the amazing glaze

 Here’s another food entry and it’s something I miss from home. So over Skype, I asked mom for the recipe, and prepared it for dinner tonight.I call this The Amazing Glaze but for those menu-type descriptions, it’s “Pork & Egg Roll in Pineapple Glaze, served with pineapple slices and asparagus.” This recipe serves two.The ingredients:- 2 fillets of pork loin- 2 eggs- A can of pineapple juice- Brown sugar- Pineapple slices and asparagus- Salt and pepperThe procedure:Cut through the fillet horizontally to make a thin layer. Season it with freshly ground black pepper and salt. On a separate pan, fry an egg, which you will then put on top of the raw meat. Roll the pork-and-egg-combo and secure it with a string. Do the same for the other roll.Cook the rolls in pineapple juice, with the heat set on High. Sprinkle a generous amount of brown sugar. After some time, depending on the state of the meat (you want it cooked and tender), lower the heat for the pineapple juice to thicken and the brown sugar to caramelize.Make the dish pretty with some pineapples and asparagus. You can decorate it with anything, according to your culinary flair and artistic vision. Bon appetit!

    (Translation: Hey Mark! Back to back recipe posts. You must be cooking a whole damn lot lately. I understand it’s inspiring to cook when you’re doing it for someone. Yipee ;-) )

    Partly, yes. Hehehe. When you’re bored, Juon, you’d like to keep your hands preoccupied all the time.

    You should, Paul, you can accessorize it, too!

    I’m sure you’ll have a pretty husband who’ll cook this for you, and anything else you want, Shigeki!

    Thanks, Charles! My last two posts were inspired by your Queer Chef entries.

    Thanks, Expat Traveler! I’m not too fond of pineapple on my food either, but it’s just there for presentation purposes. Hehehe.
