After being introduced to 8-flavour pork belly in Melbourne on his
recent work trip (err back in August ><!), my Dad has taken a liking obsession to that. It’s so odd because he rarely eats samgyupseol when we go for KBBQ! Anyway, we (the kids) were going to take him out for dinner on Father’s Day this year, but Dad chose to have a bbq instead…in the rain =.=’
Why a bbq? especially risking the wind and rain? Well, he wanted pork belly…so pork belly it was!
The bbq items were as follows:
Different flavoured pork belly – red fermented beancurd, bulgogi, gochujang, plain
Ssamjang, lettuce & spring onion salad for pork belly
Jumbo tiger prawns
Soy sauce & honey glazed squid
Herbed butter mushrooms
But obviously, we need to wait for the bbq items to cook so we need some food in the meantime!
Roasted mushroom & capsicum salad
Prawn &; salmon salad
Smoked salmon & potato salad
There was A LOT of food! All yummy so everyone enjoyed the feast =) I really admire people who throw dinner parties often. After preparing the food for this, I was pretty tired! But then again, I had to do it all before I went to church in the morning so had to wake up extra early =P
I also made some lemon iced tea for drinks, and a fruit salad for dessert =) Mum also made a Chinese herbal drink to fight the heatiness from the bbq so we don’t all get nosebleeds haha.
