BBQ pork neck – this is a Thai dish but it is really popular in Cantonese restaurants too. There is a lot of Thai influence in Cantonese cuisine. However, the most important thing is that this taste amazing and it is super easy to make.

This dish can’t be done without pork neck. At least in my language, it is called pork neck. As I research more, It is also called pork jowl or pork cheek. It is a thin piece of meat that’s on the side of the pig cheek. Each pig has 2 of this meat. This cut is popular in Cantonese, Thai even Vietnamese cuisine. The special part about this meat is that it contains more fat in it and the fat is evenly distributed between each fiber which makes it has totally different texture than any other cut of the pork. If you have never heard of this, must ask the butcher to cut it for you. You have to try it. It is so good!

– 1 piece of pork neck [about half a pound] [猪颈肉]
– 1 tbsp of palm sugar [棕榈糖]
– 1 tbsp of oyster sauce [蚝油]
– 1 tbsp of fish sauce [鱼露]

– 1/2 tsp of black pepper [黑胡椒]
– 1/4 tsp of cumin seeds [孜然]
– 1 piece of cilantro [香菜]
– 1 tbsp of lime juice [青柠汁]
– 1 tbsp of shallot [红葱头]
– 1.5 tbsp of fish sauce [鱼露]
– 2 tsp of honey [蜂蜜]
– 1 tsp of dried chili powder [辣椒粉]

– What we are going to do is use a fork to poke holes. This helps the marinade. After you done with poking, you can make the seasoning. It is really simple – only requires 3 ingredients (1 tbsp of palm sugar, 1 tbsp of fish sauce, 1 tbsp of oyster sauce).

– Marinate the meat for at least 1 hour. It is better to do it overnight.

– Put your meat on the grill, bake one side for 3- 5 minutes. Flip it over and bake the other side for 3-5 minutes. Keep flipping it over and baking it for 3-5 times.

– cut the meat into thin slices. Serve it with dipping sauce.
