Hungry, Are You?

It’s officially Star Wars Week here on the blog – we’re exploring the flavors from across the Galaxy, trying everything from Grogu’s soup to Sarlacc Pit Dip along the way.

The next stop on our journey? Galaxy’s Edge – Batuu, in fact – to taste test some of the best wraps in the universe.

Welcome to Galaxy’s Edge

Batuu is actually a very real place that you can visit in real life—and you don’t even need to hop on a spaceship to get there! Located in Hollywood Studios at Disney World in Florida, Batuu is not only the resting place for the Millennium Falcon, but also a spot where fans can roleplay as their favorite characters for a truly out-of-this-world (or should I say, off-of-the-planet?) immersive experience.

One of the many different restaurants found in Galaxy’s Edge is Ronto Roasters, where you can find an assortment of meats that have been smoked in the fumes of an old pod racer.

I’ve actually tried a Ronto Breakfast Wrap in person on Batuu and can attest this is quite a delicious grab-and-go meal. Their main lunch and dinner courses include a regular Ronto Wrap and Kyryll Pork Rinds (I’ll definitely try those next time!).

Unfortunately, I can’t live out my dreams of being a Jedi every day, so I’ll have to settle for recreating one of the most famous foods in Batuu in the comfort of my home on Earth.

Let’s Cook

First up, Hungry People, we’re going to get that pork shoulder ready for the smoker. Prep your smoker and heat it up to 275°F. While it’s warming, let’s give that pork some flavor. Rub that pork shoulder generously with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a good dusting of paprika. This isn’t just about flavor—it’s about creating a crust that will hold up to the smoke and keep all the juices locked in.

Once your smoker is ready, place the pork on a rack or baking sheet with a rack. Toss in some wood chips for that extra smoky flavor—I like to use applewood for a hint of sweetness. Now, let it smoke for about 2-3 hours, or until that pork reaches an internal temperature of 160°F. Trust me, the patience will pay off.

After it’s smoked to perfection, let it rest at room temperature for about 30 minutes. This lets the juices redistribute, making sure every slice is as juicy as it can be. Then, slice it thin, about 1/8th inch thick, to get ready for those wraps.

Creating the Slaw

While your pork is resting, let’s whip up that slaw. In a large bowl, whisk together apple cider vinegar, chili paste, coconut palm sugar, and garlic powder. Toss in the cole slaw mix and some finely chopped parsley for a fresh kick. This slaw isn’t just a side—it’s the crunchy, tangy contrast to our rich pork. Give it a good mix and then pop it in the fridge to chill until we’re ready to assemble.

Mixing the Peppercorn Sauce

No Ronto wrap is complete without a zingy sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, cracked peppercorns, fresh lime juice, sumac, coriander, and a pinch of salt. If you’re brave like a Jedi, add some chili flakes to taste. Chill this sauce too; it’s going to tie all our flavors together.

Assembly Time

Now, let’s get everything together. Toast your chalupa wraps or naan flatbreads until they’re nice and pliable—about 2-3 minutes should do it. This makes them easier to fold without breaking, because nobody likes a wrap that falls apart mid-bite.

Heat your smoked sausages or hot dogs on the grill or back in the smoker for about 10 minutes, just to get them nicely heated through and a bit crispy.

Spread a spoonful of that peppercorn sauce on the wrap, lay down a slice of pork, add a sausage, and top it with a heap of that chilled slaw. Fold it in half and you’ve got yourself a wrap worthy of a trip to Batuu.

Galactic Cooking Tips

  • Perfecting the Smoked Pork: When smoking pork shoulder, maintaining a consistent temperature in your smoker is key. If the temperature fluctuates too much, the meat can dry out or cook unevenly. Always use a meat thermometer to check that the internal temperature reaches 160°F for perfect doneness.
  • Balancing the Slaw’s Flavor: The slaw should have a good balance of sweet, tangy, and spicy. After mixing your slaw, taste it and adjust any of the seasonings to your liking. If it’s too tangy, add a little more sugar. If it’s too mild, a bit more chili paste can kick it up a notch.
  • Sauce Consistency: The peppercorn sauce should be creamy but not overly thick. If it’s too thick, a little extra lime juice or a splash of water can help thin it out. The sauce should be easy to spread but still hold its own on the wrap without dripping off.
  • Wrapping Technique: When assembling your wraps, don’t overload them; this can make them difficult to fold and eat. Spread a thin layer of sauce, then layer the meats and slaw for a balanced bite. Toasting the wraps makes them pliable and easier to handle, preventing them from tearing when you fold them.
