PostSubject: Pinchos Morunos Recipe   Mon Aug 23, 2010 11:42 pm

Pinchos Morunos are skewered kebabs of marinated pork which are served in tapas bars all over Spain. Of course the actual marinade varies from bar to bar but this is the one that we use. You may want to experiment with different quantities and spices.

The size can also vary from being small skewers with 2 or 3 chunks of meat to larger ones with 7 or 8 chunks. This recipe is for the larger variety but again you may want to go for the small ones and get more pinchos out of the same mix.

Pinchos Morunos are ideal for BBQs or tapas evenings.

Pinchos Morunos ingredients:
For 8 large skewers

1 kg cubed pork
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
2 tsp paprika
4 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
2 tbsp lemon juice
6 tbsp olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Grind the cumin and the coriander seeds and put them in a large bowl. Add the garlic, paprika, oregano, a pinch of salt and then mix in the lemon juice and olive oil.

If you did not buy it cubed then cut the pork into small cubes. It is up to you if you want to remove any fat that is on the pork. Spanish people will always tell you that the fat is the tasty part of the meat but not everyone wants to eat it. Put the meat into the marinade and make sure it all covered by the marinade. Leave it to marinate for about 2 hours in a cool place.

After about 2 hours put the meat onto skewers. You should get about 8 skewers from this quantity of meat depending on how much meat you put on each one. I used metal skewers but do remember if you are using wooden ones it is a good idea to soak them in water for a while as this should prevent them from burning.

You can then cook them over a preheated grill or on the barbeque. Remember to turn them over part way through cooking and spoon the juices over them. Cooking time will depend on the heat of the grill or BBQ and also how big or small you cut the pork. I would estimate about 10 minutes under the grill.
