  • 6 pork cutlets (each about 4"x3" and 1/4" thick)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 bell pepper cut into strips
  • 1 small carrot cut into strips
  • small bunch baby asparagus
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • oil for frying (no, not deep frying)
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce


  • Lay a pork cutlet flat and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Arrange strips of bell pepper, carrot and asparagus on one side. Roll as tightly as you can and secure with wooden toothpicks.
  • Repeat until all six pork cutlets have been filled and rolled.
  • Dredge the pork rolls in flour; shake off the excess.
  • Heat enough cooking oil to coat the bottom of a frying pan.
  • Fry the pork rolls, rolling them in hot oil for even browning. If the pork cutlets are thin enough, the pork rolls should be cooked through in five to seven minutes.
  • Pour the teriyaki sauce into the pan. Swirl the pan to coat every inch of the pork rolls. Continue cooking until the meat has absorbed the sauce.
  • Scoop out the pork morcon with teriyaki sauce. When cool enough to handle, remove the wooden toothpicks and slice.
  • Serve the pork morcon with bread, rice or salad.
