We are still talking toppings for the kale pancakes.
So where are we? We have the pancakes, we have some roasted yams, now we need something a little more substantial. Assuming you are into that sort of thing. It is perfectly acceptable to stop there if meat doesn’t ring your bell!
But on this occasion, we’re going to have a little something more. I’m gonna call it BBQ “ish” pork, cause it isn’t REAL BBQ, it doesn’t even play it on TV!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Some pork. I used some stir fry type strips that I found already cut that way in the meat section at my grocer but you could also just get some pork chops and cut them up, or a pork shoulder, whatever is easy.
- 1 large onion in large slices
- 1 clove fresh garlic chopped
- 1/2 red bell pepper cut in strips
- 1/2 yellow bell pepper cut in strips (you can use whatever colour you happen to have)
- 1 small can tomato sauce
- 1 tsp smokie cumin powder
- 1 tsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp chili flakes ( or a few good shots of Chipotle Tabasco )
- salt & pepper
Get your pan nice and hot and give it a little drizzle of oil, olive or organic canola oil. Then first add the onions and cook for a minute or two. Then add in your pork and get a good bit of brown on it, continually tossing. When those two items have had a good head start, add in what ever peppers you have.
Next we will add the chopped garlic,spices, brown sugar and hot sauce if using. Stir those in till they are well mixed, then add the tomato sauce. Stir this all up and put a lid on it and turn it down to a slow simmer. Cook for at least half and hour, but the longer the better.
Now you have all your elements, it’s time to put them together.
First the kale pancake, then top with BBQish pork on one side and roasted yam on the other.
But your imagination is all you need to find your own fine toppings.
My friend has asked if we could make the kale pancakes thinner and crepe like and then fill them with delicious fillings and I think, WHY NOT!!
In fact, I am going to try that very thing in the near future. Stay tuned.
