• 2 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup chili garlic sauce, *
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 inches fresh ginger root, skins removed and chopped (or substitute 2 teaspoons of ground ginger)
  • 4 tablespoons filtered sake, or dry sherry (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil, *
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
In a large bowl combine the chili garlic sauce, soy sauce, ginger, sake, sesame oil and brown sugar and whisk to form a marinade. Add the cubed pork to the marinade and let sit for 20 minutes.

Heat an indoor grill pan or outdoor grill to medium-high heat.

Thread the marinated cubes of pork on skewers, about 4 to 5 pieces per skewer. Transfer the skewers to the grill and cook, uncovered, turning to brown evenly every 2 to 3 minutes until tender, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.

*You can find chili garlic sauce and sesame oil in the ethnic or Asian section of most major supermarkets.

Serves 4

Quick Tip: Make sure to leave plenty of room in between each skewer to avoid overcrowding the meat and assure even cooking.
Garnish with sliced scallions if desired. Serve alongside a bed of white rice.
