Spicy Grilled Pork Kabobs


Don't let the ingredient list intimidate you. This is a really easy, really quick recipe....perfect for a weeknight dinner. While the marinade ingredient list is indeed long, there's really no work involved. It's a simple "dump everything in a food processor" and pulse until it's liquified. The marinating time is just 30 minutes, which is all the time you need to get a ripping hot fire on your grill. And then just 6 to 8 minutes to cook it all up.


For the Pork
1-1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, cut into 1-1/2 inch chunks
Kosher salt

For the marinade
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 bunch cilantro (include stems)
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 garlic cloves
1 jalapeno, seeds and stem removed
1 teaspoon honey
1-1/2 tablespoons fennel seeds
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoons coriander seeds

For Serving/Garnish
1 small red onion, sliced
1/2 bunch cilantro
Lime wedges

  1. Season pork chunks lightly with kosher salt and put it in a Ziplock bag.
  2. Put all marinade ingredients in a food processor and pulse until liquefied. Pour marinade over pork and seal bag. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Prepare grill for direct cooking over high heat.
  4. Thread pork onto skewers, leaving a little space between the chunks. Grill directly over high heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Then flip and grill for another 3 to 4 minutes. Meat should be browned all over and charred in spots (cooked to medium with no pink).
  5. Serve the pork with cilantro sprigs and onion slices on top and lime wedges for squeezing.

Wine pairing: Zinfandel
