How to give any main dish a wow factor? Add a touch of sweetness to a savory dish. These Grilled Pork Pineapple Skewers are tangy and smoky with just the right amount of sweetness from fresh pineapple. You can serve them with just about any side dish for a barbecue meal that will keep you coming back for more.
Here’s how to do it.
- 1.25 pounds boneless pork loin chops, cut into 1-1.5 ”pieces
- 1.5 cups pineapple chunks
- 1 red bell pepper, roughly chopped
- 1 yellow bell pepper, roughly chopped
- 1 red onion, cut into chunks
- 1/2 cup Primal Kitchen® Golden BBQ Sauce
- 3.5 tablespoons Primal Kitchen® Avocado Oil, divided
- 1 tablespoon. honey
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
In a bowl, combine Primal Kitchen Golden BBQ Sauce with 2 tablespoons of avocado oil, honey, apple cider vinegar, paprika, pepper, garlic, onion, and salt. Toss the pork pieces into the marinade and place the bowl in the refrigerator for two hours.
Mix the diced bell peppers and onions in the remaining avocado oil along with a pinch of salt and pepper.
After the pork has marinated, skewer the pork, vegetables, and pineapple chunks on skewers in an alternating pattern. Rub the remaining marinade from the bowl over the skewers.
Note: If you are using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them for 30 minutes beforehand.
Preheat your grill over medium-high heat. Once very hot, place the skewers on the grill. Let them grill for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature of the pork is at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
Let the skewers rest for a few minutes. Top with chopped cilantro and serve alongside more golden barbecue sauce.
Tip: The amount of time it takes for the skewers to cook will vary depending on the size of the pork cut, the fat content of the pork cut you use, and how well you would like the pork cooked. When in doubt, use a meat thermometer.
