Asian Pork Kabobs are a delicious way to change up your hum-drum grilling. Forget the burgers and hot dogs, these kabobs will wow your guests!
Summertime means spending time outside, and lots of grilling. I love keeping the heat outdoors, and the mess to a minimum. These Asian Pork Kabobs are the perfect meal for your family or a big party. They're super simple but will shake up your grilling routine with the deliciously bold flavors. Sweet bell peppers, red onion, grape tomatoes, and pineapple are the perfect compliment to a juicy pork tenderloin. I especially love the pork kabob marinade of ginger, soy sauce, and garlic together and it really brings out the flavor of the pork and pineapple when it grilled. I seriously cannot get enough of that combination!
Asian Pork Kabobs Recipe
- 1 lb pork tenderloin cut into cubes
- 2 orange bell peppers cut into pieces
- 1 pint grape tomatoes
- 1 red onion cut into wedges
- 1 pineapple cut into large chunks
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
- 1 tsp chili paste
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tsp minced fresh ginger
In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, hoisin sauce, chili paste, garlic and ginger. Reserve 1/2 of the marinade in a bowl.
In a large bowl, combine pork pieces and 1/2 of marinade. Marinate for at least 15 minutes.
Heat grill to medium heat.
Thread pork, bell pepper, onion and pineapple pieces onto skewers. Discard marinade that pork was in.
Place skewers grill.
Grill for 5 minutes. Brush with reserved marinade and turn over. Grill an additional 5 minutes. Brush with reserved marinade and grill for 25 additional minutes turning occasionally to prevent burning or until pork is fully cooked.
**If using bamboo skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before using.
These are so simple you can change up the veggies to suit your tastes if you're not a fan of one thing or another. Fresh-from-the-garden zucchini and summer squash would be delicious as well, especially in late summer when they're in season. You can also make these with chicken instead of the pork tenderloin. You'll want to make these Asian Pork Kabobs again and again!
I usually serve this grilled kabob recipe with a simple green salad and rolls or brown rice and you have dinner ready for your family. If you're planning a cookout, have everyone bring side dishes while you whip up these impressive-looking kabobs. Your taste buds will thank you, and everyone will ask for the recipe! What are you waiting for? Pick up what you need at your local farm stand and grocery store, and get grilling!
