This is a fantastic appetizer that I had in Japan. With there being no fat on the pork and it being steamed, it's a very clean and tasty.

Ingredients

Directions

Wash the plums, then run a knife around them, twist them and remove the stones. Cut the halves into 1/2-inch (1 centimeter) dice. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the star anise, ginger, and garlic for 1 minute. Add the plums and sugar with a couple of tablespoons of water, place a lid on, and simmer slowly for about 20 minutes until chunky and pulpy. Allow to cool down in the refrigerator. Take your pork and trim off all the fat and sinews so that you are left with completely lean eye of meat. Cut into 1/4-inch (.5 centimeter) thick slices and 1 by 1 bash the slices between 2 pieces of plastic wrap, using something flat and heavy like the base of a heavy pan, a meat hammer or a cleaver. Try to retain the pork's shape. When each piece is around the thickness of 2 beer mats, carefully peel the meat away form the plastic wrap in 1 piece. Do this with all the meat and lay it out on a tray. Season the plum sauce, then stir in half the coriander. Smear 1 tablespoon of your sauce in the middle of each slice of pork. Spread out slightly so that the sauce covers about 3/4 of each slice and roll each one up like a Swiss roll. Put the rolls into a bamboo steamer (if you have one) or a normal steamer, or even use a colander covered in tin-foil. Place the steamer over simmering water and steam for 10 to 15 minutes until the meat is just cooked. Remove from the steamer and serve the pork rolls on a bed of finely sliced spring onion, sprinkled with the rest of the coriander and doused with lots of soy sauce.;
