Munchies & Minis | S1E5: Orc Horde Cherry Charred Pork

Orc Horde Cherry Charred Pork Skewers inspired by Dungeons & Dragons. Recipe by The Gluttonous Geek.

Welcome back, Geeky Gluttons, to another episode of Munchies & Minis!

For those just joining us, Munchies & Minis is a live Twitch cooking show where I make a tabletop or Dungeons & Dragons-inspired snack and then paint a miniature. To kick the first season off, I decided to start @RaineRysa‘s #52WeeksofDnD fanart challenge. Last week we made some Cheet-Orbs & Dew-BQ Sauce for the challenge word “Party.” This week’s challenge word is “Orc.”

So for this episode, I had to think of feeding the hard-working orc invader on the go. Orcs rarely farm, hence the need for raiding parties. They might keep pigs because they breed quickly and you can feed them anything. Otherwise, they’re probably just going to cook up whatever they happen to raid over a warm, crackling fire.

Why not just go with that instinct then? That’s why I decided to make some grilled bacon-wrapped pork skewers with cherries and red onion. The bacon keeps the lean pork moist while grilling. Cherries would be some perfect low hanging fruit for a sweet note. And red onions keep well while traveling, adding a spicy bite that’s delicious whether cooked or eaten raw.

I hope that this episode inspired you to start a culinary campaign of your own. Next week I’ll be tackling the #52WeeksOfDnD challenge word “Quest” with a recipe I’d like to call “Treasure Chest McGuffin Muffins .”
