Foodie Goodie | Samgyeopsal (Korean Grilled Pork Belly).

I'm glad that the SM Supermall here in my area is included in this year's Korean Festival. It's a week-long celebration that runs from October 1 until October 7, where they showcase all things Korean - from music, to food, to makeup, and even movies.
Li'l Min Ho. :)
Speaking of Korean food, let me share with one of my favorite Korean food. It's called 'Samgyeopsal' 삼겹살 - a dish you'd see very often in Korean dramas. Samgyeopsal is nothing more than uncured pork belly, sliced thin like bacon but with the rind removed. The name, which literally translates to “three layered meat”, is a description of the strata of meat and fat that invariably makes up this cut.
Samgyeopsal.
The strips of meat are grilled with slices of onion and garlic, sometimes with pieces of mushroom or even strips of kimchi.
Grill 'em up!
To eat samgyeopsal, take a piece of well-cooked pork belly meat and place it on a lettuce leaf. Add some dressing and vegetables, a spoonful of rice even, and wrap it up.  Try not to put too much in the lettuce so you can eat the 'ssam' (Korean word for wrap) in one bite.
It's a wrap!
Such a simple dish right? It's simple and easy to prepare, and creating your own ssam is really fun! :)

I have never tried Pork Belly and I am not sure I would know how to cook it correctly-even with your instructions! It does sound interesting.

I've always liked wrapping meat in lettuce, my family thinks I'm weird, but now I'm going to show them your post and tell them that I'm totally normal and that I'm buy more bacon!
