This savoury peanut sauce uses a bit of Thai red curry paste, which once opened, can be refrigerated for up to one year. Of course, you can omit it and still have a flavourful marinade.

  • Portion size 26 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pork tenderloin trimmed (about 1 lb)
Marinade:
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander or parsley
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated gingerroot
  • 1 tablespoon sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Thai red curry paste
Peanut Sauce:
  • 1/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Method

Peanut Sauce: In food processor, blend peanut butter, coconut milk, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar and hot pepper sauce until smooth. Pour into bowl; cover and set aside.

Cut pork into twenty-six 3- x 1/2- x 1/4-inch (8 x 1 cm x 5 mm) strips. Set aside.

Marinade: In large bowl, whisk together sugar, coriander, lime juice, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and curry paste; add pork, tossing to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate sauce and pork separately for up to 24 hours. Bring sauce to room temperature, adding up to 2 tbsp/25 mL water to thin if desired.)

Thread pork onto small metal or soaked wooden skewers; place on broiler pan or foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Broil, 6 inches (15 cm) from heat and turning once, until lightly browned and no longer pink inside, about 6 minutes. Serve with Peanut Sauce for dipping.
