Tenderloin is an inexpensive, lean cut of pork that's perfect for slicing and broiling on skewers. The luscious homemade peanut sauce does double duty as marinade and dipping sauce, cutting down on prep time. Affordable appetizers never tasted so good!pork

  • 450 g pork tenderloins
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Easy Peanut Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons each sodium-reduced soy sauce and unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian chili paste (such as sambal oelek)
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced


Easy Peanut Sauce: In small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil and chili paste; slowly whisk in hot water until smooth. Stir in green onions.

Slice pork crosswise into about 3/16-inch (5 mm) thick strips; thread onto metal or soaked wooden skewers. Arrange on lightly greased rimmed baking sheet; sprinkle with pepper and salt. Brush 1/4 cup of peanut sauce all over pork.

Broil (without turning) until juices run clear when pork is pierced, about 6 minutes. Serve with remaining peanut sauce.

Tip from The Test Kitchen - Even if you soak your wooden skewers well, the ends will burn under the intense heat of the broiler
