grilled pork tenderloin served with spicy dipping sauce and black sticky rice

Grilled Pork Tenderloin served with Spicy Dipping Sauce and Black Sticky Rice : หมูย่างน้ำจิ้มแจ่วเสิร์ฟกับข้าวเหนียวดำ 

I love eating "Isaan" food. I think it has something to do with the standout bold flavours that Isaan food has to offer. (I love everything salty & tangy.) Therefore, Isaan food fits my taste buds perfectly.

This recipe is modified a little from the original recipe of "Grilled Pork Shoulder" (คอหมูย่าง). I find pork shoulder too fatty. So, I change it to pork tenderloin or pork chop instead. I choose the part that's as soft and tender but less fat. Feel free to choose any part of pork that you prefer.

Find my recipe below

Half Kilo (500 g.) of Pork Meat (Any part that you prefer.)

2-3 Organic Coriander Roots, roughly cut
2-3 Cloves of Organic Garlic, roughly cut
5-6 Pepper Corns
3 Tablespoons of Premium Fish Sauce (If you don't like Fish Sauce, 1 teaspoon of Sea Salt will do.)
2 Tablespoons of Oyster Sauce
1 Teaspoon of Palm Sugar 

Spicy (Dried) Chili Dipping Sauce
2-3 Tablespoons of Premium Fish Sauce
2 Tablespoons of Organic Lime Juice 
1 Tablespoon of Ground Roasted Rice 
1 Teaspoon of Chili Flakes 
2 Medium Shallot, sliced 
Organic Long Leaves Thai Pasley, finely chopped
Organic Coriander Leaves & Spring Onion, finely chopped 
Add all ingredients into an empty (Jam) Jar, put the lid on. Shake to mix well. Transfer into a small serving cup.  

Fresh Cucumber
Fresh Coriander Leaves
Fresh Basil Leaves
Fresh Thai Parsley Long Leaves


Pound all ingredients together by using stone mortar and pestle. Add dried bits first, pound them till fine and later add the liquid ingredients, pound lightly to mix everything well. (If you want to save time, add everything in a food processor and press a button, there you have it.) Rub the pork with marinade mixture and keep in the fridge for at least 2 hours or over night.

Grill the marinated pork till cooked through. Cut into bite-sized pieces and serve with a cup of spicy chili dipping sauce, fresh green salad or fresh vegetables and black sticky rice. How easy peasy is this recipe... : )

Serve : 2-3
