Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 4

Ingredients

  1. 1 cup coconut milk
  2. 1/2 cup Compliments Creamy Peanut Butter
  3. 11/2 tablespoons Compliments Soya Sauce
  4. 1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  5. 11/4 pounds pork tenderloin
  6. 1/4 cup firmly packed Light Brown Sugar
  7. 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Method

  1. In a small saucepan, combine coconut milk, peanut butter, 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce, and red pepper over medium-high heat. 
  2. Whisk often until smooth and warm, 2 to 3 minutes. 
  3. Remove from heat and keep warm.
  4. Preheat oven broiler to high. 
  5. Cut pork crosswise into 3 equal portions (each should be 3-4 inches long). 
  6. With a long, sharp knife, cut pieces lengthwise into slices about 1/4-inch thick. 
  7. Lay slices out in a single layer in a nonstick broiler pan. 
  8. In a small bowl, mix together remaining soy sauce, sugar, and garlic. 
  9. Using a small spoon spread half of the sugar mixture in a thin layer over meat slices.
  10. Broil meat 6 inches from heat until well browned (sugar will brown quickly), 2-3 minutes. 
  11. With tongs, turn meat over. 
  12. Spread with remaining sugar mixture and return to broiler. 
  13. Broil until browned and meat is no longer pink in center (cut to test), about 2 more minutes. 
  14. Transfer meat to a serving platter and spoon peanut sauce into a bowl. Offer sauce to add to meat to taste.
