Bossam is a traditional Korean way to cook pork. Shoulder, foreleg or belly meat is recommended. Doenjang (Korean bean paste), a can of beer, and a coffee mix (or a tablespoon of coffee) are used to remove the distinctive smell of pork.

The Korean pork dish is normally served with Ssamjang, a sauce made of Doenjang and Gochujang (traditional hot chili paste) but it's also great with garlic sauce. Bossam suits nicely as a meal or a side dish for wine parties.
