Cambodian Stuffed Tomatoes
10 medium sized, yellow or lightly red tomatoes(the less ripe, the better)
1 lb ground pork(I grind my own from a pork loin or roast for better quality meat)
2 Tablespoons oyster sauce
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt or chicken bouillon
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
2 Tablespoons freshly minced saw leaf or cilantro
1/2 tsp. salt
Cut tomatoes in half and remove all pulp. Turn cut side down onto paper towel and let drain. Next, combine pork with all seasonings and mix with hands until all seasonings are thoroughly incorporated. Now, stuff each tomato half with about ! tablespoon of the pork mixture. Then, add 3 tablespoons oil to a large skillet and heat on medium-low heat. Place stuffed tomatoes open-side down into pan and cook for about 15 minutes or until tomatoes have softened a little. Then, flip onto other side and continue cooking an additional 10 minutes. Do not cook too fast because the pork will not be cooked thoroughly. Both sides of the tomatoes need to be heated to thoroughly cook the pork. Makes 20 stuffed tomatoes.
