Garlicky pork and asparagus pancakes

Yield: 4 servings


1/3 c Sifted all-purpose flour 3 lg Garlic cloves
4 ts Sugar – peeled and minced
1/4 ts Salt 2 ts Oriental sesame oil
1/4 ts Pepper 1/2 lb Tender young asparagus
5 lg Eggs; beaten until frothy -trimmed of coarse stem ends
1/2 lb Ground pork shoulder – peeled and cut into
6 md Scallions; trimmed – moderately fine julienne – sliced thin 2 tb Vegetable oil – (include some green tops) ——————————-DIPPING SAUCE——————————-
1 1″ cube ginger 1 tb Cider vinegar – peeled and minced 1 tb Mirin (sweet rice wine)
1/3 c Soy sauce 1 ts Hot sesame oil


SIFT THE FLOUR SALT PEPPER and 2 teaspoons of the sugar into a large bowl. Make a well in the center and pour the eggs into it. Stir just enough to combine the ingredients. In a medium skillet set over moderate heat stir-fry the pork scallions and two-thirds of the garlic in the sesame oil for 8-to-10 minutes until the pork is no longer pink; do not brown the meat. Add the asparagus toss for 1-or-2 minutes over moderate heat then allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. In a separate bowl combine the remaining ingredients except the vegetable oil to make a dipping sauce. When the pork mixture is cool stir it into the reserved batter. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over moderately high heat until ripples show on the skillet bottom. Half fill a 1/4-cup measuring cup with the batter and drop the batter into the hot oil evening up the ragged edges of the pancake. Add 3 more pancakes to the skillet smoothing the edges as before and brown them for 1-to-1 1/2 minutes per side. Drain them on paper towels then keep them warm on an uncovered platter in a 250F oven. Fry the rest of the pancakes adding more vegetable oil to the skillet if needed. Serve the pancakes hot with the dipping sauce. JEAN ANDERSON PRODIGY GUEST CHEFS COOKBOOK
