This is my current favourite! Just look at the cheeeeeze! Oooo! You got to like this! That is if you like cheese too!
I have to be honest. I didn't come up with this. I happened to see an episode of a Taiwan variety show and one of the guest was rewarded a 'block' of pork cutlet with cheese inside. What did I mentioned 'block'? Well, it looks like a piece of brick! Okay, slightly smaller than a brick but still it looks like a block of pork cutlet. The chef really did put a big block of cheese in the meat. It seems to me that that cheese is the main ingredient used and the pork was just there to compliment it. :P
Anyway, I didn't know how it done exactly but my version really simple and it tasted good. *thick skin* The pork is really soft, not tough at all. That is if you did your job will in hammering the meat well. And the cheese! Oooo ....
I won't go further. Try this to find out on your own!
- Palm size lead meat about 1.5 - 2 cm thick
- 1/2 teaspoon Light Soy Sauce
- 2 slice Sliced Cheese (I used Cheddar Cheese here)
- 1 Egg, beaten
- Plain Flour for dusting
- Breadcrumbs for coating
- Oil for deep frying
How to do it:
- Hammer the meat on both side with a meat mallet till the meat is really thin about 3 - 4 mm. The meat will became 1 1/2 to 2 times larger than the original size.
- Seasoned the meat with 1/2 teaspoon of light soy sauce for 10 minutes.
- Place cheese on one side of the meat. Try to keep the chesse away from the side as it will melt and sip through the meat when you fry.
- Fold the meat.
- Dust with flour.
- Dip in beaten egg.
- Coat well with breadcrumbs.
- Deep fry till it turn golden brown.
- Serve immdiately.
