This week I tried a new recipe from a cookbook we found at my parents house. I really should thank Nate, he was the one to show me the recipe. And after some reminders, I got the ingredients and made it. And I'm so glad I did! It was simple to make and looked (and tasted) fancy. I served this with a simple spinach salad and Mushroom Cherry Couscous.
Pork Brochettes with Peanut Sauce
from Complete Outdoor Living Cookbook from Williams-Sonoma
1/2 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tsp fresh oregano
1 tsp fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp cumin
salt and pepper
1 lb pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch pieces
for the sauce:
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup coconut milk
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
2 tsp minced fresh ginger
2 cloves minced garlic
In a bowl, combine the orange juice, lime juice, oil, oregano, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper. Whisk until blended. Thread pork onto wooden or metal skewers and arrange in a shallow dish. Pour sauce over pork and let set at least 6 hours (or up to 12 hours).
Meanwhile make the sauce: in a bowl, whisk together all the ingredients.
Place skewers of pork on a hot grill and grill until done. Remove from the grill and serve with peanut sauce.
