  1. For the sauce: Whisk the granulated sugar, vinegar, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic, and red pepper flakes together in a bowl; set aside for serving.
  2. For the pork: Combine the Melt(R), fish sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and pepper in a bowl. Combine the marinade and pork in a large zipper-lock bag. Seal the bag tightly, toss to coat the pork, and let the pork marinate in the refrigerator for up to 1 hour.
  3. Weave 2 pieces of pork onto each skewer.
  4. For a Charcoal grill: Open the bottom grill vents completely. Light a large chimney starter filled with charcoal briquettes (100 briquettes; 6 quarts). When the coals are hot, pour them in an even layer over the grill. Set the cooking grate in place, cover, and heat the grill until hot, about 5 minutes.
  5. For a gas grill: Turn all the burners to high, cover, and heat the grill until hot, about 15 minutes. (Adjust the burners as needed to maintain a hot fire.)
  6. Clean and oil the cooking grate. Place skewers on the grill and cook until the meat is cooked through and lightly charred around the edges, 7 to 10 minutes, flipping the skewers halfway through.
  7. Transfer the skewers to a platter and let rest for 5 minutes. Remove the meat from the skewers, sprinkle the cilantro leaves over the top, and serve, passing the sauce separately.


  • Freezing the meat for 30 minutes makes it easier to slice.
  • Serve with steamed white rice.

My husband made this for dinner tonight and it was PHENOMENAL. I think it's the best pork I've ever eaten. I think the servings are off though, as we only had 3 servings (each serving about 3 ch...

YUM! I did not have all the right ingredients, but I made this anyway with some substitutions: butter-flavored olive oil for the submitter's butter Melt; half soy sauce half oyster sauce for t...

The sauce in particular was very good. I just sauteed the pork in a pan because I don't have a grill, but it still turned out very well.

My family raved about this meal. The sauce is one of the best I've had. I used olive oil in the marinade but that is the only change I made.

The marinade for the pork was delicious. I don't have a grill so I stir fried the pork after marinating it and a 2 lb tenderloin was gone by the end of the night.

This was sooo good. I marinated veggies with it and they just completed the meal!

this was very tasty.. i used it for the marinade on 2 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken thighs.. can't wait for pork to go on sale again and try the recipe in it's full entirety.. i did leave ou...
