  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 2 pieces raw egg
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs or 3 pieces sliced bread cut into really small pieces
  • 1 big carrot - diced (small)
  • 1 big onion - diced (small)
  • 1 medium green bell pepper - diced (small)
  • cup sweet pickle relish
  • 3 tablespoons tomato sauce or ketchup
  • cup raisins
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoons pepper
  • 6 pieces Vienna sausage or 3 hotdogs
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs - each cut into 4


  • Put all ingredients, except the last 2, in a large bowl.
  • Mix everything together using your hand to make sure that all is well incorporated. Set aside.
  • Cut 2 pieces of aluminum foil about 12 inches long each. Take half of the meat mixture and flatten it on of the foil, covering about a half. Don't forget to leave some space at the ends, about 2 inches each side.
  • Place the sausages and hard boiled eggs on the middle of the flattened meat.
  • Roll the foil so that the meat forms a cylinder or log, locking the sausage and egg in the center. Twist the ends of the foil to lock.
  • Steam for 50-60 minutes.
