How lovely is the texture of the Meat Roll. See the pieces of meat?

Again there are many versions of this meat rolls all over the world.  Even in Malaysia, there are many different ways people prepare the so called meat rolls.  In Northern Malaysia especially Penang, it is different from the Southern Malaysia in terms of ingredients used.  Some add vegetables such as sengkuang 'yam bean' and leeks.  My Ma's version is simple with no vegetables but it really taste good, can be prepared and stored in freezer for 1-2 months.  Friends who have tried our recipe gave us a thumbs up.  Popularly known as 'Lor Bak' in Penang.

Yes you can. Thaw and reheat in small oven toaster or oven at 100 C for 10 minuts. It will be very crispy.
