Oriental Pork and Walnut Nuggets
Thinly sliced pork is marinated briefly and rolled around a walnut half and quickly broiled. These will disappear quickly from your hors d’oeuvres table.
1 whole pork tenderloin, about 1 pound
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons dry sherry
1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
Walnut halves, as needed
- Slice pork across the grain, as thinly as possible. This is easy to do if pork is partially frozen. Slices should be about 1/16-inch thick.
- In medium bowl, stir together ginger, soy sauce, sherry, sugar and garlic; add pork and marinate 30 minutes.
- Remove pork slices to flat surface. Place a walnut half on each; roll up. Put pork nuggets seam side down on broiler pan; broil 4-inches from heat about 4 minutes on one side only.
Makes about 40 to 50 appetizer servings.
