Home / Blog / #WhatsCookinWednesday Thai BBQ Pork Salad

Okay, so I know that I selected a salad for last week too, but really a Thai Pork this Whatscookinwednesday recipe was just too good to pass up!  I eat pork rather often because it’s so easy to prepare and I can make up a large batch in a slow cooker or other method and have a few dishes already prepared.  That’s important when classes start so early and end so late in the evening.

Now you may be thinking that this recipe will have a traditional flavor like Carnitas or Traditional BBQ, but nope… created this pork recipe with some Eastern influence with a Thai Style BBQ sauce.  I say delicious and I know you will too!

This recipe is so easy to make and still has layers and layers of flavor and you get a great texture in every bite with crisp lettuce, juicy pork and a creamy sauce.   Can you say cornucopia of goodness in every bite? The crunchy crackling on top acts as a crouton to complement all of the Asian flavors. You will love the cilantro and peanut butter works together to create a fresh flavor that really goes well with the crispy pork skins.
