That Wonderful Egoma Aroma! Egoma Leaf Wraps with Pork

I wrapped pork in egoma leaves!!
This is an economical dish as you can make 2 different versions, for adults and for kids, using the same filling.


Egoma leaves (or shiso leaves)
Ground pork
250 g
Onions (finely chopped)
Carrot (finely chopped)
☆Mirin (for pre-seasoning the pork)
1 tablespoon
☆Grated garlic
1 tablespoon
☆Japanese leek (the green part)
30 g
1/2 tablespoon
☆Soy sauce
1 tablespoon
☆Salt and pepper
a small amount
☆Sesame oil
1 tablespoon
1 cup
2 to 3


1. Cover the ground pork with a paper towel and press to remove juices.
2. Mix the ☆ ingredients with the ground pork, and let sit for 5 minutes.
3. Mix finely chopped onion and carrot with the mixture into Step 2. The filling is ready.
4. Wrap the filling from Step 3 in egoma leaves. Sprinkle a little flour on the filling before wrapping.
5. Fold the leaves in half and coat with the flour.
6. Finally, coat the wraps thoroughly with eggs. Pan-fry them over medium-low heat, and it's done.
7. Form the left-over filling into round patties and coat them with the flour then with the eggs and pan-fry them. It's also really good. This one is recommended for the kids who dislike the fragrance of egoma.
8. Please eat with a little ponzu and soy sauce!!
9. Two dishes are ready, the one without egoma is for kids and the other one is egoma wraps for adults The round patties are called Dong Goo Lang Daeng in Korea.

Story Behind this Recipe

I only used egoma leaves to wrap meat.
I wanted to use my favorite egoma leaves for other recipes too, so I made these.
