I love to cook, and these skewers are one of my favorite things to prepare. They have a wonderfully different flavor and go great with rice.

  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, coriander, lemon juice, oil, cumin, chili powder and garlic; add pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  2. Meanwhile, combine all sauce ingredients; cover and chill at least 1 hour.
  3. Drain and discard marinade. Thread meat on metal or soaked wooden skewers, leaving a small space between pieces. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
  4. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, turning several times. Serve with sauce. Yield: 4 servings.

"This seemed backwards to me. Used Smuckers Natural Peanut Butter and baked in the oven. Dipping sauce was very salty even though I used low sodium soy sauce. Very disappointed."

"Have made this recipe several times in the past few weeks. It is very easy to make. Also put peppers and onion on the skewers. Have not tried the spicy dipping sauce."
