, my Korean girlfriend turned me on to it, instead of the one that comes in the jar with the green screw top, yummm...the other two ko choo jangs are made out of soybeans. I now have them stocked since making your miso soup ;o}
