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.
“The soy sauce, garlic, brown sugar, and peanut butter come together as a rich and savory marinade for tender pork satay. Whether grilled over coals or gas the satays are a delicious appetizer or main dish, especially when served with a chili laced dipping sauce.” —Joan Velush
2 pounds boneless pork loin
For the Marinade
2 tablespoons smooth 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 lightly packed brown sugar
1 dash Tabasco
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
For the 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
Gather the ingredients.
Cut pork into 1-inch pieces and place into a resealable bag.
For the marinade, place peanut butter, onion, garlic, lemon juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, Tabasco, and oil in a blender and purée until well combined.
Pour the marinade over the pork and toss, making sure all the pieces are coated. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. For best flavor, marinate 2 hours or up to overnight.
If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning.
Prepare a medium-high (400 F to 475 F) gas or charcoal grill fire.
Thread pork on skewers and grill, turning occasionally until the internal temperature reaches 145 F, 6 to 8 minutes total.
For the dipping sauce, combine the soy sauce, water, green onions, chili, brown sugar, and fish sauce in a small bowl. Taste and adjust to your liking. Serve with the grilled pork.
