You really haven’t eaten till you’ve had Pho (phở) and a side plate of grilled pork. I just puts it over the top.
This is a super easy recipe but you need to marinade the pork the day before. It’s also cheap! Its pork!
The peeps who have the Egg or a wood style BBQ have a huge advantage over the lowly propane method amature backyard chefs. Like I have an opinion to criticize here! I live on a boat and have to pan fry everything. ?
I find cooking this in a cage or wood skewers vs. flipping one at a time is much easier.
Oh, I should mention I’m into a bottle of Chardonnay and got some Disturbed going on in the background. Guaranteed to have an ultimate BBQ experience today!
