DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Simmer hoisin, chili garlic sauce, honey, vinegar, oil, and salt for the satay in a saucepan over medium-high. Cook marinade 5 minutes, then set it aside to cool.
  • Prepare pork, cutting it first into thirds lengthwise, then in half crosswise to make 6 pieces. Finally, slice each piece in half lengthwise to make 12 strips, each 4- to 6-inches long. Toss pork strips in the marinade, then thread strips onto skewers.
  • Rice: Bring water and salt for the rice to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in rice, cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat. Just before serving, stir in peas and vinegar, fluffing rice until well mixed.
  • Arrange satay on the grill so the skewers extend over the edge; cover and cook 3–4 minutes. Flip satay, baste with marinade, then grill until cooked through, 3–4 minutes more.
  • Cucumber Salad: Combine sugar, vinegar, salt, and pepper flakes for the dressing in a bowl; set aside.
  • To prepare the cucumbers, cut each cucumber in half lengthwise, then scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Discard seeds. Slice cucumber halves into thin slices to make a yield of 2 to 2 1/2 cups.
  • Toss cucumber and onion slices with dressing until well coated. Chill salad until ready to serve. Salad can be prepared up to 1 hour ahead.
