Pork and pineapple skewers with a coconut-peanut sauce.
A recipe from my Thai sister-in-law, further simplified and adapted to use only widely available ingredients.
|1||pork tenderloin, cut into 2 cm cubes||300 g|
|2 tbsp||wheat-free soy sauce, plus more for the sauce||30 mL|
|1/2 tsp||ground cumin||1 g|
|1/2 tsp||turmeric||2 g|
|1 tsp||brown sugar||4 g|
|3 slices||canned pineapple||110 g|
|1/3 cup||unsweetened coconut milk||85 mL|
|2 tbsp||peanut butter, natural||35 g|
|4||bamboo or wooden skewers|
|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
Before you start
- Using a sharp knife, trim any fat from the pork fillet, then cut it into 2 cm cubes and put the cubes in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
- Crush half of the garlic and chop the onion, then place them in a blender or food processor. Add the soy sauce, spices, half of the brown sugar, and a small piece of pineapple (about ¼ slice). Process until the mixture is almost smooth. Add the mixture to the pork, tossing well to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper. Cut the pineapple slices into small "skewable" segments, then arrange the pineapple and pork alternately on the skewers.
- Cook the skewers on a medium-hot grill or under the broiler for about 10 min, turning them occasionally, until golden-brown and thoroughly cooked.
- While the satays are cooking, prepare the peanut sauce : pour the coconut milk into a small saucepan and stir in the peanut butter. Add the remaining garlic, remaining brown sugar and a few teaspoons of soy sauce. Heat gently, stirring, until the sauce is smooth and hot. Keep it warm.
- Serve the skewers with the peanut sauce.
