Thai Barbecue Pork on Bamboo Skewers

This Thai Barbecue Pork recipe serves as a fantastic Thai nibble for a home party. It is quick and easy to make, (a key for cooking home party meals and snacks).

Succulent BBQ pork on skewers, known as "Moo Yang", is great when served with white steamed sticky rice called "Khao Niew". It is one of the Thai street food favorites commonly enjoyed as a breakfast or lunch meal.

The BBQ pork skewers are traditionally cooked over a charcoal grill. It can also be cooked over hot plate or gas barbecue.

Simply slice pork fillet into long strips, then marinate in soy sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar, and sesame oil for at least 1 hour. Place the pork stripes onto pre soaked bamboo skewers and then onto the grill until well done.

For more complex flavors, I love serving this bbq pork with sticky rice and Nam Jim Jaew, North Eastern style sauce made of galangal, dried red Thai chili powder and ground dry fried rice grain.

Alternatively, you can barbecue a large cut of boneless pork shoulder or fillet, simply use the same marinate ingredients. Then slice the meat and serve it as a main dish for dinner with your favorite salad.

Barbecue pork on bamboo skewers can be enjoyed as an appetizer or serve them together with steamed rice/fried rice and/or Stir Fried Asparagus with Prawns

Bon appetite!
