Three different acidic elements help cut the fat of the pork and the richness of the mashed potato. Kimchee brings fermented spicy flavor, tamarind has a cutting acidity, and the avocado ceviche provides citric counterpoint. Actually, the pork and kimchee alone make a great combination. I originally wanted to mix coarse mustard in the potatoes and intended more of a tamarind jus that ended up a gravy, but still proud of it. I would've preferred either a tenderloin or pork belly for this dish, but as the title suggests, I was feeding the recession and emptying out the fridge.
