Boiled Pork Belly With Ginger Shallots Oil Dip

I could never resist something delicious like pork belly, one of my favourite part of a pig.  Very often I made Bossam -Korean boiled pork belly  or braised pork belly .  Since I have a slab of pork belly in the freezer. I took the opportunity to cook this simple and yet delicious boiled pork belly.  How can a piece of boiled pork belly be delicious. The secret is the dip which is the accompaniment for the simple boiled pork belly.  You can either make this aromatic and addictive ginger and shallots dip or eat the boiled meat with kimchi wrapped in lettuce. Hubby loves it and as I have said, I could never resist this . I rather die happy then to abstain from eating this artery clogging pork belly with the most delicious dip.

chopped ginger, shallots, chilli and coriander
 Place the chopped ingredients and salt in a small bowl
and pour adequate hot rice bran oil, it should gives a sizzling sound

 slice the boiled meat into 1/4 inch thick
make sure the meat has cooled down before slicing
