Grilled Pork Chops with Satee Sauce

Satee Sauce is a peanut sauce enjoyed in Southeast Asia and absolutely fantastic with Pork Chops. The sliced cucumbers, chopped peanuts and lime wedges are optional as garnish, but you can do without them! Enjoy!

Pork Chop From Lobster Gram

  • 1/2 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 1/3 cup well-stirred canned unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons roasted red-chile paste or red-curry paste (preferably Thai Kitchen)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped shallot
  • 2 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 thin (1/3-inch) bone-in pork chops (1 1/2 pounds total)
  • sliced cucumber
  • chopped peanuts
  • lime wedges
Recipe Directions:
Purée all ingredients except pork chops in a blender. Transfer to a small saucepan and bring to a simmer, stirring, over medium-low heat. Thin sauce if desired with 1 to 2 tablespoons water. Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over medium-hot charcoal (medium-high heat for gas). Pat pork chops dry, then sprinkle all over with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Oil grill rack, then grill pork chops, covered only if using a gas grill, turning once, until just cooked through, about 5 minutes total. Serve with sauce. Cooks' note: Pork Chops can be grilled in a hot lightly oiled large (2-burner) ridged grill pan over medium-high heat, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve with: perfect steamed rice or cumin herb rice pilaf
