Grilled Skewered Pork Recipe

(Bun Cha)

Ingredients : Serves 4 - 6

1 tablespoon

1 tablespoon

1 tablespoon

3 cloves


2 teaspoons

1/2 teaspoon

1/2 teaspoon

450 g (1 lb)



Hoisin sauce

Fish sauce

Garlic, peeled and minced

Spring onions (scallions), chopped

Oyster sauce


Freshly ground black pepper

Streaky pork, thinly sliced

Bamboo skewers

Method :
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the honey, hoisin sauce, fish sauce, garlic, spring onions, oyster sauce, salt and pepper, mixing well.

  • Add the pork, coating the slices well. Cover and marinate for 1 hour.

  • Meanwhile, start the barbecue fire. Soak the bamboo skewers.

  • When ready to eat, thread the meat strips on the skewers.

  • Don't be tempted to overload the skewers; skewers which are too generous will char on the outside by the time the inside is cooked.

  • Grill over medium-hot coals for 3 to 4 minutes, brushing the meat with the marinate.

  • When browned and cooked, remove from the fire and serve.
