I found this recipe this morning. Tonight was "pork" night, in our rotation of meats. I had everything for the marinade (subbed ground ginger for the fresh ginger root). Just my husband and me, so I just fixed white rice to accompany the pork skewers. We both LOVED this!!!! During this "lockdown," my husband and I have been working on our yard. And I've been dreaming of the time when we can again have people over.....thinking about offering this as an appetizer.....even maybe with a piece of pineapple. So good!

I loved it! To the lady who commented on the heat, don't just cut down on the red pepper. Fresh ginger packs a mighty punch so you might want to cut that down to reduce the heat too. Hope it helps!!

Made this last night and I don't think my husband has ever raved as much about a recipe and I cook a lot...the only thing I did different is to use boneless country ribs cubed, and wisked the dressing instead of using a blender...came out great, this is a keeper!

The low sodium content really appeals to me!My husband loves spicy foods. . .Tabasco on almost everything he eats. I can no longer handle the hot stuff so I'd reduce the red pepper.We'll try this for sure. . .with less red pepper!

I prepared and my son grilled these and we all absolutely loved them - we like spicy food though. Maybe pennygirl should cut back on the red pepper flakes....I fix this again any time.
