Pork Satay Skewers with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Pork Satay Skewers with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Oh my goodness- how I love grilling! Although our summer lately has been a bit cloudy, I am glad that it has been dry enough to get out to grill as much as possible. One of my most happy places is near my grill, in my backyard. I can gaze out at the flowers and trees while I cook my favorite meals- what could be better? 

If you love grilling, you will love this recipe that has been in my family recipe notebook for a long time- it is about to make it's debut here on the blog and I am very excited to share it with you! 

I love any type of skewer- it is super easy to put together, yummy to eat, such fun for a party and simply divine! 

And, I adore any type of peanut sauce. This one may be made without the spice to make it a milder sauce for all ages of guests at your party or table. I usually omit the chili sauce if my son is going to eat these so that they won't be too spicy for his tastes. :) 

I hope that you enjoy this recipe & get grilling! 

If you are too busy to cook, I'm making this meal this Tuesday and will repeat it again soon for Josephine meals:

Enjoy!! 

Pork Skewer Marinade: 

Makes about 4 servings

1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into small cubes

1/2 teaspoon lime peel, grated

1 tablespoon water

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon curry powder

1 clove garlic, minced

1. Trim any visible fat from the meat and discard. Cut the meat into 4-1/2 inch strips. 

2. Combine all of the marinade ingredients mix to coat meat cubes. Cover and marinade 1-3 hours in the refrigerator. While the meat is marinating, soak the wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. 

Peanut Sauce: 

3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (I use natural peanut butter, no sugar added) 

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons soy sauce (gluten free) 

2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced

1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (optional) 

Mix all of the sauce ingredients together and blend well with a wire whisk. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings as needed. 

Grilling: 

1. Remove meat from marinade. Reserve marinade. 

2. Place marinade in a small saucepan and heat to brush on kabobs. 

3. Preheat your grill to medium high and skewer meat onto skewers. Cook well on each side. 

4. Serve with steamed brown rice and drizzle with peanut sauce. 

Enjoy!
