  • Servings: 10-12

Ingredients:

5 cups Rice
1 Pork Roast
2 Medium White Onions, chopped
1 bunch Green Onions
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic
2 Tbsp Black Pepper
4 Tbsp Garlic Powder
2 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper
4 Tbsp Onion Powder
2 Tbsp Salt, optional
Flour
Oil

Directions:

Slice roast into 3 inch chunks, add to 8 cups water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn temperature down and cook for 1-1/2 hours. Add onions and garlic then cook until onions are tender. While this is cooking, prepare rice. If not using a rice cooker, use 2 cups water to 1 cup medium grain rice. When onions are tender, remove pork from pot. Remove from heat and add chopped greens onions to hot liquid still in pot. Take chunks of pork and run through a meat grinder. Mix cooked rice with pork. Reserve 2 cups of pork broth. Using a strainer, strain remaining liquid. Add vegetables to pork and rice mixture. Stir in well and add all dry spices and mix well. Add broth as needed, so mixture is not dry, but not liquified. Two cups should be work but it depends upon the brand of rice. When cooled, roll into 2 inch balls and roll in flour. Heat oil, drop in balls, and cook until lightly browned. If not using all mixture, or will be freezing it, do not roll in flour, just freeze in a resealable bag.
