Tender, savory roasted pork belly lettuce wraps make a delicious interactive dinner for a crowd.

Cooking Channel host Judy Joo’s new cookbook, named for her popular show, is a fresh, spicy collection of Korean recipes you can 100 percent make at home. Craving bulgogi? Can’t shake your kimchi craving? Hit the Asian market and get cooking!

Sharing is a common theme underlying all Korean food. Bo ssam embodies this convivial sentiment — everyone sharing from the same plate, yet creating a small bespoke parcel for their own consumption. The lettuce leaves and pickles cut the fat nicely and bring a welcome freshness to the dish. If your pork belly comes with the ribs on, cut them off and slather with some doenjang-honey-ginger-gochujang paste (make extra). Roast until cooked through and caramelized and you’ll have the tastiest ribs ever.
