This roast pork dish is epic. Complete with crackling, steamed bread and an arrangement of pickles and vegetables, it’s a complete banquet worthy of any celebration.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
4kg pork shoulder, bone in and skin on
2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
2 teaspoons salt
Pickled cabbage
4 lemons, cut into cheeks

Ssamjang

Quantity Ingredient
60g red chilli paste
60g white miso paste
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 red onion, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, finely grated
thumb-sized piece fresh ginger, finely grated
2 spring onions, thinly sliced, white part only
2 long red chillies, finely diced

Steamed bread

Quantity Ingredient
450g rooster brand, steamed bread mix
115g caster sugar
250ml milk
1 teaspoon grapeseed oil

Method

  1. To make the ssamjang, mix all the ingredients together and set aside.
  2. To make the steamed bread, in a bowl combine the flour and sugar. Using your hand, mix the flour and sugar while slowly adding the milk and oil to form a dough. Knead the dough on a work surface for 3–4 minutes until it forms a smooth ball.
  3. Divide the dough into 10 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Place on a tray and leave to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  4. When you are ready to serve the bread, steam the dough balls over rapidly boiling water until the bread rises, about 12–15 minutes.
  5. With a sharp knife, score the pork skin, or you can ask your butcher to do this for you.
  6. Place a steamer — large enough to fit the pork — on the stove and bring it to a simmer. Place the pork shoulder in the steamer and cook it for 4 hours.
  7. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  8. Remove the pork from the steamer and place it in a large, heavy roasting tin. Rub the oil over the pork skin and sprinkle with the salt. Roast in the oven for 30–45 minutes or until the skin is crisp.
  9. Serve the pork with the steamed bread, pickled cabbage, ssamjang and lemon cheeks.
