From the Test Kitchen

INGREDIENT IN FOCUS
Pork belly is an incredibly rich, delicious cut of meat (used to make bacon), whose high fat content allows the meat to turn perfectly tender and flavorful as it cooks and the fat renders. Here, we're coating it with a soy and gochujang glaze, then serving it over fried rice laden with bites of vibrant kimchi and tender bok choy.

tips & techniques
Roast the pork belly
1 Roast the pork belly

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with foil. Pat the pork belly dry with paper towels. Place on a cutting board with the fat cap facing up; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Place the sliced pork belly on the sheet pan; arrange in an even layer. Roast 20 to 22 minutes, or until crisp around the edges and heated through.* Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Meanwhile, in a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 1/4 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 15 to 17 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork.

Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; thinly slice crosswise. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Roughly chop the kimchi. In a large bowl, combine the vinegar, soy glaze, and as much of the gochujang as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be.
