Spicy Pork Satay

Monday, October 29, 2007

Last Friday, October 26 '2007 Christian prepared this meal for my birthday. Well, I told him that he doesn't have to do it for me, since we have already gone for late lunch at a restaurant with friends on my birthday last Sunday. However, he insisted to make it for me and to invite good friends to come over for dinner Saturday evening. This is one of his favorite recipes which he got from his aunt - Ida. As for him, spicy means really really hot...so I know what to expect..

- 1kg pork meat (shoulder part), cut into small cubes
- 8 pcs lemongrass
- 4cm of galangal
- 4cm of ginger
- 10 cloves of garlic
- 10 cloves of small red onion
- 8 pcs lime leaves
- bunch of basil leaves
- chili paddy=bird's eye chili=cabe rawit-Indonesian (as many as you like)
- 1 lime
- 3 Tbsp vegetable oil

Put all the ingredients except lime, vegetable oil and the meat into a blender and blend it until smooth. In a big bowl, put the meat and mix it with the smooth blended spices and add lime and vegetable oil. Mix it well and then keep it in fridge for 24hours.

On the next day, take the bowl out of the fridge and place the meat on the skewers (4 cubes each). Broil until well cooked.

Note: 1kg of meat is good to make approx. 40 skewers. The spicier it is the better! (Christian's philosophy). It clears out your nose...
Good thing that we have smokeless broiler at home, so we are able to grill it inside when the outside temperature is not friendly.
