Skew skew skew!

It's graduation time again. Tons of my good friends left the college, and it makes me so sad. I'm especially sad that my foodies friends are gone :'( Now I have to find people who like to eat and cook.... >.<

The end of semester also means cleaning up my fridge. I still have quite a lot of meat in the fridge, so I have to start using them every day so I have nothing left in the fridge. I wouldn't want to eat meat that has been stored for 3 months in the freezer....

Sate babi (pork skewer) with mushroom, green onion and onion

I wanted to use ginger, but it turned out that the ginger germinated and grew, and I could see molds on it, too. So I threw it away :(

This is my original recipe. It's pretty good, but I'm sure you can modify it to suit your taste :)

- 1 piece pork loin, cubed
- 1 1/2 Tbsp sweetened soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp light soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp white sesame seed
- 1 1/2 Tbsp melted butter
- 1/2 tsp minced garlic
- 1/2 bulb onion, cut into thin squares of 2cmx2cm
- 1 green onion, cut into 2cm rods
- 3 button mushrooms
- 1 T butter

1) Marinate pork in sweetened soy sauce, light soy sauce, sesame seed, butter and garlic. Mix well and leave in fridge for 1 night.
2) Preheat oven to 350F.
3) While waiting for the oven to heat up, place marinated meat, onion, mushroom, and green onion in alternates (positioning doesnt matter - use your own creativity)
4) Melt 1 T butter and mix into the marinade sauce. Brush the meat with the marinade + butter sauce and put in oven for 5 minutes.
5) Brush the meat again with the marinade and butter sauce, and set the temperature of oven to BROIL mode. Leave for another 5 minutes.
6) Turn the skewer over and brush with marinade and butter sauce again. Leave for another 5 minutes.
7) Serve.
