Pork Satay

This really might be the absolute best meal I've tasted in years.  It is so so good, I could eat this once a week.  The recipe is for a marinade for pieces of pork (you could use chicken) but we took the marinated meat and turned them into shish ka bobs with the marinated pork, bell pepper, pineapple and red onion and then grilled them.

1 pound boneless stir-fry pork strips (NOTE: This amount of meat fed 3 of us with no leftovers--increase the amount of meat for more people)
3 TBSP lemon juice
2 TBSP peanut butter
2 TBSP soy sauce
1 TBSP brown sugar
1 TBSP vegetable oil
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Arrange meat in shallow dish.  Combine all ingredients and pour over meat.  Refrigerate for 4-12 hours, turning occasionally.  Thread meat onto skewers, brush with remaining marinade and grill or broil as desired.  Serve with the warm peanut dipping sauce (below).

Peanut Dipping sauce:
in small sauce pan combine
1/2 cup coconut milk
3 TBSP peanut butter
2 TBSP lemon juice
2 TBSP soy sauce
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (I thought this was a bit too spicy, so maybe reduce the amount of red pepper if you don't like spice)

Mix well, cook and stir until peanut butter melts.  Simmer 5 minutes stirring occasionally.
