Grilled Pork with Peanut Sauce

Serve this grilled pork with steamed brown rice. A refreshing accompaniment might be a sweet-hot cucumber salad. You can make one quickly by tossing diced cucumber with some rice vinegar seasoned to taste with sugar and red pepper flakes, depending on your tolerance for heat. 

Grilled Pork with Peanut Sauce


Quantity Ingredients
2 tbsp water
5 tsp creamy peanut butter
1 tsp rice vinegar
1/4 tsp granulated sugar
1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into chunks
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 slices (1 ounce each) firm-textured white bread, crumbled
2 tbsp 1% milk
1/4 cup ketchup
4 green onions, thinly sliced
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt


1. Preheat the broiler or grill (with a grill topper, if possible) to medium heat. In a food processor, combine the water, peanut butter, vinegar and sugar, and process until smooth. Transfer the sauce to a small bowl. 2. In the same processor bowl (no need to clean), combine the meat and garlic, and process until finely ground. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the crumbled bread, milk, ketchup, green onions, ginger and salt. Shape the mixture into 8 log shapes. Skewer each log onto two 8-inch skewers. 3. Spray the broiler pan (or grill topper, off the heat) with nonstick cooking spray. Broil or grill the pork, turning once, for 7 minutes, or until the pork is browned and cooked through. Serve with the peanut sauce on the side. Nutrition Information Per Serving: 244 calories, 8.3g total fat, 2.3g saturated fat, 68mg cholesterol, 1g dietary fibre, 638mg sodium.
