Instead of grinding it into burgers, we decided to do something radical and cook the meat whole. We marinated the meat for twenty four hours before grilling, and it really came through.
RECIPE: Grilled Country Pork
Makes 3 Servings
1/4 Soy Sauce
Bone in Pork steak
Hot Pepper Flakes
1) Mix together the oil, soy sauce, a sprinkle of thyme, a spoonful of brown sugar, a heavy dash of paprika, a heavy pinch of garlic powder, freshly grated nutmeg, and a touch of onion powder.
2) Pour mixture of the bone in pork steak and let soak in a pan over night.
3) Cut zucchini into bite size pieces and a handful of cherry tomatoes in half. Wrap in foil with a sprinkle of hot pepper flakes.
4) On a hot grill, place foil packet on top shelf and pork directly onto the heat.
5) Flip meat after 4 minutes, and cook until the internal temperature reaches safe levels. For pork, I prefer between 165 and 170 just to be on the super safe side.
6) Pour leftover marinade into a hot sauce pot. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes to kill off any potential bacteria from the raw pork. Serve over the vegetables.
It may not be the prettiest photograph, but it was a damn good dinner. My fiance said my marinade was one of the best we’ve done. The extra marinade cooked and served over the vegetables really made this dinner worthy of licking the plate clean.
