Grilled Pork Tenderloin Satay Recipe

Grilled Pork Tenderloin Satay Recipe

My dad made this often when grilling for the family. I love this served on roasted veggies and yellow rice. Peanut butter and soy sauce come together for great Asian flavor. —Gayle Jefferson, Las Vegas, Nevada
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, chopped
