Directions for: Grilled Pork Skewers with Chile Sauce


Pork Skewers

¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce

¼ cup oyster sauce

3 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro leaves and stems

2 Tbsp finely chopped garlic

2 Tbsp sugar

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 ½ pounds pork tenderloin, cut into 16 pieces

16 wooden skewers (6-inch), soaked in cold water for 30 minutes

Chile Sauce, recipe follows

Chile Sauce

½ cup fresh lime juice

¼ cup fish sauce

1 Tbsp soy sauce

1 fresh Thai red chile, finely diced

2 tsp sugar

1 shallot, finely diced


Pork Skewers

1. Whisk together the soy sauce, oyster sauce, cilantro, garlic, sugar, and black pepper in a bowl.

2. Skewer 2 pieces of pork onto 2 skewers so that the meat lies flat. Place the pork skewers in a large baking dish. Pour the marinade over and turn to coat the pork. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.

3. Heat grill to high. Remove the skewers from the marinade and grill the meat on both sides until slightly charred and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Serve with Chili Sauce on the side for dipping.

Chile Sauce

1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Cover and let sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour before serving.
