Spicy Pork Skewers

  • 2 Pounds skinless, boneless pork shoulder
  • ½ Small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 12 Red Thai chiles, coarsely chopped
  • 8 Garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 1 Cup Sprite or 7UP
  • ½ Cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ Cup cane vinegar or unseasoned rice vinegar
  • ¼ Cup sugar
  • 1 TBSP black peppercorns
  • 1 TBSP kosher salt, plus more
  • 6 Dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 1/2 Cup MagicalButter Tincture
How To
  1. Remove pork from freezer and slice as thinly as possible. Slice pieces lengthwise into 1″–2″ wide strips.
  2. Meanwhile, Add your onion, chiles, mushrooms, garlic, Sprite, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, peppercorns, and 1 tablespoon of salt into the MagicalButter Machine. Set your temperature to 130º and your time to 1 hour.
  3. Once the machine finishes, pour your marinade into a large glass bowl and add pork a few pieces at a time. Make sure each piece is coated well so they don’t stick together and can evenly absorb marinade. Cover and chill for 6–8 hours.
  4. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat. Remove pork from marinade and thread onto skewers.
  5. Season pork lightly with salt and grill, undisturbed, until well browned, about 2 minutes. Turn and baste with marinade. Continue to grill, turning and basting every minute, until cooked through and browned all over, about 4 minutes longer.
  6. Remove from the grill and allow the skewers to rest for 2-3 minutes or until cool. Enjoy!
