Redneck Eggrolls, Asian Style
This is from a post I made on the Stumps Website a year or so ago. I liked it so much, I am going to be making some soon and thought all of you might like to try it yourself.
Kudos to Jeanie over at Cowgirl's Country Blog for the pork marinade recipe...
Now, when you get down to it, we are all tinkerers in the kitchen. Sure, we have our recipes that will never change: Grandma's Biscuit Recipe, Apple Pie Recipe, etc... But, we always think we can make something better. These experiments come out one of 3 ways:
1. What was I thinking...
2. Not bad, needs more work.
I had one of those WOW moments today. Asian Style Redneck Eggrolls...
Took a boneless 3 lb butt and marinaded in this marinade:
Let me tell you guys something, this was the best pulled pork I have made in awhile. You might call me crazy, but I think you could do very well at a competition with this stuff. If you could make a nice asian BBQ sauce, you would be made. It was out of the box, but not too far. It had the right BBQ flavors, but something that made you ask, "What is different about this?" It tasted like pulled pork, but at the same time, it was just different, in a good way.
What would I change?
1. More cabbage to pork ratio.
2. Maybe double the sauce added to the slaw.
3. Don't mince the cabbage so fine.
Kudos to Cowgirl for the marinade recipe...
If I ever get around to a catering business, this is on the menu for sure
