Summer Grillin’ with Pork and Peanut Sauce

I love to grill. I have just discovered how easy it really is. Buy meat, dip meat sometimes, slab it on the grill, flip, and eat. So now that I know I can do this and it tastes good when I do, why would I cook any other way? I have been trying to get more grilling recipes from the web, Martha is always a good place. But I discovered this grill recipe recently and must share, Pork with Peanut Sauce.


My hubby and I love East Indian food and Thai food, (another love discovered in the last couple of years, I was missing out). So searching for Thai recipes, I found this great one for Grilled Pork with peanut dipping sauce. It resembles Satay sauce that comes in Thai food, Yum. I used pork, but you can use chicken. This would be great with chicken on a skewer.

I made the sauce first, using half as a marinade for the pork tenders. After 30-40 minutes or so of marinating, I grilled them. They grilled great, I even got the grill marks for presentation, big plus. I also grilled asparagus on the grill rack above. Flip the pork after a few minutes and check for doneness.


Then the best part. Cutting up pork into bite size pieces and dipping, no slathering, them in the peanut sauce. Jordan always says he could drink that stuff. Even my kids love to dip.

  1. I made this with chicken for dinner. We don’t have a grill so I just cooked it on a frying pan. It was so yummy. I actually put it over rice and some steamed veggies with the extra sauce drizzled over the top. It was super easy and very yummy. I will be making this again. Thanks for a great recipe!

  2. You can get coconut milk in either the Asian section or Latin section of any grocery store. It comes in a can. Good Luck.

  3. I just recently discovered that I love Thai food as well, so I will definitely be trying this recipe out.
    My favorite spot to eat thai…. Pawit’s Royal Thai …. it is just east of the Cottonwood Mall. It is new and used to be Hong Kong something or other. Give it a try if you are ever in the neighborhood.
