    1. 1. In a blender, purée the lemon grass, garlic, galangal, and as much water necessary to facilitate blending, until it becomes a smooth marinade. Transfer to a bowl and add the sugar, salt, turmeric, and peanuts. Pour the marinade over the pork and massage thoroughly (you may wish to use gloves or tongs, since the marinade will stain your fingers). Marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for 24 hours
    2. 2. Pierce the marinated pork onto the skewers, aiming for the center of the meat so that it lays flat on the skewers. Arrange 3 to 5 pieces onto each skewer for handling
    3. 3. Arrange the cucumber and onion on a plate
