For 1Kg of meat
THE SHOPPING LIST
4 Lemongrass stem, white part only, smashed and roughly chopped (80g)
1 Large brown onion, roughly chopped
5 Cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon of ground chilli paste (or 2 fresh chillies minced)
½ tablespoon of fish sauce
½ tablespoon of Soy sauce
1 tablespoon of Oyster sauce
1 tablespoon of Sugar
1/2 tablespoon of Honey
1 teaspoon Ground black pepper
1 teaspoon Sesame oil
THIS IS HOW WE DO IT
As this is a marinade you want the end result to be more liquid and not like a paste, so I find this works better in a food processor, but if you’re a purist feel free to do it in a mortar and pestle.
Place the lemongrass in the food processor and wiz to it become quite fine and no large chunks are left.
Now add the Onion, Garlic. Give it a few pulses and then wiz it to all the ingredients become a thick paste and are all incorporated.
Now add the rest of the ingredients and wiz to all the ingredients are well combined and the pastes starts to becomes a thick liquid.
Now its ready to marinate your favourite cut of pork with.
YOUR DONE HOW EASY WAS THAT!!
I find that for best results marinate your pork for at least 4 hours but overnight is best.
