Stuffed Pork Roulades



I wanted to make some colorful and juicy stuffed pork roulades. I went to the butcher and asked for some suitable pork meat. He sliced for me three thin pieces of pork leg (schweine keule). I wanted to have have red, yellow and green fillings in my roulades, so I got some red bell peppers, juicy fresh mangos and nice and hot green jalapeƱos.

I put the pork pieces flat on a chopping board, sprinkeled some home made rub on them and filled them with:

- roasted and skinned red bell peppers + cream cheese

- fresh mango + blue cheese (gorgonzola)

- roasted and skinned jalapeƱos + cream cheese

I wrapped the roulades with plenty of bacon around them and sprinkeled more rub on them. In they went to my weber kettle


Smoked them for about 2 hours with apple wood in about 250F


Sliced them up and served them with my home made mango-habanero-bbq sauce. Absolutely delicious!


I'm quite happy with the result, except one thing. The Gorgonzola cheese does not look as nice as the cream cheese. It just made the meat look darker, so next time I'd skip the blue cheese and just use cream cheese only.
