Umeboshi add zest to pork rolls / JAPANESE HOME COOKING

Bookmark and Share
MAKING your own umeboshi, or pickled Japanese apricots, may be a bit daunting. But try incorporating them in cooking. Choose the traditional kind made of only plum and salt. It will add zest to meat rolls using pork thinly sliced for shabushabu.
A key is to lay the meat slices in a way they form a rectangle. "The rectangle makes it easier to roll and well-formed," says cooking expert Atsuko Matsumoto. Beef slices may be used instead of pork, while plum rice may replace nagaimo yam in the center, she says.

INGREDIENTS

For pork rolls with umeboshi and shiso (serve two):

* 20 thin pork slices (200 grams)
* 20 green shiso leaves
* 2 tsp umeboshi paste (1 medium-sized umeboshi)
* 200 grams nagaimo yam
* 2 tsp cooking oil
* Seasoning (2 tsp soy sauce, 1 Tbsp each of sake and mirin sweet sake)

For ume rice (serves four):

* 2 go rice (360 cc)
* 2 umeboshi

METHOD

To make pork rolls, remove the pit from the umeboshi, turn into paste by chopping it with a kitchen knife. Mix seasoning.

Peel and cut nagaimo into sticks that are 1.5-cm square and 6-cm long. Prepare 10 sticks. Cut off stems from shiso leaves.

Lay two pork slices so the narrow part of one lies next to the thick part of the other. Sprinkle with pepper. Lay two shiso leaves lengthwise on the meat, spread umeboshi paste and place the yam stick on top. Roll from the end closer to you and place the seam face down. Make 10 rolls.

Heat cooking oil in a frying pan and place the rolls with the seam face down over medium flame. Once the underside is set, roll with chopsticks and cook all sides. Add seasoning and coat the rolls.

To make ume rice, rinse the rice and place in a rice cooker with the usual amount of water. Place umeboshi on top and cook as usual. When done, remove umeboshi pits, mix with rice while breaking them up and serve.
