This recipe makes 4 servings
Ingredients:

Skewers

  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into strips
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes

Sauce

  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • ¼ cup broth
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Sriracha hot sauce (optional)
Preparation:

Thread pork through wooden skewers and season with a sprinkling of salt, pepper and other preferred seasonings. Coat a large skillet with nonstick oil spray and warm over medium-high heat. Add skewers and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until they’re cooked through. Add more cooking spray, if necessary, to prevent skewers from sticking. Alternatively, you can easily grill your skewers. 

To make the sauce, mix peanut butter, broth, water and soy sauce. Stir until smooth and completely combined. Add a few optional dashes of hot sauce, if desired, and mix.

You can either spoon a bit of sauce on the second side after flipping, while skewers are cooking, and serve extra sauce for dipping, or cook skewers plain and serve the sauce as dipping sauce.   

Nutrition is based on 1 tablespoon sauce for dipping (you will have leftover sauce)
