One thing that really makes this Satay recipe stand out is the peanut butter. The nutty flavor mixed with the mild smokiness of the soy sauce and the sweet brown sugar combines well to form delicious morsels perfect for get-togethers. Serve as appetizers or the main dish.


  • 1 pound boneless pork loin


  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter

  • 1/2 cup minced onion

  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1 dash Tabasco

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 cup low sodium soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 to 2 medium green onions, finely chopped

  • 1 small chili, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon fish sauce

Steps to Make It

  1. Cut pork into 1/2" cubes and place into a resealable plastic bag. Place remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until evenly mixed. Pour mixture over pork and gently toss to coat, making sure all pieces have the marinade on them. Place in refrigerator to marinate for at least 30 minutes. For best flavor, marinate 2 hours to overnight.

  2. Thread pork on skewers and grill over hot coals for eight to 10 minutes, turning occasionally until done. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for one hour to prevent burning. 

  3. Combine dipping sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Taste for salt and spice content and adjust to your liking. Serve with fresh of the grilled pork.
