Hot Honey Glazed Bo Ssäm Content
This is a holiday spin on our classic Bo Ssäm recipe. For the cure, we add in Savory Seasoned Salt to give a rounder flavor. Then, on top, we sub in a sweet and spicy glaze made using Momofuku Hot Honey.
It’s best served for a crowd with lettuce wraps, or rolls, bing bread, more Chili Crunch and your favorite sauces. There’s really no wrong way to eat it. There will probably be leftovers—and this pork shoulder makes for excellent sandwiches the next day.
Put the pork shoulder in a roasting pan. Mix together the granulated sugar, Kosher salt, and Momofuku Savory Seasoned Salt, then rub the mixture into the meat. Cover the pan with plastic wrap and put it into the fridge for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
Heat the oven to 300ºF. Remove the pork from the refrigerator and discard any juices that have accumulated. (You do not need to brush all the seasoning off the pork, unless it is excessively heaped on.) Put the pork in the oven and roast for about 6 hours, basting with the rendered fat and pan juices every hour. Place the entire bulb of garlic whole into the roasting pan beside the bo ssäm and allow it to roast 1–2 hours until very soft. Remove and let cool completely.
When cool, squeeze 5–6 cloves of the roasted garlic pieces from the bulb—it should be a paste. Stir in honey and ½ cup bo ssäm pan drippings.
After about 5–6 hours, the meat should start to be tender and yielding. It’s time to begin glazing. Add a few tablespoons of the glaze to the top of the pork every 20 minutes and continue roasting another hour. Depending on your schedule, you can serve the pork right away or let it rest and mellow out at room temperature for up to an hour.
When ready to serve, turn the oven to 500ºF, top with the rest of the glaze and roast until the glaze is glossy and bubbling but not burned. Serve immediately with lettuce wraps, bing bread, these spiced quick pickles, and anything you need to make lettuce wraps or sandwiches.
