High 'wow' factor, low effort. David Chang's show-stopping Bo Ssam (Korean-style pork roast – we've used shoulder) is cured overnight in the fridge, slow-roasted until it falls apart, topped with brown sugar for caramelisation, wrapped in lettuce and served with accompaniments. If it's good enough for Momofuku, it's good enough for us!

Just because we're spending more time at home, doesn't mean that we don't need some quick meals that we can throw together in under half an hour. Broccoli and Pork Sausage is the perfect marriage of a savoury and indulgent dinner but also has the perks of being veg heavy and what makes it even better, is this recipe uses the entire broccoli from flowers to stalk!
