INGREDIENTS: SERVES 4 - Makes 8 aappetizers


●  1½ cups coconut milk
●  ¼ cup peanut butter
●  2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
●  ¼ cup soy sauce
●  4 cloves garlic, minced
●  2 Thai chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped
●  2 tablespoons cilantro
●  Salt
●  1½ pounds pork tenderloin**SEE COOK'S NOTES**, angle cut into ¼ inch thick slices about 3 inches by 2 inches
●  Wooden skewers, soaked for 2 hours


Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, add pork and let marinate 2 to
4 hours.


●  1 tablespoon vegetable oil
●  ½ cup finely chopped onion
●  2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
●  1 Thai red chile pepper, finely chopped
●  ¼ cup soy sauce
●  2 tablespoons lime juice
●  1½ cups coconut milk
●  1 teaspoon ground coriander
●  1 teaspoon cumin
●  1 cup chunky peanut butter
●  1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro


1.  Heat the oil in a skillet and add the onion, garlic and chili. Sautè for about 4 minutes.

2.  Stir in the soy sauce, lime juice, coconut milk, coriander,  and cumin. Thoroughly blend
     the peanut butter into the mixture.  Bring the sauce to a simmer over low heat, stirring
3.  Stir in the cilantro and remove from the heat. Preheat the grill. 

4.  Remove the pork from the marinade and thread on skewers. Grill for 7 to 8 minutes or
     until cooked through.

5.  Serve with the sauce.

1.  Pork loin will work here as well,  but the strips should be pounded and tenderized before threading
     on the skewer.  This will assure their tenderness.  Satay requires very tender meat to begin with as
     it would be annoying to get a tough piece of meat,  as there is no cutting with a knife involved.
