Week 20: Satay Pork with Peanut Sauce

The Recipe
250g pork cut into 1/4" slices

1 tbsp soya sauce
1 clove garlic
2 tsp fresh ginger
1/4 tsp ground chili or 1/2 fresh chili
1/4 tsp cumin
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp sesame seeds
1/2 lime
Mix everything together. Put meat and satay in a bag and shake to coat. Marinate for at least 30 minutes before cooking.

Peanut sauce
1/2 small onion
1 clove garlic
1-1.5 fresh chili
1 tsp oil
2 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 lime
1 tbsp soya sauce
2 tsp sugar

Heat the oil in a small pot and cook onion, garlic and chili for a couple of minutes. Add 1 dl (7 tbsp) water, peanut butter, lime, soya and sugar. Let the sauce simmer for a couple of minutes until it's reduced a bit.

Serve the satay with rice and a nice salad.

The Verdict
Very yummy. DH didn't care much for the peanut sauce, but I loved it, and it was really easy to make, so I may just do that again another day, and then make another sauce for him. Definitely worth a repeat. Oh, and I used chunky peanut butter which turned out to be a good thing. I'm not sure it would have been as good with smooth.
