Spicy Sate Inspired Pork

February 22, 2012


I’m always on the lookout for new recipes and often find some of the tastiest in catalogs that specialize in cooking products.

Such is the case with an easy delicious take on sate that I originally found in the Penzeys spice catalog.

I’ve changed it up quite a bit from the version Penzeys published. (Among the differences: their version included a separate peanut dipping sauce, and was designed to be cooked on skewers on the grill.)

My adaptation is cooked in the oven and the marinade turns into a key element of the peanut sauce. Serve it with rice & a simple vegetable like creamed spinach.

It’s spicy with a touch of crunchy, and most of all, super yummy!

You’ll Need:

2 lbs pork tenderloin or lean boneless pork chops

2 tbs sate seasoning (Penzeys sate is great)

1 tbs curry powder (Penzeys rogan josh is excellent)

4 tbs water

3 tbs soy sauce

3 tbs vegetable oil

1 tbs asian sesame oil

2 tbs vinegar

2 tbs creamy peanut butter

A handful of roasted peanuts, roughly chopped

A lime

2 scallions, trimmed and diced

A glass bowl large enough to accommodate the pork & marinade

A roasting pan large enough to accommodate the pork & marinade in a single layer

Heavy duty aluminum foil


1. Slice the pork tenderloin into pieces approximately 1 inch thick & reserve, or if using boneless chops, simply set them aside to add to the marinade.

2. To create the marinade, combine the sate, curry, water, soy sauce, oil, sesame oil, & vinegar in the bowl.

3. Add the pork and turn it over so that all sides are coated.

4. Cover and let it marinate in the fridge at least 2 hours.

5. Line the roasting pan with foil.

6. Place the pork & marinade in the lined roaster & cover with more foil, crimping sides to create a good seal.

7. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

8. Remove the foil and broil the pork on each side until browned.

9. Put the peanut butter in a bowl suitable for gravy.

10. Put the pork on a platter, then whisk the hot sauce from the pan into the peanut butter in the gravy bowl.

11. Squeeze the lime over the pork, then sprinkle the chopped peanuts & scallion on top and pass the sauce on the side.
