To maximize your time, prep your side dishes while the pork is marinating. If you plan to grill the skewers, heat a grill to medium-high and grill, uncovered, for 3 minutes on each side. 



  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1/4 inch slices
  • 1/3 cup No Sugar Added SunButter
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice


  1. In a medium bowl, combine coconut aminos, sliced green onions, coconut sugar, minced cilantro, chili sauce, sesame oil, and minced garlic. Place pork pieces into a shallow dish and cover with marinade, reserving 2 tablespoons of marinade for the sauce. Cover the dish and marinate the pork in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to overnight.
  2. Thread pork sliced onto metal or soaked wooden skewers, adding 2-3 slices per skewer. Discard the marinade. Turn your oven broiler on high. Move an oven rack 3-4 inches below the broiler. Place skewers on a parchment-paper lined baking sheet and broil for 3-4 minutes on each side, until juices run clear. If you want a bit more color or char on the pork, broil for an additional minute — just watch closely so they don’t burn!
  3. While the skewers are broiling, make the sauce. Combine the reserved 2 tablespoons of marinade, SunButter, lime juice, and hot water. Stir until smooth. Add additional hot water to reach desired consistency.
  4. Serve garnished with cilantro and alongside sauce.


No pork on hand? Use boneless, skinless chicken thighs.

Don’t have a broiler in your oven? Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F and cook for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through.
