Pork Tenderloin Kabobs

Yield 4 servings

When it comes to kabobs, the magic is in the mix. For these Southeast Asian-inspired kabobs, juicy cubes of garlic-ginger marinated pork and flame-kissed onions, peppers, & zucchini create a rainbow of delightful summer flavors melded into one bountiful meal.

Ingredients

  • 1½ lbs. pork tenderloin (trimmed of silver skin) cut in 2-inch cubes, about 16-18 pieces.
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon ginger juice, or 1" of fresh ginger finely grated
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon sriracha (optional)
  • 4 green onions, cut in 3" pieces
  • 2 zucchinis, ribboned or thinly sliced
  • 2 medium red peppers, cut into 2" pieces
  • San-J Thai Peanut dipping sauce
  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • 4-6 12" wooden* or metal skewers

Instructions

  • In a glass baking dish or bowl, mix the ingredients for the marinade and add the pork. Cover with a plate and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (up to 12).
  • When ready to cook, remove the pork from the fridge. Skewer the meat, alternating each piece with a piece of green onion, a folded ribbon of zucchini, and a piece of pepper. Place on a rimmed baking sheet until ready to grill.
  • Preheat grill to high, then reduce to medium-high. Clean the grates well to prevent sticking. 
  • Place the skewers on the grill, cover, and cook for a total of 10-12 minutes, turning every few minutes.
  • Remove from the grill, place on a platter, and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Serve with the Thai Peanut dipping sauce.

Notes

*Wooden skewers should be soaked in water for at least 1 hour before grilling.
