Summer BBQ Bo Ssäm Dinner with East Fork

We dreamed up a summer BBQ plan with our friends at East Fork. Everything goes on their beautiful plates and bowls in our limited edition collab glazes—check them out: Peachy Keen and Orchard. East Fork released these glazes in last December, and we’re doing another one-time drop this summer, just in time for all the cookouts and gatherings you have planned.

Here’s the BBQ dinner party menu—they all use our Momofuku pantry products, and they’re look perfect on our collab collection with East Fork.

Spicy BBQ-Glazed Bo Ssäm – ideal for summer, this bo ssäm subs in our spicy seasoned salt in the cure to give the pork shoulder a punch of heat, then it’s topped with a spicy BBQ glaze
Soy Pickle and Jalapeño Potato Salad – our very favorite potato salad—it’s made using our soy pickles, but you could easily swap in store-bought pickles instead
Crunchy Noodle Coleslaw with Sesame Soy Dressing – an extra-crunchy summer side—with a vinaigrette packed with our soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, and chili crunch
Soy Daikon and Jalapeño Pickles – these easy pickles, made with our Momofuku Soy Ssauce, are a staple in our restaurants
Savory Miso Butter Rolls – store-bought dinner rolls are toasted and seasoned with creamy miso and a pinch of our Savory Seasoned Salt

East Fork pottery is our favorite for hosting a dinner party—they’re durable for whoever’s handling them, colorful for whatever you’re serving, and at the end of it all, easily thrown in the dishwasher for a fast clean up. We admired East Fork’s pottery (and collected it for our own home kitchens) for a long time before we teamed up with them last December. They made as much as they could then. We all knew they’d sell fast—we just didn’t realize how fast. As we looked at our calendars for this year, we were happy to find space in summer where we could team up again.

Summer may be our favorite season for entertaining. We’re excited to be able to bring back this collab (in all of East Fork’s shapes and sizes!) just in time for whatever fun gatherings you have planned in the coming months. If you need some inspiration—try out our BBQ dinner menu.

Be sure to check out our limited edition glazes with East Fork and set a reminder for when they go on sale on June 27. They will be limited edition again, and when they’re gone, they’re gone for good.

David Chang’s Favorite Snack: Tingly Popcorn

This is hands down the best popcorn. You could use any of the seasoned salts for popcorn, but my favorite is tingly. You get that tingly, numbing sensation from the Sichuan peppercorns plus the rounded umami flavors of our salt. It’s not necessary, but’s great if you toss in a little sugar too.

1 cup yellow popcorn kernels
½ cup neutral oil, such as safflower oil 
Momofuku Tingly Seasoned Salt (or another seasoned salt of your choice)
Sugar (optional)

Combine popcorn kernels and ¼ cup neutral oil in a large pop over high heat. Cover and wait for it to start popping. As it pops, gently shake pot to stir around the kernels. It is finished popping when there are about 3 seconds between pops. Uncover and pour in additional ¼ cup oil and top with several pinches of Momofuku Tingly Seasoned Salt (3 to 4 tablespoons or more) plus a dash of sugar, if desired. Toss to combine. Continue seasoning until it reaches the level of saltiness you desire.

Momofuku’s Guide to our Favorite Snacks

We love snacks. We eat them between service, during service, at our home base back when we were in the office, even at home. One of our favorite things about our pantry products is that they help us pack lots of flavor into some of our favorite snack foods. 

We compiled some of our easiest snack hacks that use our seasoned salts, chili crunch, and soy sauce and tamari. They’re all ready in minutes, and they are great for a party—or for a party of one. If you make them, tag us on Instagram, and if you have other snack hacks, let us know. 

Savory & Salty Umami Almonds | Made with our Momofuku Tamari and Savory Seasoned Salt, these almonds are one of our go-tos to have around the house or our restaurants. 

Whipped Lemon Ricotta Dip with Chili Crunch Drizzle | We used to serve this dish at Momofuku Nishi in New York City, and it’s become a favorite way for us to use chili crunch. 

David Chang’s Favorite Snack: Tingly Popcorn | We spent an afternoon in Dave’s kitchen, and this was the snack he made for us—freshly popped popcorn with lots of our Tingly Seasoned Salt.

Tingly Candied Cashews | If you have any of these left after snacking, then save them for salads, roasted sweet potatoes, and more. They’re sweet and tingly and all-around winners. 

Spicy Dried Mango | We used to have these at our homebase, and they’re one of the easiest hacks for transforming dried mango (or pineapple or apricots) into a perfect snack. 

Paul Carmichael’s Grilled Cheese with Chili Crunch | Paul used to make this for family meal at Má Pêche. We upped the flavor with the addition of chili crunch. 

Our snacks use all of our products—so be sure to snag a Pantry Starter Pack to be able to make them all at home.
