  • Place pork cubes in a large resealable plastic bag, and pour mixture over meat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 6 hours, or overnight.

  • Preheat grill for medium heat. Remove pork cubes from bag, and thread onto skewers. In a small saucepan, boil the marinade for 5 minutes. Reserve a small amount of the marinade for basting, and set the remainder aside to serve as a dipping sauce.

  • Lightly oil preheated grill. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, or until well browned, turning and brushing frequently with cooked marinade. Serve with dipping sauce.

Cook's Note:

The skewers can be also be broiled instead of grilled.

I have never had anything but raves about this recipe. I have made it several times now. I usually make a whole recipe and freeze half for later use. The meat has a strong peanutty taste. You can adjust the heat easily and I tend to make mine mild since it must be child friendly. I will usually serve over rice for a main dish with vegies. I have tried cooking it several ways. Outdoor grill stuck and the meat fell off the skewers. Indoor grill (George Forman) worked great if you are only doing a few. Oven works good for a large batch, but I have never had much luck broiling anything, so some were a little under done. The last time I stir-fried in a wok. This is the method I will use from now on. All the meat was cooked and none was dried out or under done. Read More

I should have heeded Quadon's advice. It WAS way too salty but seemed great if I could just get past the saltiness. Next time I will definitely use low sodium soy sauce unsalted peanuts and unsalted butter. It still should have enough flavor with everything else. Read More

Fantastic! I thought this would steal the show in the dinner I prepared. I used strips and skewered these rather than cubes but that won't change anything. Definately one for the archives! Read More

TOO SALTY! Rinse the peanuts 3 times if they are salted then dry them with paper towels and dry roast them in a medium hot pan for 4 to 7 minutes shaking the pan several times until the nuts are no longer steaming and begin to aquire a color. Use low sodium Soy Sauce. But this recipe was delicious. The green onions were a delightful note. If you can grab your hands on 1 tbs of dried lemon grass and 1 tsp of fish sauce (in addition to removing the salt from the peanuts) you'd be giving yourself a treat indeed! Read More

I made a double recipe for a large gathering but had to make it in 2 batches because of blender capacity. However - it was well worth the trouble. Everyone raved and I'm planning on making this again very soon! I highly recommend it. Read More

"This is FABULOUS!!!" Those are the exact words out of my husband's shocked mouth the second he took a bite. I too did not read ahead and didn't realize that it needed to marinate. Went out for dinner last night and it was so worth it to let it sit over night. Didn't cube my pork I cut my loin into very thin chops. That was the only difference in what I did for the most part. One half of my grill cooks hotter so a few of them were slightly burnt. This changes the flavor altogether and is enjoyable also. My daughter that won't touch food that has the smallest hint of black on it wouldn't trade in her burnt piece. We used our cook marinade for our rice instead of dipping our pork in it. Read More

This was so awesome. I made it last nite and my 4 kids devoured it. I was surprised there was any left (I even doubled the recipe) but they argued over who got the left overs. Totally yummy totally easy. 5 stars for sure. I served it with pad thai it was perfect. I baked it (its winter here) at 450 for about 8 minutes. It was nicely done. Read More

Great recipe. I made it for an Asian themed dinner party & everyone had seconds. It is a bit salty so use either unsalted peanuts or low sodium soy sauce. I expected it to be a bit spicy b/c of the pepper flakes but it wasn't. If you like it hotter add more pepper flakes. I also made it with both chicken & pork & both were yummy. Read More

Delicious! Served this for the first time with company over and it was gobbled up. I marinated all day and then cooked it in a pan with some of the sauce. I didn't use the rest of the sauce. Thank you! Read More
