Hosting a global cuisine party is a great way to leave a lasting impression with your guests. Choose your menu carefully, and be sure to introduce the items that you are serving, pointing out specific ingredients that may be unfamiliar. A little knowledge goes a long way, and it becomes a great conversation starter.
Asian Pork Crepes
8-10 oz. pork tenderloin
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
3 Tbs. hoisin sauce
1 Tbs. brown sugar
1/4 cup plum sauce
4 radishes, julienned
1 large carrot, julienned
2 scallions, julienned
8 large crepes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a frying pan, heat oil and sear the tenderloin to lock in the juices and flavor. Once the pork is browned, place it in a preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes. Check the internal temperature with a meat thermometer. The meat is done at 160 degrees.
Cut pork into 1/8" thick slices. Cut some of these slices further into 1/2" wide strips. Mix hoisin sauce and brown sugar. Toss pork strips in this mixture. Cut the crepes in quarters.
To assemble each crepe, top with a dollop of plum sauce and a few strips each of pork, carrots, radishes, chives and scallions. Roll the crepes into cone shapes and place on serving a platter.
If you're hosting a party and children are invited, make them feel special with their own menu.
Enjoy good food, drinks and company, and revel in the ease and enjoyment of pulling together a successful meal.(10 photos)
