The flavor of this marinade is just perfect. Loved the addition of the crushed red pepper flakes to give it that extra kick. I used red bell pepper as a personal preference and added some vadilia onions and some fresh squash from the garden all marinated in different marinades and cooked separate from the pork. We just loved this and will make again and again this summer. Thanks so much for sharing.
this is GOOD! and easy, inexpensive and pretty - I'd serve it to company on a bed of bulgur wheat with a side salad and be very happy with the dinner. I buy whole pork loins from Sam's club and cut them to boneless chops, the end pieces are saved to make green chile stew in the winter or pork kabobs in the summer. It does not look or taste like its an easy thing to make. Been using bamboo skewers but want to find away to thread the skewers ahead of time so I am not threading them while pouring wine for my guests, and so I will experiment with metal skewers. I always put a cherry tomato on the end of the skewer - if for no other reason than it looks pretty.
Really good marinade, it gave the meat a good flavor. I skipped the brown sugar and used less red pepper flakes. If you weren't basting, you could easily make half the marinade.
Yummy, yummy, yummy. I marinated pork chops and grilled them whole-- no skewers involved. Very good peanut sauce.
I found this recipe in TOH years ago and it's been waiting to be made ever since. Thought I'd finaly try it last night, but decided to check Zaar to see if it had reviews first lol Thus encouraged it was dinner. I used seitan instead of pork and it went over very well with both me and meateating BF (who even said it was good enough to try on his meat happy family at the farm). I added in whole button mushrooms as well with the peppers. Great marinade. Don't use cheap soy sauce! If there's one thing I've learned with any marinades it's use GOOD soy sauce. I only use Kikkoman anymore. Which mixed so yummily with the peanut butter! If you were to add a little more heat I think it would be similar to Mongolian Pork. Thanks DDW.
Everybody loved these! So simple to prepare and 10 minutes on the grill and done. I will definetly do these again! Thanks for the recipe.
This is very good! I doubled the recipe and marinated these for about 4 hours. My daughter came home while I was grilling this and said it smelled just like Chinese Food! It does have a definate Asian flair to it but is not overly sweet and the red pepper flakes add just enough kick to satisfy even my husband. Served with rice pilaf this was a very nice change from our usual kabobs. Thanks for posting, DDW!
