  • 2 pounds Smithfield Fresh Pork Tenderloin
  • cup sweet and sour sauce
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil plus extra
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
  • cup chopped peanuts


  • In a large bowl, mix together sweet and sour sauce, coconut milk, garlic, peanut butter, basil and five-spice powder. Set aside.
  • Cut pork tenderloin into ½-inch square strips lengthwise and toss with satay mixture until well coated. Let sit at room temp 15-30 minutes before grilling, or cover and chill 1-2 hours to allow flavors to soak in even more.
  • If using wooden skewers soak in water to prevent burning. Thread pork tenderloin strips on skewers accordion style, reserving remaining satay sauce.
  • Preheat grill to medium heat. Add pork skewers, close lid and cook 5-7 minutes, until bottoms have sear marks. Rotate and coat tops with remaining sauce. Close lid and cook 5 minutes more, or until internal temp reaches at least 145-150° F. Sprinkle with chopped basil and peanuts as garnish and serve immediately.
