Sweet & Hot Chilli Pork Skewers

When Masterfoods recently sent me a basket of goodies along with a copy of their recent Lifting the Lid on Dinnertime report about the social role of food in Australia I was startled by some of the results…

It seems that only 35% of respondents ate with family regularly and just 20% of respondents ate a meal cooked from scratch five times a week or more. As for the current status on dads dining in underpants… there was no percentage given.

Masterfoods were kind enough to send us these goodies along with a report on teh social role of food in Australia #MakeDInnertimeMatter

MasterFoods also asked Aussie families who their ideal dinner guest would be in this super cute video and their answers may surprise you.

It inspired me to ask my kids who their ultimate dinner guests would be. Both of them also said it would be their dad and I, followed by their extended family. And we didn’t even have to pay them. Mind you Sugarpuff also requested the presence of Queen Elsa, Katy Perry, Daffy Duck and her old pre-school teacher, Nathan. While Rafferty wanted J.K. Rowling, Dave Grohl, Billy-Joe from Greenday, Richard Branson, Thor and Lara Croft (conveniently providing a little eye candy for both parents). He’s also saved a seat for Adam Liaw… provided he cooks. But I digress.

Even without a slew of real and fictional celebrity guests, it’s easy to make #makemealtimesmatter simply by being present and getting everyone involved.

Indeed Raffles and Sugarpuff helped me with the gathering, peeling, cutting and skewering of this these quick and easy hot and sweet chilli pork skewers, which we whipped up using a piece of pork belly and some of the spices and flavours Masterfoods sent us.  Raffles even plated it up using an image on the cover of a recent Donna Hay magazine for inspiration.

And it was good.

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. Masterfoods sent us a lovely hamper of herbs and spices with a copy of their fascinating study into Aussie eating habits. We chose to use the ingredients in this recipe. You can find out more about the survey results here #makemealtimesmatter

    Yum! Pork isn’t something that I remember to put on the shopping list! I really should when it’s on special!

    It’s great that you’ve changed your mealtime habits! And I love both their lists-it says a lot about each of their personalities! 😀

    This looks awesome, we are the same in our family with mealtimes always being together at the table, they no only eat so much more when at the table together but also its a great chance to really see what is going on with their lives.

      Absolutely. MIne are such whirlwinds it’s the only time I can keep them still enough for a conversation.

      He’s lovely. And she adores him. Personally, I’m more excited by the attendance of Thor and Elsa, I reckon those two stormy hotties might hit it off. LOLOL

    I love Pork Recipes, my mum use to buy the marinated honey and soy ones from the supermarket many years ago. so good. Your recipe looks great and I might need to re-spark some love for Pork again.

    Oh I love that you guys are their ultimate dinner guests! So sweet! These sound amazing. I’m a big fan of experimenting with different herbs and seasonings too. I’ll be adding these to our shopping list!
