  • 2 tsp (10 mL) minced garlic

  • 3 Tbsp (45 mL) brown sugar

  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) soy sauce

  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) peanut butter

  • 2 tsp (10 mL) grated fresh ginger

  • 1 - 1 1/2 lbs (500 - 750 g) Pork tenderloin, cut into ¼ inch (.5 cm) strip

Directions

  1. Combine red pepper flakes, orange juice, cilantro, garlic, brown sugar, soy sauce and peanut butter, ginger and pour into a resealable bag. Add pork to marinade and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

  2. To make Peanut Dipping Sauce, heat canola oil in a saucepan. Gently cook garlic, without browning. Stir in peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, and cayenne. Thin with water if sauce becomes too thick. Set aside.

  3. Remove pork from marinade and thread onto skewers. Broil or grill for about 4 minutes, or until pork is cooked through – but not overcooked. Serve with Peanut Dipping Sauce.
