  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    If using wooden satay sticks, set them in water to soak while you prepare the satay (this will keep them from burning).
  3. Step 3

    Cut the pork into thin strips that are approximately 1 to 3 inches wide.
  4. Step 4

    Combine all other ingredients to make a marinade, stirring well to dissolve the honey. Taste the marinade. This marinade should taste both sweet and salty; if you'd prefer it to be spicier, add more cayenne pepper.
  5. Step 5

    Pour marinade over the pork. Stir the meat well and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 24 hours.
  6. Step 6

    When ready to cook, skewer the meat, weaving it lengthwise along the stick. Position the meat near one end of the stick, leaving the other half as a handle for turning.
  7. Step 7

    Brush grill grates with oil and then lay satay on the grill for 5 to 7 minutes, or until meat sizzles and browns. Turn sticks and grill the other side another 5 minutes, or until cooked but still tender.
