Thai Grilled Pork and Beef Skewers
These skewers are a delicious snack we whipped up at some of the Thai Temptations cooking classes ahead of the ‘main event’ (our big lunch). They’re tasty and fuss-free, and I’ve had so many people email to say that these are now a staple for their BBQs repertoire. The beauty of these skewers is that you can prepare everything in advance then pop them on the BBQ and they’re ready in minutes.
Great as a canapé – serves 4
- 150g pork fillet or neck, cut into 5cms long strips
- 150g Beef Fillet, cut into 5cm long strips
- 12-15 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
- 1 tsp cleaned and chopped coriander roots
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1 tsp chopped garlic
- ½ tsp ground white pepper
- 2 tbsp shaved palm sugar
- dash soy sauce
- 2 tbsp fish sauce
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
To Make the Marinade
Using a pestle and mortar, pound the coriander root, salt, garlic and pepper in to a fine paste.
In a bowl, combine the paste with the sugar, soy sauce, fish sauce and oil.
Marinade the pork in this mixture for about 2 hours.
Pork and Beef Skewers
Thread 1 piece of pork or beef onto each bamboo skewer.
Gently grill the skewers, turning frequently to prevent charring and promote even caramelisation and cooking.
Delicious eaten warm or cold.
