Pork on Lemongrass Skewers


If you’re looking for a mid-week treat that smacks of outdoor eating, then this recipe is for you! It really is very simple and healthly as well. Use extra lean pork mince, the mixture sticks pretty well to the lemongrass so you won’t need any excess fat to bind the mince.

Serve with a sweet chilli dipping sauce or make the cucumber and chili dipping sauce from our Thai Cookery class
