A Good Grilling

Pork's not good for grilling or barbecuing as it dries out and turns tough in the time it takes to cook. I think it's best boiled or steamed first. Simmer some pieces of pork-on -the-bone (ribs, chops, bone-in -belly-pork) in a pan of boiling water for 8 - 10 minutes until cooked through. Drain well and dry with kitchen paper. Mix together some honey, soy sauce, chilli oil, chilli sauce and a splash of vinegar. Add the hot pork and leave to marinate for as long as you want. Grill (or barbecue) for a few minutes until dark and shiny.
I'm sorry there's no picture of the grilled pork - we'd eaten it all by the time I'd remembered to get my camera out.

could you not just boil it in the marinade and then grill?

Silvana said...

Yes, maybe you could. Need a lot of marinade though

Thanks Silvana, tried this last night and it was a resounding success - have never eaten pork so tender!

I am delighted to hear that NMoO you liked it and Nic and Clara you're going to try it. Shame it has to be cooked indoors though but none of us are going to be getting the barbecue out this weekend that's for sure :(
