Fire up the grill for this Asian-inspired pork dish flavored with a spicy peanut butter-soy sauce marinade.

Yield: 6-8 servings

Difficulty Rating: Easy

Nutritional Highlights: Pork tenderloin is considered a lean cut with less than 3 grams of fat in a 3-ounce cooked serving.

Recipe Created By:


  • 4-5 pounds pork tenderloin
  • 3 cups soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons cane syrup
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1½ cups peanut butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • juice of 3 lemons


  1. Cut pork tenderloin into 1- to 2-inch cubes, and place in gallon-sized zip-close bags, dividing evenly among 2-3 bags.
  2. To prepare marinade, place all ingredients except pork in blender, and mix well.
  3. Pour equally over the meat and seal bags.
  4. Place in refrigerator and marinate at least 10-12 hours, longer if time permits.
  5. Place meat on skewers. (Pork may be cooked without skewers if grates on grill are narrow enough to prevent meat from falling through.)
  6. Sear over high heat for about 3 minutes, turning skewers every 1 minute, and then move to indirect heat until done (minimum of 176 degrees internal heat.)
