Asian Pork and Pineapple Skewers
Serve with rice topped with chopped green scallions.
1/2 pound pork tenderloin
8 (1-inch) cubes fresh pineapple
8 (1-inch) pieces red bell pepper
Vegetable cooking spray
Marinade and Baste:
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoon orange juice
2 tablespoon grated fresh onion
4 teaspoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Dash of pepper
2 bay leaves
Trim any visible fat from pork, and cut the pork into 8 (1-inch) cubes.
In a small bowl combine brown sugar and the next 7 ingredients (brown sugar
through bay leaf). Pour half in a large zip-top heavy-duty plastic bag, making
sure that you include one bay leaf in each half; add the pork cubes. Seal the
bag, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour, turning bag occasionally. (To
keep the texture of the pork from becoming mushy, marinate it for no more than
1 hour.) Set other half of marinade aside for basting.
Remove pork from bag; discard used marinade. Discard bay leaf. Thread 4 pork
cubes, 4 pineapple cubes, and 4 bell pepper pieces alternately onto each of 2
Prepare grill. Place kebabs on grill rack coated with cooking spray, and cook
14 minutes or until done, turning and basting with reserved marinade
