Pork Boulettes

Louisiana Real and Rustic

Emeril Lagasse with Marcelle Bienvenu,
1996, William Morrow & Co.

"Almost every small-town grocery store or meat market in the state offers
Boudin and grattons, crunchy fried pork skins. And if you’re lucky, you’ll
find deep-fried pork boulettes, bite-size morsels made with ground pork
and rice. They’re great served as an hors d’oeuvre."

1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter
3 tablespoons plus 3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup chopped bell peppers
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 cups cooked medium-grain rice
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
2 cups dried fine bread crumbs
3 teaspoons Rustic Rub
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
Solid vegetable shortening for deep-frying

1. Brown the pork in a small skillet over medium-high heat. When browned, remove from the skillet with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 3 table-
spoons of the flour and, stirring constantly for 4 to 5 minutes, make a
dark brown roux, the color of chocolate.
2. Add the onions and bell peppers. Stir constantly for 3 to 4 minutes until wilted. Add the pork and cook stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the water, salt, and cayenne. Reduce the heat to medium-low.
Simmer for 45 to 50 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the rice,
 green onions, Tabasco, and 1/2 cup of the bread crumbs. Mix well.
Remove from the heat and let cool for about 20 minutes.
3. Put the remaining 3/4 cup flour and remaining 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
in separate shallow bowls. Season each with 1 1/2 teaspoons of the rub.
Beat the egg and milk in a small bowl.
4. Shape the pork and rice mixture into balls the size of walnuts. Dredge
them in the flour, dip in the egg mixture, then dredge in the bread
5. Heat the shortening to 360 degrees F. in a deep-fryer or deep cast-iron
pot. Deep-fry the balls, five to six at a time, until golden brown. Drain
on paper towels. Or bake the balls on a baking sheet for about 355
minutes at 400 degrees F. Serve hot. Makes about 2 dozen.
