These flavorful kabobs are a great way to bring the whole family together by the grill!



  • 2½ to 3 lbs (1.13 to 1.36 kg) cut into 1½-inch cubes pork tenderloin 8 metal or wooden skewers



In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together all marinade ingredients until well blended. Reserve ¼ cup marinade for basting kebobs. Pour remaining marinade over pork cubes in a large, heavy-duty, resealable plastic bag. Seal bag and turn several times to coat pork evenly with marinade. Refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours.

Preheat grill to medium-high setting. Thread pork cubes onto skewers and discard marinade in bag. Brush grill rack lightly with oil. Grill kabobs for about 8 minutes total, turning every 2 minutes or so. Baste generously with reserved marinade during last minute of cooking time. Really soak ’em with sauce! Serve hot.

For gluten-free, use GF hoisin sauce and Tamari soy sauce.

If using wooden skewers, soak them in cold water for at least an hour before using to prevent burning.
