Barbecued Shredded Pork with Corn Crepes and Avocado Salsa
recipe from Bradley Ogden's Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Yield: Serves 8

  • 1/4 cup corn flour
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 Tablespoons minced chives
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce (separate recipe)
  • 4 cups shredded cooked pork
  • Avocado Salsa (separate recipe)

In a medium mixing bowl sift together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl combine the egg, milk, and melted butter. Make a well in the dry ingredients and gradually beat in the egg mixture. Stir in the chives. Let the batter rest for 30 minutes before using.

Heat a well-seasoned crepe pan over medium heat until almost smoking. Butter lightly and pour in about 2 tablespoons of batter, just enough to make a thin 5-inch crepe, tilting the pan to distribute the batter evenly. Bake until golden brown, cooking on one side only. Remove the crepe from the pan and continue with the remaining batter, stacking the warm crepes on a plate.

Heat the barbecue sauce in a medium saucepan and add the shredded pork. Stir to coat the pork evenly with the sauce. Simmer gently for a few minutes to make sure the meat is heated through. Fold or roll the crepes around the filling. Top with any remaining barbecue sauce and serve the avocado salsa on the side.

  • 1 or 2 serrano chilies (according to taste), finely minced
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • kosher salt to taste

In a medium-size bowl, mix the minced white onion and 2 tablespoons of the lime juice. Set aside while preparing the tomato and avocados. Core and cut the tomato into 1/4-inch dice. Cut the avocados in half, remove the seeds, scoop out the flesh. Cut the flesh into 1/2-inch dice. add the tomato, avocado, minced chilies and cilantor to the onion mixture. Taste for seasoning and add salt, lime juice or minced chili as needed. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let the salsa stand for about 1/2 hour before serving.

  • 2 Tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 Tablespoon chili flakes
  • 1/2 anaheim chili, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces
