Thai-Style Grilled Pork Skewers (Moo Ping) Recipe

Why It Works

  • Thinly slicing pork shoulder allows the meat to pick up flavor from the punchy marinade, and also speeds up cooking time.
  • A special skewer set-up for a charcoal grill makes it easier to cook the skewers, producing lightly charred pork that is still juicy and tender.
  • Brushing the skewers with unsweetened coconut cream while they cook keeps them moist, and creates a sticky glaze on the surface of the meat.

While most people in the United States are most familiar with satay-style Thai skewers, these grilled pork skewers, called moo ping, are a popular street food in Thailand. Thin slices of fatty pork butt are tossed in a punchy, savory marinade, bunched tightly onto skewers, and cooked over charcoal. The pork is brushed with unsweetened coconut cream as it cooks, which keeps the meat moist and provides creamy richness to balance the fish sauce punch of the marinade. This recipe calls for a specially-designed grill set-up that mimics the grilling rigs you would find at street-food kiosks.

Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork

I’m fairly certain, being made in a slow-cooker, that this is not authentic Thai cuisine. But this Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork is so good, I just can’t bring myself to care.

I’m sure you could prepare it more traditionally, without the slow-cooker, but I love the ease and convenience of throwing it in the Crock Pot and not having to fuss over it too much.

Thanks for this recipe. I made it tonight, and my hubby and I really liked it. Plus, there are a ton of leftovers, which is great.

My family doesn’t think it’s too spicy, but you can always start with one teaspoon of chili sauce (found in the Asian section of most grocery stores) if you’re worried.

You can also use red pepper flakes as a substitution. You can also switch up the vegetables to suit your tastes. A squeeze of lime is a must though! And so are the chopped peanuts!

I will say that my husband is not a peanut butter fan, so this isn’t his favorite dish, but I love it! And my pickiest eater always goes back for seconds.

I usually sneak an entire meal’s worth from the pot before we even sit down to dinner. I like to serve this pork over Basmati rice, but it’s great with rice noodles too.

Tips to make these pork meatballs

Making the meatballs is easy. All you do is mix the ground pork/pork mince with the chopped Thai basil. lime zest, onion. Season, then mix it all up.

As with most meatballs, often the best way to get them properly mixed is to just get in there with your hands. That way, you get all the additions well distributed.

I then used my tablespoon measure to scoop out nice evenly-sized amounts to roll and then cook. They don't take long, just a few minutes each side to brown.

Thai-Style Pork with Peanut Sauce, 'Phraram Long Song'

This dish can be made with pork, beef, chicken or shrimp. This version is made with pork.



  • 1 Cup Pork, cut into small bite sized pieces
  • 1 Cup Cabbage, Shredded
  • To Flavor the Oil: Garlic, Ginger, Thai Chile peppers, and curry powder.

Ingredients For Sauce

  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic, Very Finely Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Massaman Curry Paste
  • 1 Cup Coconut Milk
  • 1 Cup Pork Stock
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 1/2 Cup Raw Peanuts, Crushed

Method for Thai-Style Pork with Peanut Sauce, 'Phraram Long Song'

Heat a wok and add three tablespoons of peanut oil. Add one teaspoon of slivered garlic, and sautee until the garlic is just changing color. Remove and discard the garlic. Add 4 'coins' of ginger, 1" in diameter, and an eigth of an inch thick, and sautee for 1 minute. Remove and discard. Take 4 chilis and destalk them, cut them in half and tap them on the counter to remove loose seeds (not necessary to remove all of the seeds, but get rid of what easily falls out). Sautee for 1 minute. Remove and discard. Now add one teaspoon of curry powder and stir until absorbed into the flavored oil.

For the provincial version, to the hot oil add 1 tablespoon of slivered garlic, one tablespoon of slivered ginger, and 1 tablespoon of very thinly sliced chilis, including the seeds, then remove the flavorants. Add 1 tablespoon of curry powder and blend into the oil. The garlic, ginger and chili is then blended to a fine paste and retained to be added later.

Now stir fry the meat for about 1 minute, and remove it from the oil while you prepare the sauce.

Fry the peanuts for about 5 minutes in the oil, then remove them and blend them to a fine paste, and return the paste to the oil, adding the curry paste and stirring until aromatic. Now slowly add the coconut milk, stirring constantly to blend, and then add the remaining sauce ingredients. Bring to a gentle simmer.

If preparing the provincial version, return the oil flavorants to the mix at this time.

Add the meat, and return to the simmer, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes, until the meat is tender.

Add the vegetables, turn the heat up and boil vigorously for 1 minute.

Note: We cook this to check the recipe in a 16" wok that is 6" deep. If your wok is smaller or shallower you may not wish to have this much sauce in a wok and of course you can complete the recipe in a medium saucepan.

This was pretty tasty. I didnt have ground pork, but pork cutlets and just chopped that into chunks. I also ran out of sesame oil so substituted seeds, and used ground ginger instead of fresh.

With the actual ingredients, i think this would have been better. I expected it to be spicy, but the amount called dudnt do anything for me, which suited in the long run because i made this for my son whos almost 2. He devoured it, so I’m gonna say this was a success.
