Pork skewers with lemon grass & Sriracha #97

Ground pork meat is not something I use that often but with Asian flavors and a little bit of heat it´s great, it´s also a great way to serve something really tasty when you´re on a budget since ground pork is usually really inexpensive.

I shaped the meat around lemongrass but I also put some finely chopped lemongrass in the meat so you can replace the lemongrass with wooden skewers, but don´t forget to soak them in water before you use them, this will keep them from splitting and catch fire when on the grill.

Pork skewers with lemon grass & Sriracha

ground pork meat
mixed fresh herbs for example, cilantro, parsley, chives
red chili flakes
lemon grass
lime juice
salt, pepper
Sriracha sauce, or your own favorite (for serving)

Finely dice the thick part of the lemon grass with the herbs and garlic. (Only use the thick end of lemongrass when it will be chewed because the closer you get to the top the chewier and woodier it will be.) Combine with the ground pork, salt, pepper, chili and a few drops of lime juice. Fry a piece of the meat and taste before you start making the skewers, adjust the taste if necessary.

Shape the meat and put them on the skewers. Grill the skewers on medium heat until they are cooked through. Serve with some Sriracha sauce or your favorite hot sauce.


  1. Wow this sounds so fantastic! I have some lemongrass growing in my garden this year so I can't wait to try this. Love the idea of using lemongrass as a skewer!

  2. It´s a fun little idea (that I may have stolen) so go ahead!
