Pork Satay with Thai-Peanut Sauce

Coconut- Curry Pork Satay

My husband took one bite of pork dipped in the peanut sauce and said, 'You made this??'- he loved it, and so did I!

Yield: 6 servings (1 skewer + 2 Tablespoons sauce)

Prep Time: 20 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Total Time: 35 min


1/2 cup light coconut milk
2 Tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon ketchup
1 Tablespoon peanut butter
1 teaspoon Thai fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 pound boneless pork tenderloin, trimmed of all visible fat, cut diagonally into 1/4-inch-thick slices
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1. Spray grill or broiler rack with nonstick spray; prepare the grill or preheat the broiler.

2. To make the dipping sauce: Bring coconut milk, brown sugar, soy sauce, ketchup, peanut butter, fish sauce, and crushed red pepper to a boil in a medium saucepan. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium-high heat until the flavors are blended and the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in cilantro. Cover and keep warm.

3. Combine pork, sesame oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a medium bowl; toss to coat.

4. Thread the pork onto each of 12 (6-inch) metal or bamboo skewers. Grill or broil the pork 5 inches from the heat until cooked through, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer the skewers to a platter; brush with some of the sauce. Serve the remaining sauce on the side.


*If you opt for using bamboo skewers, be sure to soak the skewers in cold water at least 1 hour before using, so they won't burn during grilling.
