Skewered Pork

Makes 4 servings

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced

  • 8 bamboo skewers (6 inches long)
  • 1 7-ounce package Chinese noodles or other noodles
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Trim fat and tendons from pork. Slice across the grain very thinly and on a slight angle; set aside.

In a small saucepan, whisk water, peanut butter, soy sauce, lemon juice, sugar, garlic and pepper flakes. Add pork and stir until well coated. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Thread meat onto bamboo skewers, reserving excess sauce. Place on rack of broiler pan (or grill).

Preheat broiler (or grill). Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, broil (grill) meat 5 to 6 inches from heat source for 15 minutes or until no longer pink in the center, turning once during broiling (grill).

Meanwhile, whisk cornstarch into remaining peanut butter mixture in saucepan until well blended. Stirring over medium-high heat, bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute.

Place drained noodles on a serving plate. Arrange skewers on top. Pour sauce over and garnish with tomatoes and green pepper. Serve with additional red pepper flakes if desired.
