1.Preheat oven to 240C. Rub pork with fat, season to taste and place in a roasting pan. Roast until skin starts to crackle (30-35 minutes). Reduce heat to 150C and roast until tender (1¼-1½ hours; if crackling needs more time, place it under a hot grill for a few minutes). Remove from oven and rest in a warm place (20 minutes).
2.For ssämjang, mix ingredients in a bowl, adding a little water if necessary.
3.To serve, thinly slice pork belly and arrange on a platter with the nashi, lettuce, spring onion, kimchi and a bowl of the ssämjang for guests to assemble their own lettuce cups.

Note Fermented hot chilli sauce can be purchased at select health-food shops and organic grocers.
