Step 1: You will need...

  • 2 small pork fillets, tenderloins
  • 4 lemon grass stalks
  • the juice and zest of 2 limes
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 4 tbsp fish sauce
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 shallots
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • for the salad:
  • 6 radishes
  • 1 bunch of coriander
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 250 g shredded cabbage
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cutting board
  • 1 knife
  • 1 small bowl
  • 1 medium-sized bowl
  • 1 spoon
  • 1 blender
  • 1 set of tongs
  • 1 tray
  • 1 barbecue, charcoal or gas
  • 1 bottle of water to douse any flames

Step 2: Prepare the barbeque

If you have a charcoal barbeque light it 30-45 minutes before you plan to cook. It is ready when there are no more flames and the charcoal has turned white. If you are using a gas barbeque, light it up on high and leave it for 20-30 minutes to heat it.

Step 3: Make the marinade

Into the blender put the lemon grass, lime juice, zest, garlic, shallots, fish sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, and black pepper. Blend until it forms a smooth paste.

Step 4: Marinate the pork

Place the tenderloin in the bowl, pour over the marinade and let them marinate for at least one hour before grilling.

Step 5: Barbecue the pork

Place the pork on the barbecue. Leave it to cook for around 12 minutes. Roll the pork from one side to the other during cooking until it becomes nicely brown.

Step 6: Make the salad

In a bowl place the radishes, cabbage, coriander, lemon juice, soy and the olive oil. Gently mix them together.

Step 7: Slice the pork

There are many ways to slice the pork or meat in general. The basic rule is always to cut against, or across the grain. Cut the ends off and cut it into three pieces.

Step 8: Serve

Place the slices on the plate and top with a little of the salad on each one. These can also be served with some freshly cooked rice.
