Sate babi – Sweet pork satay


Inget sate babi di Senen atau yang di perniagaan….duh I miss the street vendors back home…


2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 inches galangal, grated
2 teaspoons coarsely ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons Thai fish sauce
2 tablespoons coconut cream
4 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
1 1/2 lb pork butt or tenderloin, cut into 3/4-inch cubes

In a bowl, stir together all ingredient to form a marinade. Add the pork and mix thoroughly to coat. Cover and let marinate for 2 hours at room temperature. Place 20 bamboo skewers, each 8 inches long, in enough water to cover for at least 30 minutes.

Prepare a fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas grill to medium-high heat. Thread 4 or 5 pieces of pork onto each skewer. The pieces should touch but do not press them together. Place the skewers on the grill rack and grill until grill marks are apparent on the underside, about 2 minutes. Turn the skewers over and continue grilling until the pork is browned on all sides and firm to the touch, about 1 minute longer. Use the leftover marinade for basting the satay while grilling.

Served the sweet pork satay with sweet soy sauce mix with lime juice and sprinkle with chopped peanuts (optional) or fried shallots..
