Beef and Pork Skewers



  • 550g beef mince
  • 250g pork mince
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed and finely chopped
  • 5 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped lemon grass
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped palm sugar
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • Combine all the ingredients except coriander leaves in a large bowl, mix really well and then cover and refrigerate for an hour or more to allow the flavours to develop.
    Soak 12 bamboo skewers in a glass of water.
  • With wet hands divide the mince into 12 portions and roll each into a sausage shape. Slide a skewer into each.
  • Heat a griddle, large frying pan or barbecue, spray with a film of oil and cook the skewers until well coloured and cooked through.
    Serve with coriander,  roti bread, salad and sweet chilli sauce.
