  • 500 grams pork mince
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1 tsp fresh turmeric grated
  • 1 handful spinach or kale chopped finely
  • 1 handful green beans chopped finely
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil for cooking
  • 4-5 stalks fresh lemongrass bottom white section


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a bowl, except the oil and mix to combine

  2. Chop the lemongrass talks in half so that you have 9 or 10 of them to use

  3. Mold the pork mixture into logs that are not too thick (or they will take too long to cook).

  4. Insert a lemongrass stalk through the middle of each piece of pork you have molded. You may need to squeeze the mixture around the stalk of each one to ensure it is firm.

  5. Heat a pan to medium hot on the stove and add the coconut oil to melt

  6. Add the skewers to the hot pan and cook, turning to cook each side every couple of minutes

  7. Serve with salad of choice, or dipping sauce
