Indonesian Pork

"I'm not sure where I found this recipe, but it sounded so weird to me at the time, I just had to try it. I do alot of outdoor cooking on the grill. I'm lucky enough to have a Big Green Egg out on my deck to cook on. It is a ceramic barbecue with a fire brick interior and uses charcoal. You can use a gas grill, too... just be sure to try this recipe. You will be pleasantly surprise"

Ready In:
3hrs 15mins




  • What I do is take a 2-3 pound piece of boneless pork loin and cut it into"chops" and then cut the chops in half and then pound each half until thin.
  • Combine the marinade ingredients and pour over pork.
  • Thoroughly coat all pieces of meat.
  • (I put everything in a Ziploc plastic bag).
  • Marinate for several hours.
  • When ready to cook, thread pork onto skewers (I kind of"sew" the meat back and forth onto the skewers) and cook on heated grill over moderate heat for 12-14 minutes, turning once.
  • It doesn't take long for the pork to cook because it has been pounded thin, so be sure not to overcook it or it will be dry.

    A nice change to the same old pork loin but not particularly flavorful. I'm not saying it has no flavor, I'm just saying the flavor is not very intense. Everyone liked it and ate it, but there were no raves about it. I might cook it again.

    Loved this pork recipe. I marinated for four hours and then cooked it on our new Kamado Joe. Served it with Recipe #61614. Great meal.

    Made for 2008 All New Zaar Cookbooks tag. I had originally intended to cook this on the grill, but Mother Nature changed my plans so I cut the meat into small chunks and sauted it until browned in a skillet coated with spray oil. I then mixed the marinade ingredients together and poured them over the cooked meat in the skillet and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. The flavor was excellent. Can't wait for the weather to change so I can try this on the grill as the recipe is written. Thank you!

    This was great!!! Served at a tapas party and they were a hit! Brought the few leftovers to work and there weren't any left! Thanks!

    I'm used to make chicken satay instead of pork satay. That is one of my favourite food. I use indonesian sweet soy sauce which you subtituted with brown sugar and soy sauce here. For dips, I use peanut sauce and sometimes I mix with roasted cashew nuts.


Hmm... let's see.. Cooking is my passion... I'm retired now and able to cook and bake every day. I think the most helpful cookbook that I own would have to be The New Doubleday Cookbook. I just love kitchen gadgets and have many of them. Besides cooking I love to sing and belong to the Sweet Adeline's International. I get very annoyed at people who are LATE! I think it's just as easy to be late as it is to be on time. Well.. thanks to all of you at Zaar for all of your terrific recipes and ideas that bring my friends and family much joy and happiness. They get to try all of my new recipes.
