Caramelized Pork with Spaghetti Omelet


When I read BBO's pasta challenge, I knew I had to find time out of the crazy geek's schedule contest. (hahaha macam election pulak ;p) The challenge is (the challenge is still on going, quick, you still have time to submit your entries!) to make something fusion with spaghetti, San Remo's to be specific.


Anyway, after thinking of the challenge on the LRT to and from work for the whole week, I finally decided on the recipe. I had no name for this thing.., but I ended up with Caramelized Pork with Spaghetti Omelet aka Pork Dessert.


There is two parts to this "dessert". It's not a dessert actually, just looks like one when it's all stacked up. The Spaghetti Omelet, and the Caramelized Pork.

Ingredients for the Spaghetti Omelet
- 1 portion of spaghetti
- 3 finely diced olives
- 3 cloves of finely diced garlic
- 1 finely diced shallots
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- 5 cm of waxed Chinese sausages
- pinches of salt
- 4 eggs

Method;
1. Cook spaghetti until soft. Drain the water. Put aside.
2. In a pan, heat finely diced waxed Chinese sausages until they pop. (They tend to jump and pop around the pan because of the lard in the sausages) Leave aside.
3. In the same pan, heat olive oil and stir the garlic, shallots and black olives until fragrant. Add the waxed Chinese sausages.


4. Add spaghetti. Fry until spaghetti dries up and fragrant.


5. Remove from heat and cut them up to the length of approximately 3cm.
6. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until foamy.


7. In a pan, (you can still reuse the same pan, no need for oil because the pan will already be oily enough) make the egg omelet. Sprinkle the spaghetti mix on the egg before it cooks. Flip. Put aside to cool and repeat the next omelet until you use up all the ingredients.



Ingredients for the Caramelized Pork
- 1kg of pork. Get the streaky part of the pork.
- 3 flat tbs of white granulated sugar.
- 1 tsp of pepper
- 1 tbs of soya sauce

Marinate;
1. Wash and separate the skin from the pork. Keep the fats intact with the meat.
2. Cut the meat about 1.5cm apart.
3. Marinate the meat for at least 2 hours with sugar, pepper and soya sauce.

To cook;
1. Separate the pork meat and the juice.
2. Heat up your wok, stir fry the pork meat in mid-low fire. Keep stirring as the pork will brown and burn fast. The key is to keep the meat not too brown but cooked on the inside.
3. Turn up the heat when you get the meat brown and sticky. Pour in the juice.
4. Stir and remove from heat when the juice boils.


To assemble, lay the caramelized pork on each later of spaghetti omelet. Make sure the sauce from the caramelized pork goes on to each layer as you stack. You won't want the first layer to be juicy and the top layer a dry omelet.


There you have it, Caramelized Pork with Spaghetti Omelet. I hope the judge and his guests enjoyed this.

Ps, If you think this is all too weird and not worth the effort, just do the Caramelized Pork. Goes well with rice or porridge, or even plain white bread.

It does sound a bit weird to use pork as a dessert. Is it sweet like in satay, or sweet like in char siu pau? Visually, it looks great though.

really reminds me of pancakes layered with strawberries...this savoury junkie (literally) thought it tasted good. perhaps minced pork will make the cutting easier.
