Asian Infused Pork Kabobs

7:46 AM

After a while, don’t you run out of options for all of those summer veggies?  It’s kind of like leftover turkey at Thanksgiving.  Don’t give up just yet.  Try this awesome marinade I threw together the other night.  You’ll “already have” most of the ingredients and you’ll be so satisfied. 
I’m on a skewer kick these days.  It’s a fun way to present dinner to the kids and you can pair some great grilling foods together.  The combinations are endless, i.e., Hawaiian Kabobs, Plum Chicken Kabobs, Beef Kabobs  What a wonderful use of those summer vegetables too!  This time it’s pork and squash.  Serve with corn on the cob, some rice pilaf, a little bread and you’ve got one super-filling meal that is fun for everyone!
It’s important you allow the pork to marinate for at least 2 hours.  This helps the meat stay tender after it’s cooked.  Yum, you’re going to love it.
What You Will Need:

¾ lb pork chops, cut into 1 inch pieces
2-3 yellow squash, cut into 1 inch pieces
6-8 wooden skewers, soaked for at least 30 minutes
1 C orange juice
1 lime
1 C Hoisin Sauce
What You Already Have:
4 T low sodium soy sauce
2 T red wine vinegar
2 T rice wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp ground ginger
4 T olive oil
¼ tsp pepper
2 casserole dishes with lids
1)      Prepare marinade.

2)      Mix half of oj, lime, hoisin, soy sauce, vinegars, garlic, cumin, ginger olive oil in one casserole and mix other half of these same ingredients in second casserole dish.

3)      Put pork in one casserole and make sure covered with marinade.
4)      Put squash in other casserole and make sure covered with marinade.
5)      Cover casseroles with lids and marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
6)      After 2 hours, prepare grill.

7)      Prepare kabobs.  Alternate pork and squash on skewers.
8)      Cook until no longer pink.

9)      Transfer to platter and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
10)   Serve.
