Rolled Pork with Carrot and Leek
Featured Recipe, Apr 08 2013With this recipe your spring picnics will be not only fun but delicious too!
In Japan we love the spring and the traditional custom of Hanami (flower viewing): going to the park to see and enjoy the beautiful cherry blossoms. And for Hanami, a yummy lunch box is essential and this delicious rolled pork is perfect for your Hanami or spring picnic :)
- sliced pork (100g)
- carrot (1/3)
- leek (1/3)
- *sugar (tsp 1)
- *soysouce (tbsp 1)
- *sweet sake (tsp 1)
- salt and pepper
Slice the carrot and leek. Season the pork with salt and pepper.
Put sliced vegetables along one edge of each piece of pork, then roll tightly. Heat oil into a frying pan, once hot add the rolled pork. Try to seal the roll closed by heating/cooking the open edge first.
Once the roll is sealed so that it will not unroll, continue to fry the rest of the rolls evenly on medium heat, turn occasionally to avoid burning. When the pork has cooked well, add *ingredients and stir fry to mix the sauce well.
Note; when you put them into a lunch box, cut the rolled pork half, which will give colour into your lunch box :) If you have "yakiniku no tare/ yakiniku sauce" then, you can use them instead of *ingredients.
