You'll need

200 gm piece boneless pork belly, skin scored 6 small brioche rolls, halved horizontally ½ cup (loosely packed) each mint and coriander, shredded 3 spring onions, thinly sliced diagonally 1 Lebanese cucumber, seeds removed, cut into julienne 2 tsp lime juice 1 tsp fish sauce 1 tsp soy sauce 120 gm kimchi (see note)   Pickled cucumber 125 ml (½ cup) rice wine vinegar 55 gm (¼ cup) caster sugar 1 Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced   Korean hot pepper mayonnaise 3 egg yolks 30 ml rice wine vinegar 300 ml olive oil 30 ml sesame oil 1½ tbsp Korean red pepper paste (see note) 1 tbsp lemon juice

Method

  • 01
  • Place pork skin-side up on a wire rack over a deep roasting pan. Pour over 500ml boiling water, dry with absorbent paper (discard water) and refrigerate for skin to dry (6 hours-overnight).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, for pickled cucumber, stir vinegar, sugar and 1 tsp sea salt flakes in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool, transfer to a non-reactive container, add cucumber and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for Korean hot pepper mayonnaise, process yolks and rice wine vinegar in a food processor. With motor running, add oils in a thin steady stream until thick and incorporated. Add pepper paste and lemon juice, process to combine, season to taste and refrigerate until required.
  • 04
  • Preheat oven to 180C. Season pork skin generously with sea salt flakes and roast until pork is cooked through (25-30 minutes). Set aside to rest in a warm place (10 minutes) then thinly slice across the grain.
  • 05
  • Preheat grill to high and toast cut sides of brioche rolls until golden (1-2 minutes). Meanwhile, combine mint, coriander, spring onion, cucumber, fish sauce, soy sauce, lime juice and pork slices in a bowl and toss to combine. Spread brioche bases with Korean hot pepper mayonnaise, top with kimchi, pork mixture, then pickled cucumber, sandwich with brioche tops and serve.
