Delicious Bangkok fare

Sa wàt dee kâ – Sa wàt dee kráp

Today I like to start posting some of the recipes which I enjoyed at the ATRIUM Hotel during our recent stay in Bangkok. This is a delicious BBQ often served in the evening by the Pool when the heat of the day has gone.

I find a cold Thai Beer is just the right ‘nectar’ to go with Executive Chef Kenneth Murphy’s Pork.

BBQ PORK

½ Pound Pork Tenderloin, shoulder or butt
2 cloves garlic, peeled and mashed
2 Tbsp Rice wine or dry Sherry
A few drops of red food colouring (optional)
2 Tbsp Tomato Ketchup
1 ½ Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 tsp brown sugar
Some liquid honey
½ – 1 tsp of five-spice powder

4-food
METHOD
Cut pork into strips approximately 2 inches wide and 5 inches long.

Peel garlic and mash it with a mortar and pestle or with a fork.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the rice wine or sherry, oyster sauce, ketchup, soy sauce, liquid honey, brown sugar, mashed garlic and five-spice powder. If using the red food coloring, add it now.

Place the pork in a shallow 9 X 13-inch glass baking dish. Pour the marinade over. Marinate the pork in the refrigerator, covered, for 3 hours. Remove the pork from the dish. Reserve the marinade.

Preheat the oven (425 degrees Fahrenheit for pork tenderloin, 350 degrees for shoulder or butt). Fill a shallow roasting pan with 1/2-inch of water and place in the bottom of the oven.
Place the pork on a rack above the water. Roast until golden brown, brushing 2 or 3 times with the reserved marinade (about 30 minutes total roasting time for the tenderloin, 45 minutes total roasting time for the shoulder or butt). The internal temperature of the pork should be 160 degrees F.

Remove, cool and enjoy.
