Korean Pork

What can be better than cooking marinaded meat over hot coals or under the roaring fire of the Roccbox or stir fry in a wok.Quick and easy cook and so tasty.  DRINK SUGGESTION:  If you want a beer, look no further than Asahi, although Japanese, it really hits the notes of the sweet and spicy flavour of the dish, wine wise a beautiful Alsace white which is  off dry rather than sweet but a lot of lime and tropical fruit flavours which are strong enough to stand up to the pork belly.
