I love satay. The first time I tried it, I was living out here in AZ and went to a restaurant called Malee's Thai Bistro with a friend. We ordered the chicken satay as the appetizer and I had the crispy basil chicken for the main course.... I was an immediate fan of both! I have tried numerous versions of satay since then and most of them have been pretty darn good. This is one that I came up with on my own. The pictures may not have turned out as well as I would have hoped, but the flavors were fantastic. Spot on if you ask me. It was peanuty and scrumptious. And the Spicy Dipping Sauce... well, that just added to the enjoyment of this dish, let me tell you. I loved the sauce so much (I know, you're shocked, right?) I had some leftover rice and I poured it over that the next day for lunch. DELICIOUS!!!
Peanut Satay Pork Chops with Spicy Dipping Sauce
2 Tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
1 Tablespoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
4 boneless pork loin chops
For the dipping sauce -
4 Tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon Hoisin
1 Tablespoon Sriracha
In a food processor, blend together the peanut butter, soy sauce, lemon juice, vegetable oil, garlic, coriander, chili powder, and cumin until smooth. Rub/pour over the pork, cover, and let marinate for 2-4 hours in the refrigerator.
Preheat grill to 400 degrees. Place pork directly over the fire (rub grates with oil first) and cook for 4-6 minutes per side or until the pork has reached 155-160 degrees.
While pork is cooking, mix together all ingredients for the sauce. Stir until well combined. Serve with pork and enjoy!
