Five-Spice Pork Kabobs
Ingredients
  • 2  tablespoons  ketchup
  • 1  tablespoon  soy sauce
  • 2  teaspoons  packed brown sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1 1/2  pounds  pork tenderloin
  • 8  bamboo or metal skewers (soak bamboo skewers in water to prevent scorching)
  • 1/4  cup  peanuts
  • 1/4  cup  cilantro sprigs
  •  Lime wedges (optional)
Directions

1. For sauce, in a small bowl combine ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar, and five-spice powder. For kabobs, trim tenderloin, slice thinly, and thread slices onto skewers. Brush skewered meat with some of the sauce.

2. Grill kabobs on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals for 3 to 4 minutes. Brush with remaining sauce. Turn kabobs; grill 3 to 4 minutes more or until fully cooked. To serve, sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro. If desired, serve lime wedges alongside.

From the Test KitchenServing Suggestion:
  • If you like, serve with cooked vermicelli or angel hair pasta and cantaloupe cut into matchstick pieces. Pass soy sauce at the table.
*Tip:
  • If time permits, soak bamboo skewers in water before using. This helps to prevent the skewers from burning.
