Oriental pork kebabs with miso corn

Method

  • Whisk the sesame oil, rice wine, kecap manis, Hoisin, honey, chilli paste, ginger, garlic and ground pepper with a slurp of oil in a large bowl.
  • Toss the pork in the marinade and set aside for up to 2 hours.
  • Heat the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan and add the miso. Gently cook until reduced, continually stirring.
  • Then add the onion and bacon. Stir until well coated and briefly cook.
  • Add the corn and mix until well combined, scraping the bottom of the pan as you do so. Then pour in the water, stir and cook until the corn is very tender, adding the spring onion at the end.
  • When ready, thread the pork onto skewers and cook on a preheated ridged grill or BBQ, basting with the marinade for the first few minutes.
  • To serve, mound the corn on a large plate (or individual plates) and top with the pork.
  • ps. The pork does not have to be cooked on skewers, if you prefer.
