BBQ Sushi

Had some leftover pork and decided to try to make some sushi with it. Rice paper wrapper, rice (duh), pulled pork, broccoli slaw (broccoli, carrot, vinegar, sugar, oil). A couple of dots of sriracha and is was pretty good. My technique could use inprovement but it's a good excuse to do it again.

    It was really good. I may try it rice out next time and sprinlke a little rub on the rice. The Sriracha went really weel with it. BBQ sauce was not as good. Definately worth the effort.

    Ok, I'm sold! :laugh: Where did you find the Sriracha? I've been looking all over.
  • Sriracha is GOOD stuff!!! Used it on our first Wok cook tonight ... we keep it on hand and use for the heat in everything from BBQ sauce to thai cooking ... always have it on hand. Find any grocery store with a decent international food section (in the asian section).

  • Awesome!!! Erin loves sushi ... she's from Seattle ... I'm from Iowa ... and now you've convinced me that I could love Sushi too!
  • Here is a Vietnamese spring roll technique that I think would work for you.

    Place the following on your rice paper wrapper in small elongated piles; rice, vegetables and meat. The size of the piles is decided by the size of the rice wrapper. They should be maybe the width and height of your thumb.

    Do this in the following manner:

    - Leave a space at the front and all sides of the wrapper, maybe about a thumb widths wide.
    - Place the rice
    - Leave another space
    - Place vegetables
    - leave space
    - place meat
    - leave space

    - make a fold on the left side by pulling the wrapper toward the center. It should go over the ingredients making a straight edge.
    - Do the same for the right side, this will leave both edges looking like straight edges of paper

    - Now take the front part of the wrapper that you left a space with and pull it up over the rice. Tuck it slightly under the rice. This creates the first part of the roll.

    At that point keep rolling, it will go up over the vegetables and then the meat. It will self seal where you left the spaces.

    This makes sense?
