Grilled Pork Kabobs

You get a meal on a stick with these grilled pork kabobs. Skewer the ingredients the day before, then they're ready to pop on the grill at a moment's notice.

The trick to great kabobs is to use ingredients that are all finish cooking at the same time. Pork cooks quickly, especially when cut into kabob sized cubes, so use veggies that won't require a long time on the grill.

And if you want to include ingredients that may take longer to grill than the pork, precook 'em. For instance, potatoes would take longer to cook than pork, so chunks of tater can be grilled or baked ahead of time before threading onto skewers with the pork and other veggies.




Pork Kabobs Recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound of lean pork, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • Assorted Veggie chunks, including... mushrooms yellow summer squash zucchini squash precooked potato chunks cauliflower broccoli precooked carrots onion petals peeled apple (not exactly a veggie, but try it!)
  • bamboo or metal skewers
  • spray cooking oil
  • salt and pepper


Thread the ingredients on the skewers, spray with a light coating of cooking oil, and season with salt and pepper.

Grill the pork skewers over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes, turning over once halfway through cooking. Be sure to leave a little room on the end of each skewer so you can add a bright red cherry tomato after grilling. (tomatoes can become mushy when grilled - a fresh one added to the skewer really looks good)
