  1. In a medium bowl, mix peanut butter, green onions, soy sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, garlic, coriander, and cayenne pepper; add pork, and stir to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill for high heat. Thread marinated pork, water chestnuts, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and sweet onion alternately onto skewers. Transfer remaining marinade to a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and cook for several minutes.
  3. Lightly oil grate. Cook skewers for 10 minutes, or to desired doneness. Turn skewers while grilling to cook evenly, and brush with boiled marinade during last few minutes.

Great flavor, but I recommend using mushrooms instead of water chestnuts--they are not a traditional thai ingredient and they break easily when you try to skewer them.

I found that the peanut butter marinade/sauce was lacking in any complex flavors. Very bland for a Thai recipe.

Delicious! I wanted to try this but don't have a grill so I made it as sort of a stew instead by simply adding three tablespoons of water and letting it cook in a pot for 30 minutes on low.

I served this for guests and everyone raved about how great it was! I will definately make this again.

I made it as a stir fry and served it over rice--my husband loved it!

This was soooo delicious. I served these to my neighbor who is from Thailand and she thought it was very good as well.The water chestnuts break in half when you try to put them on the stick, so I used a toothpick to make a hole in them first so they wouldn't break.

I'm giving this 5 stars based soley on my boyfriends opinion (I'm don't eat pork) He lived in Thialand for 2.5 years and really misses the food. I surprised him with this one day we took the grill to the lake he was SUPER impressed. Thanks for the recipe!
