With autumn well on its way, my thoughts have turned to some of the more homely of my favourite recipes – including the ultimate comfort food, roast pork. I decided to spice up this delicious roast with Mekhala’s Lemongrass Turmeric Paste; lemongrass has often been used with pork in Thai cuisine, pairing well with the meat and cutting through its fattiness with a great citrus bite, so this seemed an ideal combination.
Mekhala’s range of easy-to-use sauces and dressings make for great store cupboard staples that bring the exotic flavours of Thailand into your cooking with the minimum of effort. I reckon a little of this beautifully aromatic paste goes a long way too… so you’ll definitely get your money’s worth out of a small HK$34 jar!
Ingredients 850 grams of pork belly, skin on Salt and vegetable oil for rubbing on skin
For the marinade 1 tablespoon of Mekhala Lemongrass Turmeric Paste 1 tablespoon of minced fresh garlic 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil 2 tablespoons of soya sauce (use GF soy-sauce or coconut aminos for a gluten-free version) 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
