David Chang's Bo SSam recipe: anyone make it yet?

Going to make this for Super Bowl, along with a variety of Moroccan salads. I try never to make something for the first time for a party, so I'm wondering if anyone has made it and found it works as advertised? Ideas for sides? Thanks.

    It's delicious. Make two. I served mine with the traditional accompaniments of oysters, seaweed salad and kimchi, which, as expected, my guests really didn't embrace. Of course the rice and lettuce cups were a-ok.

    ETA that it's really not the most mind blowing pork shoulder I've ever made or eaten. It's pretty hard to go wrong with melty, crispy pork in any genre.

      Next time invite me! I like the oysters, kimchi and seaweed salad better!

      Just kidding... I'll eat the whole menu.

    2. I made it for the super bowl once as well. Follow the directions to a tee. I tasted a piece while cooking and was worried it would be too salty but it turned out great. Make those sauces too, the ginger scallion one is especially good.

      1. A friend of mine has made it a couple of times and raves about it. It's on my work-in-process menu for when our kids (and their babies) are here in a couple of weeks.

            thanks so much for the link! excited to try it.

          2. Has anyone tried mixing the goguchang based sauce back into the meat before serving?

              I think part of the allure is the textural differences of the meat when left in a big chunk vs. it being pre-pulled or shredded as you are implying. So I wouldn't do this, but I do think the sauce is delicious. I used up the leftovers on whatever I could find to grill.
