Pickled Mustard Seeds/Mustard Seed Sauce

The mustard seed sauce is an accompaniment for the Pork Belly Ssäm which, not uncommon for a Momofuku recipe, requires two additional recipes, pickled mustard seeds and quick-pickled cucumbers.

I’ll jump right into the pickled mustard seeds.  We pickled the mustards seeds a day early  during the prep for the ssäm night.  This was another item that was largely done by Jessica and I took photos.  It’s a pretty simple process, throw all the ingredients into a pot and cook until done.

Mise en place:

Everything into the pot and on to the stove it goes:

Forty five minutes later, the mustard seeds are nice and plump, ready for a night in the fridge.

Mustard Seed Sauce (pg. 173)

This was put together just prior to dinner.  Start with the pickled mustard seeds in a bowl and combine the other ingredients.

There are a couple of interesting ingredients in the sauce.  It includes diced quick-pickled cucumbers, the kirby’s require a pass through the mandoline and a fifteen minute quick-pickle (more salt and sugar from Mr. Chang).  I’ve posted that recipe earlier for the Momofuku pork buns.

The other interesting ingredient is Kewpie, a Japanese mayonnaise.  It’s the one in the tube with the red top, no photos of the brand because I left it in the hosts apartment.  It has a slightly different flavor to regular mayonnaise, perhaps due to the use of a different vinegar than regular mayonnaise.

We used a powdered Asian mustard but you could use the leftover packets from Chinese takeout if they are handy.

Also, notice the quick dice skills by the cook.  An experienced cook with a sharp knife is too fast for the camera…  Jessica also has a better knife, an easily recognizable brand.

Guess the brand of the knife… A quick mix and the sauce is ready.

One note for anyone who may cook with me in the future, or help out with anyone on a cooking blog in general.  The challenge working together in the kitchen for a blog post is remembering to slow down and take pictures.  Posing for the measuring cups, knife skills, and mise en place interrupts the flow in the kitchen.  Jessica was a good sport and very patient.
