    1
    teaspoon

    Directions
    Step 1
    Make the confit: Preheat the oven to 220 F. Using a casserole or any ovenproof dish, place pork belly inside dish and cover with the oil and fat.
    Step 2
    Cook in the oven until tender, about 4 hours. Cool in the oil then remove and cut into small pieces.
    Step 3
    To cook the egg place it in a temperature controlled water bath, such as an immersion circulator, at 145 F for 28 minutes. Transfer to an ice bath to stop the egg from cooking further. Reheat before serving and carefully peel.
    Step 4
    To make the fried rice heat a wok until hot. Add just enough vegetable oil to coat and the garlic. Cook, stirring until the garlic is toasted.
    Step 5
    Add pork belly and brown on all sides. Add fresh kimchee and both peas and stir together.
    Step 6
    Then add rice, packing it down slightly to let it toast on one side. Once toasted, slowly add the kimchee base and soy sauce and stir together.
    Step 7
    Remove from heat and stir in caramelized pineapple. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with the poached egg, sesame seeds and scallions.
