Pulled Pork Series: Pork & Scallion Hoecake

Recipe One in the pulled pork series. It serves the sweet barbeque pork on a wonderful scallion-hoecake and is topped with a wasabi coleslaw. The corn in the cake enhances the sweet meat and the sweet barbeque sauce mellows the wasabi heat for a delicious blend of goodness.

Make a batch of sweet barbecue pulled pork. See Tuesday’s post.


Make the wasabi coleslaw: Empty a 10-ounce bag of ready-made coleslaw into a large bowl. In a small bowl mix 1 teaspoon soy sauce, 1 teaspoon wasabi paste (add more or less according to your heat tolerance), 3 tablespoons rice vinegar, 1 teaspoon sage honey, and 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil. Mix well. Refrigerate until ready to use.


In a medium bowl, whisk 1 cup flour, 2/3 cups cornmeal, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/4 cup sliced scallions.


In another medium bowl, whisk 1 egg, 1 egg white, and 1 1/4 cups milk until combined.


Pour the egg mixture into the cornmeal mixture and mix just to incorporate, then stir in 1/4 cup melted butter.


On a preheated griddle sprayed with cooking oil ladle batter onto griddle using 1/3 cup batter for each pancake; cook until bubbles form on tops, then turn to brown other sides.

Plating: Place a scallion hoecake on a serving plate. Spoon some pulled smoked pork on top of the cake. Top with a wasabi coleslaw. Garnish with sliced scallions and serve.
