Brown sugar on pork give these luscious skewers their tasty crunch. The fish sauce, now more widely available in shops, is definitely essential to achieve that Vietnamese flavour. The marinade should be enough for up to four steaks.
This was the winning recipe in our summer 2009 BBQ competition. Congrats!

don't normally cook outside if I can manage it, but this is well worth the effort. or, what little effort it took. think it could use some lime but otherwise very nice - 08 Jul 2009
like others i thought the ingredients list was too short to be rated so well, but won over by the inclusion of sugar. i was pleasantly surprised by the good balance of flavours - 08 Jul 2009
Altered ingredient amounts. I added a little garlic the first time since I was using an electric grill and thought it could use something. On the charcoal grill, I followed the recipe to the letter. - 22 Jun 2009
