This recipe was inspired by Nigerian beef suya, or beef skewers seasoned with chili and peanuts. The pan sauce has a simple base, but gets lots of character from the lime juice and chopped peanuts that are stirred in at the end. Warmed flatbread or steamed rice would be a great accompaniment.




Don't add the butter all at once when making the pan sauce. Whisking it in 1 piece at a time creates an emulsified sauce that's glossy and velvety. If the sauce breaks and the butter separates, drizzle in a few drops of water while swirling the pan until the sauce is once again shiny and emulsified.

Great recipe
The flavors were excellent. I've been off the pork tenderloin bandwagon for quite a while, but trying some different recipes lately, and this was a home run. One thing- I checked the temp or the pork at about 8 minutes in the oven and good thing I did- it was already over 140 degrees. So monitor the temp carefully, don't go by time.

This was so surprisingly good! The lime really stood out, making a tangy sauce.
