"I cooked this recipe for lunch and I can highly recommend the marinade. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I cooked the meat in a hot, lightly oiled pan, instead of on skewers on a grill. The meat came out wonderful. It was juicy, flavorful, and seared to a lovely reddish color because of the soy.

The peanut sauce, on the other hand, just didn't work for us. The only flavors which came through were peanut and salt. We felt it would have benefited from fish sauce instead of soy, some ginger, and lime rind or lemongrass. I will make the Satay pork again, but I'll use a different dipping sauce."

"This is one of my favorite recipes from quick and Simple. I've made it a bunch of times. Going to make it for dinner tomorrow in fact! It's so different from what I usually make. I made it for a friend once so she could try it too. I'm a sucker for peanut butter and wasn't sure how it would be in a dish like this, but it's SO good! I'm actually going to let it marinade for 24+ hrs. so making dinner after work won't take as long."

"My husband and I loved this! The marinade is versatile, so I like to double it up to use on steak and chicken. If making the dip, I'll probably go a little easy on the peanut butter next time."

"I was looking for something easy and interesting and this recipe sure fit the bill. I'm kind of daring in the kitchen, so when we were expecting some friends over,I thought "Why not?" There wasn't a scrap left. Raves all around. Thank you!"
