BBQ Pork and Rice with Sweet and Sour Sauce (Bai Sach Chrouk)

BBQ Pork and Rice with Sweet and Sour Sauce (Bai Sach Chrouk)

This is one of Cambodian and Vietnam famous street food serve with a bowl of clear soup, fresh cucumber and broken rice on the side. There is different type of this recipe depending on where you eat and the flavor is never the same. I know that most place sell marinated bbq pork on charcoal grill and the flavor is wonderful. In my picture I bake the meat not look that good (Seattle is too cold to BBQ at this time of year (don’t bake). Make sure you make clear broth to go with this recipe, in Cambodia they use chicken or pork broth add a some green onion to it. (Pho broth is also use for this recipe)

1 lb of Pork butt, shoulder or pork belly (you need 25% fat for this recipe) many Cambodian use pork belly. Do slice the meat into long strip. Lean meat will not taste good.

Marinate 1
2 T of minced garlic
2 T of minced shallots
2 T of soy sauce or fish sauce
1 T of oyster sauce
2 T of honey or brown sugar
1/4 t black pepper
2 T of olive oil to keep the meat moist
1 T of Chinese BBQ Pork seasoning for red color

Marinate 2
Most street in Cambodia do it with coconut milk
1/3 cup of coconut milk ( just like add oil to make the meat moist)
2 to 3 T of soy sauce or fish sauce
2 T of honey or sugar
1 T of Chinese BBQ pork seasoning

Mix and marinate the meat for few hours or over night
Grill the meat on charcoal or gas grill over medium heat until done

Green onion in oil (this part is optional you can use fresh green onion to sprinkle on the top of rice or grill pork when ready to serve)
1/2 cup chopped green onions, olive oil to fry the green onion
Heat about ¼ cup of oil until hot add green onion cook in hot oil for few minutes turn the heat off and let it cool.

 Chili sauce
1 T of minced shallot
 2 T fish sauce
 lime juice as much as you like
1 Thai Chili minced
1 t if sugar more or less up to you
