How to make Crispy Pork and Cheese "Sushi Rolls"

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced pork loin (about 12 slices)
  • 8 perilla leaves (cut in half)
  • 1 ounce shredded cheese
  • 10 quail eggs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 egg
  • Bread crumbs
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Lemon wedges
  • Cabbage, shredded
  • Ponzu sauce (optional)

Steps

  1. Lay 6 pork slices onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Lay 4 pirella leaves and 1/2 the amount of shredded cheese onto one side of the pork slices. Place 5 quail eggs on top.
  3. Roll it up tightly, using the plastic wrap to help you. Make sure the ends of the meat touch to prevent the cheese from oozing out. Repeat once more, using the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Lightly flour the pork rolls. Then dip them into the egg, followed by the bread crumbs.
  5. Deep fry in hot oil (about 320 degrees F) until golden brown and crispy. (5-7 minutes)
  6. Cut into bite-sized pieces and serve hot with lemon wedge and shredded cabbage. Enjoy with ponzu sauce or your favorite condiment.
