Curried Pork Satay

With Spring here and warmer weather on the horizon, it’s time to dust off the cob webs from the grill and start collecting some great grilling recipes.  Here is an easy one to start with that is a great palate pleaser.  It is a curried pork satay.  Satay is strips or pieces of meat that are soaked in a spicy marinade and skewered for grilling.  This is one of the easiest to do even if you have a small grill.  The meat cooks quickly.  Simply serve it on a bed of rice with a fruit relish or your favorite vegetable.



1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup dry red or white wine

1 tablespoon sugar

2 teaspoons curry powder

1/2 – 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (use  more or less depending on how spicy you want it)

2 1/2 pounds lean, boneless pork loin cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes.

Next Step:

In a large bowl, stir together the soy sauce, oil, wine, sugar, curry powder and pepper flakes.  Add the cubed pork, toss  to coat.  Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning occasionally to fully  coat meat.  Prepare the grill.  Remove  the pork from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels.  Boil the remaining marinade and reserve it for later.  Thread the meat on the skewers.  Arrange on the grill rack.  Cook, turning frequently and brushing with t he reserved marinade until cooked.  Takes about 20 minutes. Do not over cook.  Transfer to your serving plates and enjoy.

Cooks Note: 

If  using wooden skewers be sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to keep them from burning.  You may also want to try a tender cut of lamb but it will only need to cook for about 10 minutes.
