Sticky Pork & Zucchini Skewers with Miso Slaw

Sticky Pork Skewers & Slaw

Do you eat pork very often?  We probably have it as a roast in winter more than any other time but as we’ve been having a lot of chicken lately I thought I’d change it a bit and put some pork on our fork or skewer as the case may be.  These Sticky Pork & Zucchini Skewers and miso slaw went down a treat – anything on a stick right?  Well, truth be told, the slaw went down well with the adults but the kids had noodles and kale chips so either option works well with this dish.  Still being truthful my girls adore kale chips but the little friends having dinner with us left theirs on the plate but they “loved, loved, loved” the skewers! I’ll take that as a win as I know kale chips aren’t for everyone!

This is pretty quick to make and takes a short time to cook so good for those busy nights.

Sticky Pork & Zucchini Skewers with Slaw


    For the pork skewers
  • 1 kg pork fillets, cubed
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Tamari or Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 zucchinis thinly sliced in rounds
  • For the Slaw
  • 2 Tsp Miso Paste
  • 1 apple roughly chopped for the Thermomix or grated if not
  • 2 spring onions, white part only, " " "
  • 2 stems kale, leaves only, " " "
  • 1/4 savoy cabbage, " " "
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Tamari or Soy Sauce


  1. For the pork put all the ingredients in a dish making sure the meat is covered and marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. Soak some bamboo skewers in water (so they don't burn when cooking) while the pork is marinating
  3. Preheat the grill and line a baking tray with baking paper with a grill tray on top
  4. Thread the pork and zucchini on the skewers and then grill for 5 or so minutes each side, using the left over marinade to glaze occassionally.
  5. While the skewers are cooking make the slaw. If using a Thermomix put all the ingredients in the bowl and blitz Speed 4 / 5 seconds. If doing by hand chop all ingredients finely & combine all in a bowl.
  6. To serve put a "bed" of slaw topped with the skewers.

If using noodles just follow the packet instructions and this is how I make my kale chips.

Do you have much pork?  Kale Chips, yay or nay?

      Just gives a punch of flavour without making it to heavy.
