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.
