Pork Rolls-Flamenquines


I made these Pork Rolls a few days ago. They are usually served as a meat starter in Spanish meals; but, I think they are just great as appetizers and make a wonderful party food. Try it!


Recipe adapted from Traditional Spanish Cooking by Janet Mendel

  4. @Ravenous Couple: I served them with a spicy tomato sauce that is meant for deep fried potatoes. (Patatas Bravas). I will post the recipe soon.
