Camp Recipe: Yia Vang's Grilled Pork With Pepper Sauce


Grilled pork

Serves 6-8 

3 lbs pork shoulder, butterflied
1/4 C chopped garlic
1/4 C chopped ginger
1/4 C chopped cilantro ends/roots
1/4 C canola oil
3 tsp fish sauce
3 tsp oyster sauce
1 tsp salt

Mix all the ingredients together and spread onto the meat. Let sit refrigerated overnight to marinade.

Grill each side of the pork for about 4-5 minutes over a hot fire. Make sure there’s a nice char on it.

Pepper Sauce

3-4 Thai chilies
2 C chopped cilantro
3-4 cloves garlic
1/4 C fresh squeezed lime juice
2 tsp fish sauce
1 tsp salt

Put the thai chilies, fish sauce, garlic and salt in a mortar and pestle and pound to a paste. Add the rest of the ingredients and slowly mash it up.

NOTE: All this can be done in a food processor, instead. You’ll need to add a little oil to loosen up the ingredients.
