I personally think pork is an often under used and certainly an under rated meat, here you will find everything from staples such as home made sausages through to some of my favourite Fakeaway dishes. The humble pig provides a typically very lean meat that is often considered to have a tendency to dry out, however with a trusty meat thermometer you can create restaurant worthy dishes full of flavour that will convince the most porcine opposed diner!
These Sweet and Sour Pork Balls are just about close enough to be recognisable to the ones I would order (or have ordered for me) from the Chinese Takeaway when I was growing up but they are far enough removed to definitely be a reflection on my tastebuds now.
It is hard to believe that this dish is Japanese, in fact Tonkatsu has definite European leanings and lets face it, it is a schnitzel in all but name, but a schnitzel with the glorious flavours of Japan.
So here it is, a dish that I don't think could be more British if it tried, Roast Pork Belly, some red cabbage and a kick ass gravy, hell I even add some roast potatoes to give it the full British accent!
For some strange reason I usually associate meatballs with beef and with pasta so this pork meatball dish was developed to encourage me to do something a little new and different with my balls... Behave!
