Thai Marinated Pork with Dipping Sauce

Thai Marinated Pork with Dipping Sauce created by PalatablePastime

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.

ingredients

  • 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
  • 12 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 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 limes, juice of (or use 2 tbs rice wine vinigar)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro leaves, coarsely cut

directions

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

    So delish! I left it the coconut cream because I don't like coconut and it was so good! I just used thinly sliced boneless chops and marinated them. I made the sauce and garnished with cilantro and green onion.

    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!
