Grilled Spicy Pork & Onion ( Num Tok Mu Yang )


This is perfect Thai farmer picnic food. Traditionally you keep the rice in a ga-tip and take a parcel of this grilled pork with you into the field. At lunch time you wash your hands (!), take a small ball of sticky rice in your fingertips and some of the meat and onions and eat. Perhaps with some cucumber and lettuce to add some extra green vegetables.
