    Gunnar's Note:

    This is a great Thai dish, that isn't too spicy. It goes great with sticky rice. Originally it called for meat sliced thinly at 1.5" x 3" and placed on thin skewers like a ribbon. But I just use pork steaks with the bone cut out, and then cut into quarters.

    Pork and Marinade Ingredients

    • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped (sometimes I use a whole head)
    • 10 -12 sprigs cilantro, finely chopped
    • 4 tablespoons fish sauce (get this at any asian food store, one brand I use is Tiparos)
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 4 ounces thick coconut cream (1/2 cup, fresh tastes best, then canned, but I usually use powdered for convience. Prepare according)
    • 4 ounces cooking oil (1/2 cup)
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper (yes, in a pinch you can use black, but the white has a better flavor)
    • 1 lb thinly sliced pork or 2 pork steaks, cut into quarters (8 pieces total)

    Dipping Sauce


    1. 1
      Pork& Marinade:Combine everything (but the pork) untill it's all blended together well.
    2. 2
      Add the pork and let sit for at least 30 minutes.
    3. 3
      I like to let it sit in the fridge overnight.
    4. 4
      Some people like to use dishes or bowls to marinade the meat, but I like to use large zipper seal bags.
    5. 5
      While the meat is soaking we can get going on the dipping sauce: Mix everything together and taste.
    6. 6
      If it's too spicy-hot, just add a little more sugar, fish sauce, and lime juice till the flavor is right.
    7. 7
      When it's time to cook the meat, start your grill (I prefer charcoal).
    8. 8
      Skewer the meat if thats what you are doing, and place the items on the grill.
    9. 9
      Cook both sides evenly for a couple of minutes and make sure it's cooked all the way through.
    10. 10
      When eating, dip the meat into the sauce and enjoy.

      This was EXACTLY what I was looking for. We loved it. I didn't measure out the ingredients exactly, and I didn't have any fish sauce so used a bit more soy sauce and a little black bean sauce. The dipping sauce was an awesome little extra.

      Excellent recipe! I used boneless pork chops in mine and cut them into kebab-like chunks. You're right, it isn't spicy at all, but the faint flavor of coconut on the grilled meat made my mouth water. The dipping sauce was good- not too tart. Tasted a lot like nuoc cham. Thanks for posting!
