Thai Pork Skewer Recipe Andy Groneman

Cooking Instructions

  • Chill pork until firm to ease slicing.
  • Slice the partially frozen pork into pieces about 1⁄8-inch thick; cut them into strips 1-to 11⁄4-inches wide
  • Stir together the garlic, marinade, oil, and 1⁄2 tsp white pepper.
  • Add the pork to the marinade and mix with your hands until evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Thread the pork onto 8”skewers, evenly dividing the meat among 12 skewers; make sure to pack it tightly.
  • Heat a grill to 350-400º, leaving an indirect zone if possible.
  • Place the skewers on the direct side of the grill and cook until lightly charred, about 3 minutes. Turn skewers, then brush with some of the coconut milk. Cook until the second sides are lightly charred, about another 3 minutes.
  • Flip the skewers again and continue to cook, occasionally brushing with coconut milk and turning every 2-3 minutes, until nicely charred on both sides.
  • Serve with the dipping sauce and enjoy!
