Pork Satay I

Ahhh.. yes.. turmeric turns everything yellow...

Ahhh.. yes.. turmeric turns everything yellow...

Total time:  Anywhere from 1 hour to 24 hours.

As a half-Thai, I get asked regularly if I know any Thai recipes. Truth of the matter is, until recently, I only had three or four under my belt. I spent hours pouring over my new copy of True Thai, by Victor Sodsook, trying to decide what, when, how.. why.. and then I gave up. I decided instead, to go with Martha Day.

1/2 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 T lemon juice
1 T soy sauce
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground turmeric
2 T vegetable oil

1 pound of pork loin or pork chops

Mash or blend all of the ingredients into a marinade for the pork. Slice the pork into strips or bite sized pieces and marinate 4-24 hours. Fry in a pan until golden brown.

Serve with Peanut Sauce and boxed pilaf.
