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.
