       Ingredients How to?

  •  1 tablespoon fish sauce
  •  3 cloves garlic

    Tips and Techniques: Try the same marinade with pork chops!

    Sauce for Grilled Pork (Nam Jim Moo Ping)
  •  3 tablespoons brown sugar
  •  2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  •  1 tablespoon fish sauce
  •  1 teaspoon ground fresh chili paste
  •  1 teaspoon tamarind
  •  4 tablespoons water
  • Soak the bamboo skewer in water at least 1/2 hour (while you marinate the pork), to prevent them from burning while on the grill.
  • Slice the pork into thin long strips, a quarter of an inch thick. If you are planning on using the skewer, inch wide strips are better. If you are grilling the pork on the grill without the skewers, a bigger piece will help it from falling into the coals.
  • Press or mince the garlic. Mix all ingredients together and marinate for half an hour or even over night.
  •  If you are using the skewers, thread a skewer through the pork. Grill the pork until it is well done.

    Tips and Techniques: Be careful about microwaving sugary mixtures too long because the sugar gets extremely hot and can crack a bowl due to thermal expansion of the area where the sugar is. Put all ingredients together in a small bowl and microwave it until the sugar is dissolved. Stir to prevent the sugar from crystallizing on the bottom. It should take about a minute or so depending on your microwave.

    Heat up water, brown sugar, fish sauce, cilantro, tamarind and ground fresh chili paste in a small bowl in the microwave for 2 minutes, depending on the power of your microwave. Stir and make sure all the ingredients are dissolved. The sauce will thicken as it cools down. Add chopped cilantro. Ready to serve with grilled pork.
