Georgian-style grilled pork with cherry and dill sauce


Share recipe

This is a fun and unusual way to serve grilled pork, based on a Georgian recipe for pork with sour plum sauce. Here, plums are replaced with cherries, which match beautifully with dill to make a unique sauce with a deep red hue.




Georgian-style pork skewers

Cherry and dill sauce

To make the skewers, place all the ingredients (except the pork) in a blender and blitz to form a paste. Spread over the pork and leave to marinate for an hour or so. Thread onto skewers
To make the sauce, place all the ingredients (except the dill) in a saucepan with 200ml water and bring to a simmer. Cook for 30–40 minutes until it’s starting to look thick and syrupy. Whizz in a blender until smooth, then pass through a sieve to remove any stray pits or skins
Stir in the chopped dill and check the seasoning – the sauce should be both sweet and sour. If it tastes flat, add more lemon juice
Cook the skewers either under a grill for 15–20 minutes (turning regularly) or over direct heat on a barbecue
