Here we have another delicious way to enjoy pork. Stuffed Pork Roll Taiwanese style 黑胡椒豬肉卷. This dish looks great when on the plate and has a wonderful aroma too. It’s a good main dish served with rice and vegetables of your choice, we had some greens from the garden and garnished with a little thyme from the front garden. We hadn’t cooked this for ages and were very happy with the tasty result of our efforts. Just look at the pictures!
The ingredients 食材 are as follows;
- 4 regular sized boneless pork steaks
- 4 spring onions (scallions)
- 2 small slices of fatty bacon, chopped into small pieces
- half a tsp black pepper
- a spring onion mashed in warm water (1/3 bowl) with ginger slices
- coating: – flour & beaten egg & breadcrumbs
- a little flour and water mixed to a paste to seal (glue) the rolls
- marinade – 1 tbsp soy sauce, sugar, salt, a dash or rice wine and sesame oil
The method 作法;
- flatten and tenderise the pork chops using your preferred method, we used a large cleaver
- put the marinade over the tenderised pork slices and massage it all so the sauce gets into the pork (then wait 20 mins)
- chop up the 4 spring ontions and bacon fat into very small pieces, add the pepper and pour in the ginger/onion water, rub it all together, add a little salt – this is the stuffing also a dash of sesame oil is nice!
- lay a pork steak on your table and put 1/4 of the stuffing on it, roll it like a very fat cigar (see video 4.30 minutes)
- when rolled use some of the flour/water ‘glue’ to close the join
- coat the roll in flour, egg, breadcrumbs – then give it a few minutes to stick
- heat the oil to medium heat and add the rolls
- when browned take them out and re-heat the oil until it is very hot
- now put the rolls back in the oil to crisp up, just a couple of minutes, don’t burn them
- drain and take away the oil on some tissue paper
- present them in slices on a plate, serve in Taiwanese style with herbs, vegetables and rice but they are also very good with mashed potato!
- yummy yummy, they were great!
