Vegan Pork Slices

Not that I'd know what pork should taste like, but, thịt miệng đại loạn, sold as Vegan Pork Slices, tastes just like the  flavored soy product that it is - but, quite delicious with a good texture. It is easy to make - just soak in hot water for a few minutes and then cook it up with some vegetables,  and maybe some sauce, if preferred.

One of my favorite ways to flavor it is with fiery hot Nihari masala:
Dry roast
1 Tbsp cumin seeds
5 cloves
5 green cardamom,
1 black cardamom
2-inch stick cinnamon
2 bay leaves
1 tsp fennel seeds
¼ tsp ground nutmeg (optional)
1 Tbsp black peppercorns
8 dry red chillies (fewer if preferred)
½ tsp poppy seeds

Cool a bit and grind to a fine powder. Store in an air-tight container and use as needed.

  1. Steep 1 cup of dry vegan pork slices in hot water 
  2. Meanwhile slice some onions; cut a wedge of green cabbage into big chunks; slit some green chilies and slice some green bell peppers
  3. Heat a tablespoon of sesame oil in a pan, add some crushed garlic and grated ginger, then the onions, green bell pepper, and chilies; saute
  4. Then add the cabbage and the softened vegan pork slices, some salt, and some Nihari masala powder - taste and adjust the flavoring, adding a little of the Nihari masala at a time
  5. Stir well, cover, and allow the cabbage to wilt in its own water
  6. Off heat, garnish with cilantro
  7. Serve warm with roti or hot brown rice
