* 1 1/2 lbs. pork tenderloin, cut into 1-in. cubes * oil spray * 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted * 1/4 c. hot sauce, such as Tabasco, divided * 6 ribs celery, cut crosswise in halves or thirds, then lengthwise into sticks
Blue Cheese Sauce : * 2/3 c. blue cheese, crumbled * 1/2 c. mayonnaise * 1/2 c. sour cream * 2 Tbsp. milk (low-fat or non-fat is okay) * salt
Special Equipment: * 18 (6-in.) skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 min. if they're wood or bamboo
What to do:
1. Preheat broiler and arrange a rack 4-in. 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. 3. In another small bowl, combine the butter, and 2 Tbsp. of hot sauce. Set both mixtures aside. 4. In a large bowl, combine the pork and remaining 2 Tbsp. of hot sauce. Season generously with salt. Thread the pork onto skewers and arrange on prepared baking sheet. Broil for 4 min. Turn and broil until tender, 4-5 mins. 5. Remove pork from broiler and let rest at least 3 mins. While pork is resting, brush both sides in the butter mixture. 6. Serve the skewers and celery sticks with the blue cheese on the side.
* Note: Instead of making the blue cheese sauce from scratch, you can purchase ready-made blue cheese dressing.
