Buffalo Pork Skewers with Blue Cheese Sauce

Makes 6 Servings

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 15 mins

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
Oil Spray
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco, divided
6 ribs celery, cut crosswise in halves or thirds, then lengthwise into sticks

 

Blue Cheese Sauce:

2/3 cup blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons milk, (low-fat or nonfat is okay)
Salt

 

Special Equipment:

18 6-inch skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes if they’re wood or bamboo.

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler to 145° and arrange a rack 4 inches from the heat. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking oil.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the blue cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, and milk. Season with salt and set aside. In another small bowl, combine the butter and 2 tablespoons of the hot sauce. Set both mixtures aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the pork and remaining 2 tablespoons of hot sauce. Season generously with salt. Thread the pork onto skewers and arrange on prepared baking sheet. Broil for 4 minutes. Turn and broil until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove pork from broiler and let rest at least 3 minutes. While pork is resting, brush both sides with the butter mixture.
  4. Serve the skewers and celery sticks with the blue cheese sauce on the side.

*Note: Instead of making the blue cheese sauce from scratch, you can purchase ready-made blue cheese dressing.
