Cheat of the Month: Pork Marinated in Whisky and Soy Sauce

Dear Delia, once, ran a TV series with an associated book called "Cheat". Not that I read the latter and possibly caught a few minutes of the series before dismissing it. What's the point of spending time reading a book to tell me how to save time. 
 
I thought it  all very silly, I couldn't understand the fuss. Aren't we all cook-cheats; I am not talking about producing a ready made meal and calling it our own; I am referring to shortcuts which make our lives easier by reducing the hard work. The idea is to pick fast but flagrant recipes and used already made prepared ingredients such as jars of chopped or crushed garlic, chillies and ginger.

This recipe should take no more than 30 minutes preparation and  cooking included. It needs marinating overnight but there is not need to oversee that part of the process!
 
Pork Marinated in Whisky and Soy Sauce
 
Ingredients
Marinade
pack 28g coriander - chopped and tailed -
1 tsp grinded black peppercorns
6 to 8 tsp of Very Lazy chopped garlic
2 tbsp. light soya sauce
3 tbsp. whisky (the cheap kind)
1/2 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. oil
 
350g pork steak sliced lengthways
 
Sauce
5 tsp Very Lazy chopped garlic
5 to 10 tsp Very Lazy crushed chillies
4 tbsp. lime juice
1 tbsp. light soy sauce or fish sauce ( if you prefer )
2 tbsp. sugar
 
Method
in a large dish stir all the marinade ingredients in, add the pork cover with film and leave in the fridge overnight
 
When you are ready to cook, remove the dish from the fridge and grill using the oven, an electric grill or in a frying pan without oil - turn often for the pork not to catch and start producing juices which will caramelise.
 
In the meantime prepare the dressing by mixing all the ingredients together, taste if it's too salted add a little water
 
Pour the dressing over the pork when serving.

Disclosure: English Provender provided me with  complimentary Very Lazy garlic and chillies for review purposes. No money exchanged hands and all opinions are my own.

This sounds absolutely yummy Solange and I would never have thought to put whisky in a marinade so must try this as I have a large bottle of the stuff I once won and need uses for as I'm not a drinker:-)

Hi Camilla,
That might take a few dishes :) as whisky has a very strong taste so to be use sparingly when cooking but it adds a wonderful kick which people love even if they don't like it as a drink
Thanks for dropping by.
