smitty2k2 Kalua Pork with Pineapple Mac Salad and Sticky Rice

I'm doing some research on Hawaiian BBQ, and I wanted to make oven roasted, banana leaf-wrapped pork, along with fresh-made Katsu sauce drizzled over it. Came out good, but the banana leaf imparted an intense, grassy note. Very nori-like taste. I liked it, but it was odd. Thoughts??

  •   friedriceandeggs Yeah, if you're not used to it, cooking with banana leaves can be a bit strong tasting. Maybe try wrapping in cabbage leaves? Usually Hawaiians will mix shredded cabbage with kalua pork for potlucks/luaus. 1d
  •   smitty2k2 @friedriceandeggs nice idea. I was thinking half wrapped in something (cabbage) and half wrapped in banana leaves. Thanks, this makes me feel better. Tasted kinda like Spam Musubi. 1d

smitty2k2 Butter Roasted Tomato Sauce over Spaghetti
Hand crushed San Marzano tomatoes, mixed with smashed garlic, minced anchovies, red chili flakes and herbs, all roasted to a jam-like consistency and mashed into a beautiful sauce. Topped over spaghetti, with fresh grated Parmesan and chopped fresh parsley. Awesome!! #foodporn #foodbeast #salivationarmyeats #spaghetti #bonappetit

  •   kydkit It's one of the hardest Thai dishes to nail, in my opinion. Tip: usually eaten with garlic chives or green onions not cilantro. 2w
  •   smitty2k2 @kydkit definitely my best version yet. Keep in mind, I don't even know if I've ever tried a perfect pad Thai myself. Thanks for the tip, though. 2w
  •   smitty2k2 Oh, and @kydkit ... What is the preferred protein? It called for shrimp, and I used marinated pork. 2w
  •   kydkit Definitely shrimp. My preferred place for good pad thai and most noodle dishes in LA is Saap @ 5183 Hollywood. It's been Bourdained. 2w
  •   smitty2k2 @kydkit thanks girl!! 2w
