Sweet & Sticky Korean Pork Skewers

Sweet & Sticky Korean Pork Skewers are marinated overnight and grilled up to perfection!

Making Kabobs for dinner is always a great option, especially when it is warm outside. You can throw vegetables and meat right on a skewer and cook it all at once!

Sweet & Sticky Korean Pork Skewers

Starting with a Pork Tenderloin, cut it into chunks. Remember to cut against the grain always! This will ensure it’s even more tender!

After you’ve cut the pork into chunks place it in a bowl, add your marinade. Then place your pear slices right on top of the raw meat. The pear slices will help tenderize the pork. Just don’t forget to throw the pear slices out when you’re finished , since they have touched the raw meat we will not be eating them just using them for the marinade!

Cover the bowl and let it sit in the fridge over night.

When you’re ready to start making your kabobs, Heat up your grill.

Slice your veggies. I used zucchini, onions, and three different kinds of peppers! Sprinkle a little salt and garlic powder on them. Then drizzle them with olive oil.

Place your meat and vegetables on the skewers alternating between them. Slide them on one by one. For example: one zucchini, one pepper, one onion, one piece of pork, and so on and so forth.

If you are using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them for a few hours beforehand. This will prevent the skewers from catching on fire!

Place the skewers on the grill. Cook for about five minutes then turn the skewer around. Cooking the other side.

When pork reaches 145 degrees internally its fully cooked. Remove skewers from the grill. Serve with Rice and enjoy!

    I don’t eat meat, but I can imagine that marinade would be amazing on veggies, tofu, etc as well! Sounds delish!
