Method :
  • Soak dried mushrooms in hot water for about 30 minutes till soft.

  • Separate eggs into two bowls, whites in one, yolks in the other. Beat both, adding a little wine to the whites and yolks to make them more liquid.

  • Grease a frying pan with a little oil. Add a piece of pork to flavor the grease over medium heat, move it around, then remove.

  • Add egg whites with wine to pan and when firm, remove and place on a plate. Add more oil to the pan, then pour off excess oil and add beaten yolks.

  • Reduce the heat. When bubbles form on top of egg, turn off heat, and place omelet on another plate. Boil 500 ml water, add the banana leaf in to clean and soften. Strain and place leaf or moistened cheesecloth on a board.

  • Mix pork with sesame seeds, garlic, canned or fresh chili pepper, sugar, nuoc cham sauce and pepper to taste. Trim the dried mushrooms and add them. Add the fresh mushrooms and pound the mixture. Heat quickly in pan.

  • Use a spatula to spread one quarter raw pork mixture over the yolk omelet on a wok surface. Top with mushrooms. Add another layer each of pork and mushrooms, place an egg white circle on top then another pork layer. Roll flat with an oiled rolling pin. Add single sausage and trim. Gently roll and fill in roll end with pork.

  • Place roll on banana leaf or cheese cloth, tuck in ends, bind with string to hold shape. Steam in a double boiler for about 17 minutes. Remove till cool then refrigerate until cold.

  • On a serving platter, arrange cucumbers in a half-moon shape around the circumference. Arranged halved, cored and sliced tomato in front to resemble a heart shape. Remove leaf or cheese cloth from cold roll, slice in 1 in thickness and arrange in center of the plate, topped with parsley sprigs.
