Kalua Pig and Green Onion Hash

Here is another dish that Wendell made following a recipe that he saw in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. This one is by Betty Shimabukuro.  Because I'm low-carbing, I only ate half a patty, but it was good.


Kalua Pig and Green Onion Hash 

1 pound russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) butter
1 pound kalua pork, cooked, roughly chopped
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup chopped green onion (green part only)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1 cup vegetable oil

Cook potatoes in boiling salted water until soft, about 20 minutes. Drain and let dry 10 minutes, then lightly mash. A few small lumps are all right.

Meanwhile, saute onion in butter until soft and light brown, about 5 minutes.

Mix mashed potatoes with cooked onion, kalua pork, egg yolks and green onions. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Form mixture into 8 patties. Press panko onto both sides of each patty.

Heat oil in skillet to 350 degrees. Fry patties until golden brown on both sides, working in batches. Drain on paper towels. Serves 8.

Oh my! Wendell is TOO good at temptation! Good thing you have self control - I think I would have had 2 of them.
You make me so hungry - and it is lunchtime so I'll have my boring Sapporo Ichiban saimin with kimchee.
