Five-Spice Pork Kabobs

After losing the recipe over and over, as it was torn out of a magazine and tucked into God-knows-where, I am finally posting this.  FINALLY. 

During the week, we never have enough time to prep fancy dinners.  This is quick and easy, not to mention delicious.  I can't say enough about how much I love this sauce, it's soooooo good.  I keep telling myself that I need to make some extra for dipping after the pork is time :)

We had this with some stir-fried snap peas and lo-mein noodles.

Five-Spice Pork Kabobs


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)


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.
