Now for the Mookata Thai BBQ Recipe


For the broth I heated up some chicken stock, with added garlic, black pepper corns and roughly chopped onion.

This dish is so easy so let’s not bother with a recipe per se. In a serving bowl throw in shaved green papaya, dried shrimps, one roughly chopped red onion, one finely chopped chilli padi, two tablespoons of fish sauce, and one teaspoon of chili vinegar (or normal vinegar). Give it a good toss, sprinkle over some peanuts and serve immediately. Boom – this is a cracker folks!


Pork fillets – bash the fillets with a tenderising hammer and then cut in to thin slices. Add 2-3 teaspoons of chopped garlic, and 1/2 cup of lemon juice, and a good pinch of sea salt and cracked black pepper. Leave for 3-4 hours to marinade.

Rib eye – bash the meat with tenderising hammer and then slice in to thin strips. Throw it in the zip-lock bag and marinate with my version of Cambodian black pepper dipping sauce for 3-4 hours . Sauce recipe is as below;

  • 3 tablespoons of Yuzu;
  • 3 tablespoons of cracked Kampot black pepper;
  • 1 tablespoon of sea salt;
  • 2 tablespoons of chicken stock powder; and
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar.

Mix it all together and pour over the meat, Make sure all the meat is covered in the marinade.

Lamb leg fillets – bash with the hammer again, cut in to thin strips, squeeze over a whole lemon’s worth of juice, 2 teaspoons of chopped garlic, and some rosemary stalks. Sprinkle with cracked black pepper and sea salt, and again marinade for 3-4 hours.
