    Skinless Pork Sausages

    We really don’t know what is in the store-bought sausages, do we? It would be good if I could make sausages at home knowing exactly what is in them. However, sausage making is not an easy task.

    Teriyaki Eggplant & Pork Mince

    This Pork Mince filling is almost same as Gyoza filling. I simply sandwiched it with Eggplant slices, then fried.
