The supermarket ads this week scream “Grill, grill, grill!” It’s our American way of saying farewell to summer, and there are many options for doing so. Even in California, where we can cook outdoors practically all year round, Labor Day weekend still calls for grilling up a storm.

Viet Restaurant-Style Lemongrass Pork – I never tire of this recipe. It’s sweet, salty, and delicious. You can use the marinade on chicken, too.
