I think meat taste better when its on a stick, don’t ask me why I just do. Especially if its getting grilled over a BBQ. In todays post I’m going to show you how to make a super simple Japanese yakitori. This recipe is so simple that it only has 4 ingredients. That’s if you don’t include the beer that accompanies it haha.
THE SHOPPING LIST
750G. Pork Belly
100mls. Soy Sauce
2.5 tbsp. Sugar
Told you there was only 4 ingredients
LET’S GET A COOKING YES? LET’S
Step 1. Add the soy sauce, mirin, and sugar into a large bowl and mix well to all the sugar has dissolved.
Step 2. Remove the skin from the pork belly and dice into 1 inched cubes
Step 3. Add the diced pork belly to the bowl then mix well. Leave to marinate in the refrigerator for an hour.
Step 4. Time to skewer these bad boys.
note. if using wooden skeweres ensure you soak them first for at least half an hour
When skewering try to keep the shape and size as even as possible. This will ensure even cooking later on.
Step 5. Take the left over marinate and pour into a sauce pan. Place onto a medium heat and let reduce to a thick sauce. This should take about 10 minutes.
Now the best bit. Time to cook these bad boys and enjoy the aroma. I highly recommend you cook these over a charcoal BBQ but if you don’t have one you can do this on a grill pan or in the oven.
Step 6. Place the skewers onto the BBQ. A medium heat is ideal and turn frequently to stop the sugar in the marinate from burning.
If there are any left over marinate juices glaze them over the skewers whilst they are cooking.
Once your skewers are cooked right through remove them from the heat allow them to rest for a few minutes before serving.
To serve them place them on a plate and drizzle over with the reduced sauce, crack a beer and enjoy!
