Sun Dried Pork Snack Lesson

Sun Dried Pork SnackMoo Dad Deaw (หมูแดดเดียว) is a terrific and very authentic Thailand appetizer, made by sun drying seasoned strips of pork until they are semi-dried, then deep frying them to a flavorful golden brown. It is a little like jerky, but not hard and chewy. The meat is soft and juicy, and coated with a sweet marinade that is rich with the flavors of coriander root, garlic, and sesame seed. They can be served alone, or with one of our delicious dipping sauces. Add a few crisp, raw vegetables, such as cabbage, green beans, or cucumber, and some warm and chewy sticky rice, and you have an excellent Thai-style crudité platter for your next dinner party. If you don’t eat pork, try this recipe with beef for an equally satisfying dish.
