11/2 lbs pork shoulder, pork loin, or pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon sesame oil 3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon hoisin sauce 1 teaspoon PUR Spices Cilantro Blaze
5 minced garlic cloves
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Cilantro Blaze Peanut Sauce
1 lime zest and juice
1-1.5 teaspoons of PUR Spices Cilantro Blaze (based on heat preference)
1 cup neutral cooking oil 1 cup peanuts
2 teaspoons fish sauce (if you don't like fish sauce, sub soy sauce)
3 teaspoons sugar
2 cloves garlic
Soak about 12-15 skewers in cold water. Slice your pork into thin (1/4 inch) skewer sized strips. Combine all your ingredients for your marinade and pour over the strips. Let marinade for at least 30 minutes, but this would do great marinating overnight! Skewer your meat, and preheat the grill on high. Grill on each side for 4-5 minutes.
Combine all the ingredients into a food processor or mortar and pestle. Give it about 10 or so pulses. If you want a smoother sauce you will continue to pulse to your desired texture. If you want a chunkier peanut sauce do less than 10 pulses.
