  1. FOR PORK:.
  2. Cut the pork into bite-size cubes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Thread on skewers and marinate in one cup of coconut milk for at least 1 hour.
  3. Preheat grill to medium high heat. Grill pork for 15 to 20 minutes. Baste meat often with the remaining cup of coconut milk while grilling. Serve with satay sauce (as follows).
  5. Put all sauce ingredients in the blender or food processor. Process/blend for 30 seconds.
  6. Pour sauce into the top of a double boiler. Place top of double boiler over direct heat (you will need to boil water in the bottom of the double boiler separately) and bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Move top of double boiler from heat into the bottom of the double boiler containing the boiling water (are you confused yet? LOL). Cook sauce for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Thin to desired consistency with water or additional coconut milk. Serve over grilled meat.

This was very good. I had to make my pork on a George Forman Grill because of the weather here, so I marinated and grilled boneless pork loin chops and then cut them up before serving them. They cooked in the same 30 minutes as the sauce and both turned out wonderfully. We really liked this satay sauce much more than the ones that use peanut butter. Thanks for another great recipe Muffin Goddess! Made for PAC Spring 2013.

Oh this is lovely, so full of flavor you will believe you were in the islands for sure. I followed this exactly, and marinated for the time indicated. Grill the pork up, after threading it on the skewers and grilled perfectly. Added the satay sauce, using the method mentioned~(not confusing) and it became delightfully thickened, and was so yummy! It makes a lot, so you might wanted to cut it down if using less pork. This was totally over the top good, and so very glad to make such a delightful dish! Made for ZWT7
