I have been craving Asian Food and anything with peanut sauce. When I googled a pork recipe with peanut sauce and one popped up from For the Love of Cooking, I knew I found a winner! All I had to do is prepare this delicious recipe. I hope you like it as much as we did!
For the pork chops
- 1/2 cup light coconut milk
- 1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 2 tbls. Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- 1 1/2 tbls. Fresh lime juice
- 1 1/2 tbls. Dark Brown Sugar
- 1 Large Cloves Garlic, minced
- 1 Tsp ground coriander
- 3 Circle B Ranch Pork Chops
- Sea Salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
For the Sesame and Peanut Noodles
- 3 tbls Sesame Noodles
- 12 ounces Linguine
For the Peanut Dressing
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3 tbls of soy sauce
- 2 tbls of rice vinegar
- 1 tbls of canola oil
- 1 tbls grated fresh ginger
- 1 tbls of honey
- 1 tbls of hot sauce
- 1 tsp of sesame oil
- Zest and Juice of 1/2 lime
- 2 green scallions
- 1/4 cup of roasted peanuts for garnish
- 1/3 red bell pepper
- 1/2 cup loosely packed chopped cilantro (I used basil)
For the pork chops
- In a glass bowl whisk the coconut milk, peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, garlic and coriander to make the peanut sauce.
- Put the pork chops in a ziplock bag and pour half the marinade on top (reserve the other half). Squish it around so the meat is evenly coated. Place the meat in the refrigerator and marinate for 4 hours. Remove from the refrigerator 20 minutes prior to cooking to let the meat come to room temp.
- Heat your grill. Once the grill is hot place the chops on the grill. Cook for 5 minutes on each side. Test for doneness. Do not overcook the pork chops. The internal temp should be 135-140 degrees.
- Serve the reserved peanut sauce with the pork chops.
For the Sesame and Peanut Noodles and Peanut Dressing
- Make the peanut dressing: Place the peanut butter in a large measuring bowl and whisk in the soy sauce, vinegar, canola oil, ginger, honey, hot sauce, sesame oil and lime zest i a small bowl. Thin out with the starch pasta water if needed a little at a time.
- Cook the pasta until al dente and pour the sauce over the noodles and serve with the pork chop.
