How To Make a Ronto Wrap at Home (Copycat Recipe)

Where you are looking for a fun, Star Wars-themed meal or want to bring the Disney Parks home, ronto wraps are a delicious treat you can share with your family. First published in The Official Disney Parks Cookbook by Pam Brandon, the D23 blog shared the Ronto Wrap recipe to celebrate Star Wars Day in 2023. While an authentic Ronto Wrap copycat recipe, there are a few issues to consider.

But fans have been making homemade ronto wraps long before the Disney Parks Cookbook came out in 2023. Taking into account the official recipe, our recipe is easier and just as delicious as the wraps you get at Ronto Roasters on Batuu. Get ready for a delicious Star Wars dinner with the Galaxy’s Edge ronto wrap recipe.

The Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Discord Ronto Wrap Copycat Recipe

If you want to enjoy Ronto Roasters from home, here is our simplified copycat recipe that tastes almost identical to the original. It’s the perfect recipe for a Star Wars marathon or a taste of Batuu any night of the week.

With just 30 minutes of cooking time and about another hour of mostly inactive prep time, you can have this meal ready quickly. Plus, you can make almost everything in the ronto wrap recipe in advance. This allows you to make one in as little as 15 minutes.

Roasted Pork Ingredients

  • 1 ½ to 2 pound pork tenderloin (one whole pork tenderloin)
  • canola oil to coat (about a tablespoon)
  • 2 tablespoons coarse salt (such as kosher or sea salt)
  • 6 to 8 grinds of black peppercorns

Slaw Ingredients

  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • ½ green cabbage, grated
  • ⅓ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt (such as kosher or sea salt)
  • 8 to 10 grinds of black peppercorns

Peppercorn Sauce Ingredients

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (juice from half a lemon)
  • zest from half the lemon
  • ⅛ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tablespoon coarse salt (such as kosher or sea salt)
  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
  • 10 to 12 grinds of black peppercorns

Sausage and Pita Ingredients

  • 8 quality pork and beef hot dogs (Or all pork sausages, see below)
  • 8 pitas
  • Cooking spray

Roasted Pork Cooking Steps (Two Hours or Less)

Remove the silver skin from the pork tenderloin with a sharp fillet knife. Then place the tenderloin in a small roasting pan or baking sheet and rub it with enough canola oil to coat, about one tablespoon.

Spinkle to coat with kosher or sea salt and grind fresh black pepper on all sides of the pork Cover with plastic wrap or a tea towel and allow the pork to come to room temperature, about one hour.

Set your air fryer to 350°F (177°C) and cook until the pork reaches 145°F (63°C), about 20 minutes. If using an oven, set to 325°F (163°C) and preheat for 30 minutes. Bake until the pork reaches 145°F (63°C), about 25 to 30 minutes.

Move the pork tenderloin to a cutting board and let it rest for at least 15 minutes before slicing thinly on the bias. Resting the meat will help keep the slices juicy while cutting on the bias – at an angle – will keep them tender and easy to chew.

However, you can make the pork in advance and refrigerate for up to two days. Leave the pork whole and let it cool completely. Then put it in the refrigerator for up to two days. Slice the tenderloin on the bais while cold, then reheat quickly in a dry skillet.

Slaw Cooking Steps (15 Minutes or Less)

Use a food processor with a grater blade, a box grater, or a mandolin with a grater blade to shred one large carrot and half of a head of cabbage.

Pour the shredded cabbage and carrot into a large mixing bowl and toss to combine with the remaining ingredients. Ideally, make the slaw the night before so the flavors can meld. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Peppercorn Sauce Cooking Steps (5 Minutes or Less)

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. If possible, make the sauce a day or two in advance and refrigerate until ready to serve.

As with the ronto slaw, this will help the flavors in the sauce meld. Overall, your wrap will be more flavorful.

Sausage and Pita Cooking Steps

Heat a heavy skillet over medium heat. Lightly coat the skillet with cooking spray and grill the pitas on both sides. Add more cooking spray after each pita.

Wrap the pitas in a tea towel or put them into a warm oven until ready to assemble. Then grill the hot dogs or sausages until barely blistered, approximately 6 to 8 minutes.

Assembling the Ronto Wraps

Distribute the pork tenderloin slices evenly over the pitas, then top with a grilled sausage.

Add one to two tablespoons of slaw and drizzle with the peppercorn sauce. The best part of making homemade ronto wraps is you can add as much slaw and sauce as you like.

Serve with your favorite side and enjoy. Let leftovers cool separately, then refrigerate.

About Our Changes to the Ronto Wrap Recipe

Listen, there is nothing wrong with the official ronto wrap copycat recipe. If you make it, it’s going to taste very close to what you get in the parks.

The problem is that it uses some ingredients that are hard to come by or you might not use them again. Specifically the pork shoulder, sambal, sumac, Szechuan peppercorns, and pork sausages.

Our substitutions and other alternatives are explained below. The official copycat recipe is included below for reference.

Substitute Pork Tenderloin for Pork Shoulder

I cook. A lot. And I have never seen a two-pound pork shoulder. Also called pork butts, most boneless shoulders are 8 to 12 pounds. While some butchers will cut a piece special for you, it’s rare.

Although the tenderloin is a leaner cut than the shoulder or butt, it is much simpler to prepare. However, avoid getting a pre-marinaded tenderloin, as that can throw off the flavor.

Not authentic, but you could use bacon instead. The bacon matches the fat content of the pork butt, adding a different texture but a similar flavor.

Replace Sambal With Sriracha

Sambal is a spicy chill paste common in Southeast Asian cooking. It adds a slight kick but still has flavor.

However, sriracha is a more common ingredient in most kitchens today. And truthfully, sriracha is basically blended up sambal with spices like garlic.

You can use whichever you like, and probably won’t notice much of a difference unless you use a lot of Asian chili pastes or hot sauces.

Change Sumac and Lime Juice to Lemon Juice, Lemon Zest, and Paprika

Sumac is a tangy and acidic spice that adds a unique lemony flavor and a slight reddish color. But you might need to visit a specialty grocery store or spice shop to find it. And as far as spices go, it’s on the priceier side.

Instead of tracking down sumac, I recommend changing the lime to lemon juice and adding a little lemon zest and paprika.

While you lose the bright zip of the lime juice, the lemon juice adds the right acidity and tang. The lemon zest gives the acidic tang, while the paprika adds the red color. Plus, it adds a little smokey note that accents the grilled sausages.

Another alternative to sumac is za’atar spice mixture. Za’atar is traditionally a blend of toasted sesame seeds, dried sumac, and salt. It often includes other herbs and spices as well.

If you use za’atar in place of the sumac, you should use less salt. Instead of the half tablespoon, use one and one-quarter teaspoons of salt.

Substituting Black Peppercorns for Szechuan Peppercorns

Although Szechuan peppercorns are authentic, many people think they taste like soap. Also, many mistakenly think they are spicy. They do have a unique flavor, but they are not really spicy.

Still, you are more likely to have – and use – black pepper at home. Use a pepper grinder set to a course grind for the right balance of spice and flavor.

If you want a little heat and complexity, add one to two drops of sriracha. The sriracha will enhance the red color as well.

However, I strongly recommend not using ground black pepper. While convenient, it will not offer the same flavor. If you do have to use ground pepper, start with ⅛ teaspoon and then add a pinch at a time until you get the desired flavor.

Replace Pork Sausages With Beef and Pork Hot Dogs

While all pork sausages have a unique flavor, they are hard to find. At least the hot dog-style sausages that Disney uses for their ronto wrap recipe.

Whereas beef and pork hot dogs are much more common. While any brand will do, value hot dogs will lack some of the complexity.

For the best results, choose a hot dog with a natural casing. This will give the right amount of snap needed in the ronto wrap recipe.

Alternatively, the ronto wraps work perfectly with spicy meatless sausages. Even if you aren’t vegetarian, many different vegetarian sausages stand up against the flavors perfectly.

While not authentic, I especially like the spicy Italian or Mexican-style meatless sausages. They add the right kick to any ronto wrap, especially if you are a fan of spicy things.

The Official Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Recipe

Here is the ronto wrap recipe published by D23:

Roasted Pork Shoulder:

  • 2 pounds pork butt
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons coarse salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Ronto Wrap Slaw:

  • ⅓ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2½ tablespoons sambal
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage

Peppercorn Sauce:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground sumac
  • ½ tablespoon coarse salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ⅛ teaspoon Szechuan peppercorns

Grilled or Toasted Pita Bread:

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 8 pita flatbreads

Grilled Sausage:

  • 8 (4-ounce) smoked sausages

Their recipe includes the following footnote:

This recipe has been converted from a larger quantity in the restaurant kitchens; the flavor profile may vary from the restaurant’s version.

Which basically means, they had to scale down the recipe from Galaxy’s Edge. And that totally makes sense. Disney isn’t making eight ronto wraps. They are making hundreds if not thousands. This change also explains why they call for just two pounds of pork shoulder.

A popular alternative is a German-style Frankfurter Würstchen. A popular style of pork sausages, they are commonly called Frankfurters or weiners.
