Pork hell


Pork Hell

Ahh, one of my most favorite bar snacks.  At my local pub they have a somewhat unique dish known as หมูนรก [muu narok] which literally translates to pork hell. Easy to make since everything is deep-fried: pork, lemon grass, garlic, chilis, shallots, and a leaf called bai makruud [ใบมะกรูด]. While deep-fried [หมูทอด] pork is common, you don’t see this one around much.  Just pick at it with your fingers. It goes excellent with beer!
