Pork Satay with Pineapple Recipe – Sauce Sate Babi Recipe

Skewers of seasoned meat or chicken grilled over charcoal is one of Singapore’s most popular dishes. This local Chinese version is made with pork and served with a rich peanut sauce flavoured with crushed pineapple.

Ingredients :

  • 500 g (1 lb) pork fillet, cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 18 bamboo skewers
  • 1 portion Pineapple Satay Sauce

Marinade

  • 11/2 tablespoons coriander seeds, or 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 cm (1/2 in) fresh turmeric root, peeled and sliced, or 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, thick bottom part only, outer layers removed, inner part sliced
  • 4 tablespoons oil

Method :

  1. Prepare the Pineapple Satay Sauce.
  2. To make the Marinade, grind all the ingredients in a mortar or blender, adding the oil to keep the blades turning. Rub the Marinade into the pork cubes and set aside to marinate for 2 hours. In the meantime, soak the skewers in cold water to prevent them from burning during grilling.
  3. Thread 3 pork cubes onto each bamboo skewer until all the meat and skewers are used up. Then brush with a little oil and cook over hot charcoal or under a broiler, turning from time to time and brushing with more oil, until the meat is browned evenly on the outside and well cooked on the inside, about 5 to 7 minutes. Serve with a bowl of the Pineapple Satay Sauce and, if desired, chunks of fresh pineapple, cucumber and raw onions or shallots on the side.
