A recipe from Cuisine At Home, Cuisine for Two special publication. This is a very simple recipe with outstanding presentation because of the way the lemongrass is used as a skewer.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together the hoisin sauce, ginger, garlic, sake, honey and chili garlic sauce in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Trim the pork tenderloin of any connective tissue and slice it lengthwise into 6 strips.
  3. Remove the dry outer leaves of the lemongrass stalk and trim into 6-8" lengths.
  4. Thread pork strips onto lemongrass stalks, accordion-style. Using the tip of a sharp knife to make small cuts will make this task easier. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Sear in a grill pan or on a grill over high heat until browned, about 4 minutes. Turn skewers over and baste with hoisin mixture and cook 2 minutes more. Turn and baste again. Continue to grill until pork is cooked through and sauce is slightly carmelized.
  6. Garnish with sesame seeds.
