Indonesian Pork Tenderloin Skewers

A perfect combination of sweet, salty and savory combined with a moist pork tenderloin. Serve on a warm bed of rice. Great dish for family dinners, bbq's, parties. Easy to make and packed with flavor.


1 1/2 lbs pork tenderloin, cut into 1 inch piece
2 garlic cloves
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1 tablespoon ginger root, fresh or 1 teaspoon dried ginger 
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons coriander seeds, crushed
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup butter, melted


1 In a food processor, process garlic, green onions, ginger, lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, coriander, and red pepper flakes. Puree until almost smooth. Pour in broth and butter and mix again.
2 Place pork cubes in large resealable bag and pour mixture over meat. Marinate in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight.
3 Preheat grill to medium heat. Remove pork cubes from bag and thread onto skewers. In small saucepan, boil the marinade for 5 minutes. Reserve a small amount for basting and set the remainder aside to serve as a dipping sauce.
4 Lightly oil preheated grill. Grill for 10-15 minutes, or until well-browned, turning and brushing frequently with cooked marinade. Serve with dipping sauce. Warm rice on the side would be perfect.
