- 1/3 cup pine nuts
- 3 quarts water
- 2 tablespoons kosher salt
- 2 pounds pork loin, sliced 1/8 inch thick
- 1 tablespoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger
- 2 heads of Boston lettuce, leaves separated
- 1 cup kimchi (8 ounces)
In a small dry skillet, toast the pine nuts over low heat, stirring frequently, until fragrant and lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer the pine nuts to a small bowl and let cool.
In a large saucepan, combine the water with the salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the pork and cook, stirring, until white, about 1 1/2 minutes. Drain the pork in a colander, then transfer it to a serving bowl and toss with the ginger.
Spread the lettuce leaves in a basket and spoon the kimchi into a small bowl. Have guests serve themselves, filling the lettuce leaves with the ginger pork, kimchi and pine nuts.
