Tender Pork Kabobs Recipe
Tender Pork Kabobs Recipe – marinated with wine or beer and grilled to perfection. Perfect for a summer barbecue.
Hey Guys! Happy Monday! Can you believe Memorial Day Weekend is just a few days away! This means (hopefully) nice weather, fun and good food. Can’t wait to fire up the grill and make some pork kabobs!
People around me seem to be obsessed with kabobs/kebabs. So am I. When it comes to grilling, these are one of my favorite things to prepare.
I’ll be honest, not everyone eats the veggies on the skewer, but I do. I sometimes don’t even bother to add them and just put meat on it, but for the purpose of the pictures, I did today.
I grew up eating pork pretty often. I know it isn’t some people’s favorite meat, but I used to love it. Now, I don’t cook it very often.
Maybe like once every 2 months. But I like to marinate it for kabobs. This is my go-to recipe for a pork meat marinade and I love how tender and flavorful these turn every time.
The interesting thing is that I’ve tried making the marinade with either white wine (I know pork is red meat and goes well with red wine, but not in this recipe) or beer.
The flavor is slightly different, but both produce tender pieces of meat. Feel free to try either way. The other ingredients in the recipe are the same, you just switch the wine with beer.
