Potato Salad Pork Rolls II

Japanese cooking uses thinly sliced beef and pork for many dishes.  One of the most common way to utilize these thin slices of meat is to roll something with it.

Potato Salad Pork Roll Recipe | JustOneCookbook.com
In my blog, I’ve shared several beef and pork roll recipes so far and they are:

Using sliced meat allows us to be very creative and I like hiding veggies in the meat so my kids tend to finish the vegetables with the meat (without even realizing they ate veggies).  The recipe I am sharing today is related Wednesday’s Japanese Potato Salad.  With the leftover potato salad, you can roll them with sliced pork.  This is my mother’s recipe and my dad, my brother, and I used to love eating this.  It’s one of the dishes that I feel nostalgic about.  I hope you enjoy this delicious pork roll.

Potato Salad Pork Roll
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4
  1. Place Japanese Potato Salad on the bottom end of a piece of sliced pork and roll to wrap it up with the sliced meat.
  2. Dredge the rolls in corn starch or sprinkle corn starch on top of rolls. Remove excess corn starch off from the meat.
  3. Heat 1 Tbsp. of sesame oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Gently place the meat rolls in the pan and brown all sides. Do not touch the meat unless the bottom of the meat is nicely golden color. Then turn to brown all sides. If you start turning the rolls too often, the potato salad will come out from the side. If you need more oil to brown the meat faster, add another 1 Tbsp. of sesame oil.
  4. When all sides are nicely golden browned, cover and cook 3 minutes on medium-low heat.
  5. Add Sauce. Shift the frying pan and rotate the meat rolls to coat evenly. Serve immediately.

    • でしょう?これがお弁当に入ってる日は、勉強に集中出来ないくらい楽しみでした(笑)。冷えても美味しくて、食べだすと止まらない危険性高いっ!エンジョイ!

  1. I love this! The potato salad recipe was great and I love that you gave us something to do with the leftovers. In New York they sell shabu shabu meat at quite a few places (like Sunrise Mart in the East Village) but here in Israel the closest thing we’ve got is chicken breast pounded very thin for schnitzel :-) But now I want to try rolling that!

  2. Nami, on Wednesday I wanted so much to make a potato salad as soon as I saw your post, but now I know I will make a huge batch of the potato salad only to have some leftovers and make these gorgeous rolls! They look at least as delicious as your Mashed Potato Pork Teriyaki Rolls which I have made at least dozen times and which are always excellent. (What are the cute green leaves on the first photo? Are these radish sprouts?).

    • We call it “Kaiware Daikon”. I’m not quite sure the English name for it… It has some bitter taste to it. We often use it for decoration or sushi or salad.

  3. That is such a great way to ‘recycle’ left-overs without giving the dish a ‘left-overy’ feeling. It sometimes comes in handy not having to do everything from scratch on one particular day. So far, I have only managed to pan-fry left-over potatoes or pasta. :)

    Oh, and the fabric is just too cute! Kinda poppy just like I could pop your little rolls right into my mouth! 😉


  4. Congrats on your blog awards again, Nami! 😀
    Beautiful presentation and what a great idea using just one recipe for two different dishes! 😉
    Both dishes make great snacks for gatherings, parties and all! LOVE IT! 😀

    Enjoy your weekends! :)

  5. Lovely recipe, Nami. I’ve already told you that I love Japanese potato salad. Now I love it more since it’s wrapped it pork. I like dishes that can be rehashed into something else.

  6. Your pork rolls look beautiful!!! Love that it is made using that amazing potato salad you posted. Like Katherine said the closest thing we have to shabu shabu is the schnitzle meat! Have a great weekend Nami!

  7. I LOVE IT! Hiding vegi in adorable rolls! Before “meeting” you, I never really know what to do with shabu meat. My Mom would only buy them when we eat hot pot at home, I used to buy them and cut the slices to smaller size for stir fry, really saved time on preparation. Though the rolls are just so much more fun to prepare and eat!

  8. Jamie @ the unseasoned wok

    Nami you never cease to surprise me with new ways to spruce up old dishes … and leftovers! Unjust had a huge container if leftover
    Potato salad that I forced myself to try and finish. I wishnj had this recipe last week. I’ll definitely think of this next time. Thanks!!

    • It’s still crispy because of the corn starch that I applied before cooking the meat. The meat is kept in shape and the corn starch will thicken the sauce later on. :-)

  9. These do look delicious even though I don’t eat pork, I love things rolled up and browned, also loved the potoato salad. Have a great weekend.

  10. These pork rolls look and sound so delicious! I don’t usually have a stock of potatoes at home though, so it might take some time until I’ll make them – I am more a rice person ;). I always somehow find that making something out of potatoes to be so much work ;). I wish we lived nearby that I could just knock on your door and beg you to give me some of these delicious-looking pork rolls, hehehe…;).

  11. Nami-had you not shown the step-by-step directions on the yummy pork rolls, I would not have any idea, even with the recipe and directions!
    These are amazing appetizers, and so unique that would “blow” the guest away!
    Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

  12. I’ve never had anything like this, but it looks so good! I initially thought they looked like egg rolls. Pork and potatoes… this is my kinda recipe.

    And I’m so glad you and your family liked the chicken and snow peas stir-fry!

  13. What a great rolls and awesome use of potato salad. Wonderful recipe Nami, I could eat these every day without complaining:)) I think even my kids would enjoy it! I really love all your photos, and presentation too! Have a wonderful weekend!

  14. Nami, you shared a very interesting dish!! Love your idea to hide veggies inside the pork and feed the kids with this trick!! hey, we moms always have a solution!
    But using up the potato salad in this dish is really a fantastic idea!! I am amazed…

  15. what a cool recipe! i liked how you said that you can hide veggies with the thinly sliced meat. such a kid friendly recipe yet looks soooo delicious. I’ve never had Japanese potato salad so I’d be interested in trying that too.

  16. This is such a surprise dish to me. I have never thought of putting potato salad inside of meat like that, but it is brilliant! My kids would be thrilled to eat this. Thanks for sharing a unique recipe. Oh, and your photos are looking awesome Nami!

  17. Thats a great tip! hiding veggies in a roll of meat. In the Philippines we also have some similar tricks for kids to eat veggies like chopping them into small pieces and put them in a soup this was it will be hard for them to remove one by one every vegetables they see and flavour wont be over powering the dish they are eating as it is consumed in small amounts. But for me I never had issue with my daughter she eats everything without complain :)

  18. One potato salad eating two ways, your mom is so creative. So glad you create this blog as we can learn Japanese cooking from you and your mom. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Hi Nami,
    Happy holiday weekend to you… I know you are super busy with the kids and all but I admire your creativity in the kitchen. Girl you are on a roll.. and all the time haha.
    Definitely not a left over dish looking.. it’s a new dish in itself. I love it when left overs turn to be stars themselves .. hahah did you think what I just said made sense? Hahah..
    Enjoying your site as always,

  20. What a great way of using your leftover potato salad. Did you really had leftovers or did you just put some aside for this dish? I know I would =)
    Hope you had a great weekend!

  21. ポテトサラダの新しい活用法をみたw すごい美味しそう:)確かにお弁当とかにもよさそうなんで、今度つくってみよ。友達にもすすめるわ〜〜^^/~
