Lemon Grass Pork Skewers


I have a big bunch of lemon grass growing perfectly in my back yard, besides just using it for curry and sambal prawn, I guess I could use it for something else. Like this lemon grass pork skewer, just something which came into my mind while I was looking at my lemon grass and wondering what else I could make.


The pork skewer is full of lemon grass aroma and delicious. I may use ground chicken or beef for the same recipe someday. I just used what ever seasoning I have and feel might be a good match with lemon grass - nothing complicated - just be creative and follow your taste buds.

1. 220g ground pork
2. 3~4 stalks lemon grass - pre-soaked for at least 1 hour, lightly crush the end of the stalk.

Marinate :
1. 1 tsp turmeric powder
2. 1 tsp curry powder
3. 1 tsp corn starch
4. 1 tsp oyster sauce
5. 1/8 tsp salt
6. 1.5 tsp soy sauce
7. 1/8 cup of finely chopped onion
8. 2 cloves of garlic - finely chopped
9. 1/8 cup chopped green onion
10. Some red chili flakes

1. Mix all the marinate ingredients and finely chop again with the ground pork until well combined.
2. Marinate for at least 1 hour or longer for better better taste.
3. Rub the marinated ground pork on the end of the lemon grass stalk.
4. Grill over the pre-heated grill at medium high heat for about 6~7 minutes for each side.


  1. Looks just so delicious! The aroma of lemongrass must be just wonderful and goes so well with the marinated meat. Maybe I should try this for Christmas party this yr...something different than the usual roast lamb!!

  2. hahaha...nyonya, like you said, smart people have the same thoughts :-p, I was thinking to make this for next pot luck party too!

  3. Wow!! You grow your own lemongrass ... Shame on me ... Probably because I'm living in a place where there're abundant of them around ... and thus, taking them for granted ...

    Found your blog somehow ... I couldn't even recall how ... Keep it up yea?


  4. Hi Pei Lin, welcome to my blog!

  5. Hi, I don't have any lemongrass stalks but do I have some frozen shredded lemongrass. Do you think it is still good if I just add it in?

  6. Hi Rubin, yes, but you may have to adjust the amount to be added so it will not over whelmed.
