Thai-Style Grilled Pork
Serves: 6
 
Freezing the meat for 30 minutes makes it easier to slice. Serve with steamed white rice
Ingredients
  • Sauce
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Pork
  • 2 tablespoons Rich & Creamy Melt®
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 (1-pound) pork tenderloins, trimmed all visible fat, and cut into 3 by ¼-inch strips
  • ½ cup lightly packed fresh cilantro
Instructions
  1. For the sauce: Whisk the granulated sugar, vinegar, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl; set aside for serving.
  2. For the pork: Combine the Melt®, fish sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and pepper in a bowl. Combine the marinade and pork in a large zipper-lock bag. Seal the bag tightly, toss to coat the pork, and let the pork marinate in the refrigerator for up to 1 hour.
  3. Weave 2 pieces of pork onto each skewer.
  4. a. For a Charcoal grill: Open the bottom grill vents completely. Light a large chimney starter filled with charcoal briquettes (100 briquettes; 6 quarts). When the coals are hot, pour them in an even layer over the grill. Set the cooking grate in place, cover, and heat the grill until hot, about 5 minutes.
  5. b. For a gas grill: Turn all the burners to high, cover, and heat the grill until hot, about 15 minutes. (Adjust the burners as needed to maintain a hot fire.)
  6. Clean and oil the cooking grate. Place skewers on the grill and cook until the meat is cooked through and lightly charred around the edges, 7 to 10 minutes, flipping the skewers halfway through.
  7. Transfer the skewers to a platter and let rest for 5 minutes. Remove the meat from the skewers, sprinkle the cilantro leaves over the top, and serve, passing the sauce separately.
