Balsamic Pork Skewers are so flavorful and delicious! Grilled to perfection and served up with pineapple, onions and sweet peppers for the best summer meal!
Balsamic Pork Skewers
Grilling season is officially here and today I have one heck of a recipe for you. My husband agreed to help me out with a few grilling recipes to share with you this summer. We had so much fun putting this delicious Balsamic Pork Skewers Recipe together.
We mixed up a quick marinade of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh garlic and a few spices. We cut the pork into bite- sized chunks and let it marinate for about an hour.
We used Boneless Country Style Ribs for this recipe but I think pork loin would work well too. We cut up some fresh pineapple, a red onion and a few sweet peppers.
It seems like the veggies always fall off of the skewers so we decided to throw them into an iron skillet on the grill. They cooked more evenly and were perfect served alongside the tender pork. Best idea ever!
Tony built a fire in the grill using dried oak and I swear this pork was the best thing I've ever tasted. I absolutely love the flavor from the wood smoke.
I am going to try to talk him into making a video of how this works. I can build a charcoal fire but I have no clue about starting with actual wood. What do you think? Would you like to see how that works?
I could barely stand waiting to taste these pork skewers! The kids were circling the grill and we were all starving! I was impressed with how flavorful the pork skewers actually were. The flavors of the marinade were delicious. We will be making this again and again this summer.
Grilling gets me to thinking that I'd love to have a barbecue restaurant one of these days. Of course I come to my senses and realize that I really like the job I have now. Growing up in a restaurant, I know it is not easy, its crazy- hard work. I think for now I will stick to cooking for my family and sharing the recipes with you!
