Great thai pork recipe. The peanut sauce is not included in the calorie count. I make my own, but you can choose to buy one instead.

Recipe Ingredients for Thai Pork Loin with Peanut Sauce

4 cup, chopped Broccoli
48 oz Pork, Fresh, Loin, Whole
1 med yellow onion
4 servings of Complete Seasoning
2 cloves of garlic
1 lemon, juiced
2 oz Unsalted Peanuts, chopped or crushed

Recipe Directions for Thai Pork Loin with Peanut Sauce

  1. Prep

  2. Make or buy a peanut sauce for cooking meat. Mine calls for 2 tbsp of creamy peanut butter, 3tsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp ABC sweet soy sauce, 1 tsp curry powder, 1 tbsp ginger powder, 1/4 tsp sea salt, 2 garlic cloves, 1 tsp of sesame oil, and 1/4 cup of water. Mix and blend until smooth.

  3. Chop 3/4 onion into rings or slivers. Dice the other 1/4 onion. Add 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic to this and set aside.

  4. Wash the broccoli and cut into pieces of desired size and set aside.

  5. Remove excess fat from pork loin (it's not needed for this). Slice across the loin to make several steaks (no more than 1/2 inch thick). This makes about 20 steaks for me. Use a little Complete seasoning on all of the pork steaks.

  6. Cooking

  7. Heat a large pan to medium-high. Add just enough canola (or vegetable) oil to coat the bottom. Add the onions the pan and stir until they brown to a caramel color. Set the cooked onions aside. This helps to season the pan.

  8. Now add a little more oil to the pan and put as many pork steaks down on the pan as possible (for me, it's about half of the steaks). When the steaks are almost fully cooked on one side, add some lemon juice to it, along with salt and pepper.

  9. When the first side is done, flip over and pour peanut sauce on each steak. Pour about half the peanut sauce over the steaks. It does not have to cover them entirely. Top the steaks with broccoli, chopped peanuts (to desired amount), and cooked onions. Remember to save enough for second batch if needed. Cover the dish for 5 mins and allow juices to steam the broccoli. When the broccoli is steamed, the dish is ready. You may check the pork steaks, also, to make sure that there is no pink in the middle.

  10. Serving size is 2 steaks and an appropriate amount of broccoli.
