1/2 kilo pork tenderloin, sliced into long flat strips
1/2 cup peanut butter, sweet and creamy variety
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup brewed soy sauce
3 tablespoons fresh green lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1. Place pork slices in a bowl. Whisk peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, and lemon juice. Add garlic, pepper and turmeric powder.
2. Pour half of the mixture over the pork, mixing thoroughly. Reserve the remaining marinade for the sauce. Marinate for at least 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
3. Cook marinated pork over charcoal or by pan-grilling. Cook the reserved marinade and allow to simmer for about 2 minutes until it thickens. Serve with the pork satay.
The marinade is also perfect for chicken. Use chicken breast or thigh fillet and slightly flatten by pounding the pieces between plastic wrap so it cooks evenly and all the way through.
