How to make it

  • In a large bowl, mix the soy sauce, cooking oil, sesame seeds, sugar, green onions, garlic and ginger.
  • Add the cubed pork, cover, place in a refrigerator for 4 hours.
  • When ready to grill, put on the rice.
  • Next, light the coals if you are charcoal grilling.
  • While the coals are beginning to whiten and the rice is cooking, thread the meat onto the skewers. (remember to soak wooden skewer for about 30 minutes prior to use, if those are your choice)
  • Pour the remaining marinate into a soup bowl or cup for basting.
  • Do not mix the meat and the peppers, but thread the pepper pieces on a separate skewer. Brush the peppers with the marinate.
  • When the coals are white, place the skewers on the grill. Brush the cut surface of the orange halves with marinate and place them face down on the grill too.
  • You can cover the pork, peppers and orange at this point and allow to cook for 8-10 minutes. But I prefer to leave them uncovered and baste them frequently in the sugary left over marinate. Peppers too.
  • When the bottom sides of the meat begins to brown, turn the skewers and rotate the orange halves. Baste each.
  • Cook until the meat is done. Remove the skewers from the grill and slide the meat off onto a large, flat pasta bowl. Do the same for the peppers. Remove the orange halves from the grill.
  • Serve meat and peppers with a side order of rice and an orange half.

    Joe has clarified the terms of how these dishes are named. According to a Japanese friend, Yaki means roasted or grilled. Tori is chicken. Ton is pork and beef is gyu.

    So, the original dish, made with sirloin would be Yakigyu? This version, made with pork would be Yakiton. With chicken, it would be Yakitori.

    Hi Joe. I knew Yakitori is chicken. Didn't know the word for pork. As I understand it, Yakatori is steak, or beef. Can you check it with your friend and let me know?

    This sounds really delicious, but Yakitori is chicken. Yakiton is pork. Just a little info that I happen to know through a Japanese friend.

    Love your avitar Keni. Happy Independence Day! Did you see the fireworks display over the Capital on public TV this evening? Fantastic!

    I know you are going to love this one. I was too busy bouncing in and out the back door to take any photos. So if you happen to do a visual... well, you know the drill :^)

    BTW, if you are cutting back on the soy sauce, you might want to add Tb of champagne vinegar to help soften the meat.
