Let a pork shoulder, 6 hours in the oven, and 7 Tb of brown sugar make you a hero to your foodie friends.
The word ssam is so unusual in English because of the double S at the beginning.
The dish is known in Korea as bo ssam — pork wrapped like a package in fresh greens, with rice and kimchi. David Chang, the chef and an owner of a small restaurant empire in New York and abroad, offers an exemplary version at his Momofuku Ssam Bar in Manhattan’s East Village for $200, where it serves 6 to 10 people and regularly blows minds.
