Chinese BBQ'd Pork and Smoky Fried Rice Over The Coals

This recipe is one of my favorites for pork! It's soooo good roasted over hot coals. :)

Here's how I butterfly a pork loin





Then I score the loin....



Make my marinade... (make a double batch if needed to cover the meat)
2 cloves minced garlic
one "thumb sized" piece of fresh ginger peeled and minced
3 tsp sherry
3 1/2 TBS soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 TBs honey
1/2 tsp five spice
and about 1/2 tsp red food coloring
Bagged and let it chill overnight...







This time I sprinkled the loin with Simply Marvelous Spicy Apple Rub for a nice kick.



Onto the hot coals ...



I flipped the loin over to roast the top too....



Added a bowl of rice with chicken stock and scallions to catch some of the smoke. When the rice absorbed the stock I covered the dish and let it sit until ready to make fried rice.





I drizzled asparagus with olive oil and seasoned with coarse salt and cracked black pepper..



The whole cook took 35 minutes....



The Chinese BBQ'd pork, smoky fried rice and grilled asparagus...



It was sooo tasty. One of my favorite meals. :)



I was a happy girl again. :)

I've never considered cooking a butterflied loin flat but I will now as this looks delicious and your presentation is outstanding.

Jeanie, this was one of the first things I made from your site. I take a pork tender loin and inject as well as soak.

Sprinkle with the Dizzy Pig Pineapple and throw on a hot grill. Mmmmm good.

I'm drooling now. Might have to make one this weekend...

Thanks Lisa! Hope you try that marinade sometime.. it's one of my favorites. :)

cowgirl said...

Thanks Larry! The loin cooks so fast this way....and it stayed moist. Not sure if it was because of the marinade or what but the meat was tender and moist.
Hope you have a great weekend!

cowgirl said...

Linda Thanks! Come on out, there's plenty of room out here! :)

cowgirl said...

Bill that sounds great! I will try the Dizzy Pig too..
This spicy apple had a bit of heat so I used it sparingly..it was nice. :)
Hope your weekend is a good one!

cowgirl said...

Pid it's nice to see you! :)
The loin cooks fast, kind of reminds me of a thick pork chop. :)
They are good stuffed and rolled too but I kind of like this method.
Hope all is well in your neck of the woods. :)

Awesome pics and recipe as per usual. Thanks for sharing. God I love pork!

Rich said...

Beautiful color on that pork meat.

Unlike most people, I believe there are five flavors in life:

1. Sweet
2. Salty
3. Sour
4. Bitter
5. Smokey

You seem to recognize that. I've never thought of doing rice over coals, but that's a great idea!

cowgirl said...

Thanks EasyPeasy! I appreciate you stopping by too. :)

cowgirl said...

Rich I like the way you think... glad to see you added smokey to the list. :)
Smoked rice is really good, I hope you give it a try sometime.
Thanks Rich, have a great weekend! :)

Jeanie ... I do love the way you cook. It looks absolutely amazing ( but with you that is nothing out of the ordinary.)
Think I am gonna add that one to the Memphis in May hospitality table this year. The theme country is the Philippines. I think a side of grilled pineapple and plantain instead of the asparagus.
Wanna come and cook it? I have plenty of space available for ya. Trying to get Herb to join us too! I'll get him to bring coconut briquets.

Old Smoke said...

WOW! That looks tasty
I'll have to try as soon as I can get my cookers setup after construction
Hope your weekend is good....;)

David said...

Beautiful as usual Cowgirl! That loin is luscious!

cowgirl said...

Thank you Marc, you are too kind!
I think this pork recipe would go well with what you have planned.
That would be amazing to cook with you and Herb. I don't think he has been to the US before. He would love Memphis in May I bet. :)

Thanks for the invitation Marc, I am pretty sure I won't be able to come. Too much going on here this May.
Hope you take pics for me though!
Thanks again...

cowgirl said...
