AND THE WINNER FOR MOST CREATIVE/INTERESTING PORK COMMENT:
Johnathan Martinez from Celebrity Grill Podcast and his “Mojo Marinated Dirty Laundry”:
“I got a fun, creative recipe for you. I call it “Mojo Marinated Dirty Laundry!” Oh yes. Let’s break it down: 1. Take a standard sized pork loin. 2. Cut the loin length-wise as if to stuff it so it completely flattens out. 3. Cut it into 3-4 inch long strips. 4. Marinade the strips in your favorite Mojo Criollo mixture. 5. Skewer the thin end of the strips by piercing only one end of each strip about a centimeter from the edge so the thick end is away from the skewer. Thick onion slices go excellent between each pork slice. 6. Grill over direct high heat for 2-3 minutes on one side. 7. Flip & grill the other side 2-3 minutes. 8. (*Here’s the show-stopper!) Take two bricks – yes, real bricks. Lay them horizontally on their side about 1 skewer’s length apart. Lay the almost finished skewer on top of the bricks. The meat & onions will naturally hang vertically like a line of laundry. (Add a bit of pepper for the “dirty.”) 9. Call your friends over to revel at your grilling prowess. 10. Bask in the glory of your creative grilling superiority. Hope you like it!” Yes, we like it! Fun idea!
