Pork Marinade Saves the Meal

A week ago or so, I made a recipe for chili and lime pork noodles. The chili and lime dressing was less than stellar. But the pork marinade was tasty -- so tasty, in fact, that we pretty much just picked the pork out of the noodles. This recipe makes enough marinade for about 1 lb. of pork, thinly sliced. Marinate at least 20 minutes, but I let mine sit for a few hours. I might throw a little lime juice in there next time, too.

Asian pork marinade
  • 4 T. chopped shallots
  • 2 t. chopped garlic
  • 5 t. fish sauce
  • 5 t. soy sauce
  • 3 t. sugar
  • 5 T. sesame oil
  • Salt, to taste
Combine all ingredients. Add 1 lb. of thinly sliced pork; refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or overnight.

The food: Asian pork marinade
The verdict: Soy, soy good
