Kimchi and pork belly lunch 
2nd-Sep-2010 08:41 pm
How long has it been since I shared a photo of my lunch?

Possibly not long enough, especially after I bought the BIGGEST jar of kimchi from a grocery shop in the city for $12 several weeks ago. In fact, I know the exact date I bought it, cuz a friend shared a kimchi noodle recipe that I simply had to try and immediately went out to get said kimchi. It is taking me FOREVER to get through the container, but it is awesome to feel my mouth burn like a house on fire (haha) with every mouthful.

Did I also mention that we bought 2 massive pieces of pork belly from Super Butcher for AUD$5 per kg? The SO roasted half of one on the BBQ, setting it on spectacular fire - so spectacular, he burned his forearm trying to get it off the roasting rack from the radiated heat- and I braised the other half.

Ouch, is the SO okay? Not a bad burn I hope. :o
Also, I don't think I'm familiar with kimchi. Got a comparison to the spicyness of it?

He's fine. He's the reason why I grow as much aloe vera as possible. One stalk slathered all over the burn and he was fine the next day. Not a mark on him.

Kimchi has different levels of spice. The ones we get served at most Korean restaurants here is really mild, but this tub I bought is pretty sharp and hot. It's pickled, so it's kinda like a milder bird's eye chilli heat.
