Ingredients:

– 1 pound pork center cut (or tenderloin)

– 1 bottle La Choy Teriyaki Stir Fry & Marinade

– Small jar of minced garlic

– 1 red pepper

– 2 cucumbers

– 1 avocado

– black sesame seeds

– Dulse Flakes (Maine Coast Sea Vegetables)

– olive oil

– red wine vinegar

– 1 lime

– You will also need disposable wooden skewers.

 

Instructions:

Grilled Teriyaki Pork:

– Cut pork into 2 inch x 2 inch cubes & marinate overnight in 1/4 cup La Choy Teriyaki Stir Fry & Marinade, and 1 teaspoon of minced garlic.

– Place pork cubes on disposable wooden skewers.

РGrill, turning frequently on a medium flame for about 10-12  minutes. (I use wood charcoal, which would be a single layer of charcoal, hot enough to be mostly gray- usually allow 20 minutes for charcoal to be ready for cooking.)

– Remove from grill, allow a minute to cool, & serve.

Summer Salad:

– Partially skin 2 cucumbers, slice thin, discarding middle portion (seeds), & chop each piece into thin strips, (~3 inch strips).

– Slice 1 red pepper into thin strips, (~ 2 inch strips).

– Cube avocado into 1 inch cubes. (use 1/2 avocado for the salad)

– Place vegetables into a salad bowl, add 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, and toss.

– sprinkle a teaspoon of black sesame seeds, and a teaspoon of Dulse Flakes onto vegetables & toss again.

– Squeeze fresh lime over the salad.

– Serve with the Grilled Teriyaki Pork Skewers.

This easy-to-prepare & easy-to-cook meal with an Asian flare is perfect for Summertime barbecues & a great idea for Father’s Day!

Portions: Women- 3 oz. of Grilled Teriyaki Pork & 1/2 of the Summer Salad, Men: 6 oz. of Grilled Teriyaki Pork & 1/2 of the Summer Salad.

This meal may be used as Meal 4 on the Remedy Recipes format. To use as Meals 2 or 3, just add brown rice & place the Grilled Teriyaki Pork over the rice. (Portions: Women- 1/2 cup brown rice, Men- 1 cup brown rice.)

I’d just like to add a few notes about some of the ingredients as well. I chose La Choy Teriyaki ¬†because it’s the lowest in sugar & sodium out of the many Teriyaki sauces that I looked at. It truly complimented the meat & created mouth-watering morsels that I really enjoyed eating! So delicious! Also, the Dulse Flakes are rich in iodine which has been stripped from much of our foods, & is a vital nutrient for healthy thyroid function. And last but not least, the black sesame seeds provide a great source of calcium and magnesium, and help to lend flavor that completes that Asian fusion taste that I was going for in this meal. I hope that you enjoy this one as much as I did.

Mangiare, Piaccia! Eat, Enjoy!
