Sometimes it’s all about a good concept.
I had seen several times before the idea of a BBQ egg roll and lately the idea of a hoisin pork had been running through my head. Hoisin pork teamed up with an Asian slaw. All wrapped up in an egg roll wrapper and fried. Yeah, that idea has been tempting my pallet for a few weeks on the to do list.
Hoisin Pork Asian Slaw Egg Rolls
A little mix of me and some Emeril, Guy, and google.
For the Pork:
- 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbs sesame oil
- 2 tbs rice vinegar
- 1 tbs minced garlic
- 1 tbs minced ginger
- 1/2 teas freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 teas red pepper flakes
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1 2lb pork loin
In a bowl, whisk together hoisin sauce through honey. Place pork in a crock pot set to low, cover in hoisin sauce mixture.
Cook on low for 3 to 4 hours (or until pork pulls apart with a fork easily). Shred pork.
Spicy Asian Slaw
adapted from L Brooks Cooks
for the slaw:
for the dressing:
- 4 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 4 teaspoons sugar
- 1-2 teaspoons red chili flakes
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, lightly toasted
Finely chop the cabbage into thin strips. Do the same with the vegetables if needed.
In a large bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients. Add vegetables, and toss well to coat. Refrigerate for a few hours if you have time, to really let the flavors soak in.
Hoisin Pork and Asian Slaw Egg Rolls
In a small bowl, lightly whisk eggs and milk together.
Lay egg roll wrappers with a point facing you, brush edges with egg mixture. Place about 2 tbs of pork and slaw on the wrapper. Fold over outer edge, up bottom and top edges and tightly wrap up the egg roll sealing off the wrap with the last corner. Repeat for all egg roll wrappers.
Fry egg rolls in oil for about 4 minutes. Drain and lay on a plate lined with paper towels.
To reheat, just preheat the oven to 350 and bake for 10 minutes.
Unfortunately, the same night I had been prepped to make this dish, I enjoyed a late lunch of chimichangas (cuz I can’t turn down Mexican) so I wasn’t able to gorge myself the way I had planned on these delicious hoisin egg rolls. But don’t worry – there were plenty left over for annihilation later.
