Pork Kabobs – Perfect for a Family Cookout.
Asian Pork Kabobs are the most delicious thing you’ll put in your mouth all grilling season! There are tons of big bold flavors you’re going to love!
I’m all about Asian flavors in all kinds of meals. These Asian Pork Kabobs have a mouthwatering combination of garlic, soy sauce and fresh ginger seasoning the meat and vegetables. This recipe was previously seen on the Miss Information blog, and now you can see it here too!
I love this combination of pineapple, red onion, sweet orange bell peppers and grape tomatoes with the pork tenderloin. The hoisin sauce adds a great depth of flavor, too. Of course, you could swap out the pork for chicken breasts if you have that on hand instead.
This is such an impressive-looking dish to serve at a backyard cookout with friends and family. It looks like it took you forever, but really this recipe is so simple. And oh so delicious! The pineapple and pork and vegetables all get so scrumptiously caramelized on the grill. Are you drooling yet? Serve these kabobs over a bed of brown rice, or with a simple green salad for an easy weeknight meal. You can prep everything ahead of time so you just have to pop them on the grill when you get home from work or the beach or wherever.

How Long Do You Cook Kabobs on the Grill?
Most Kabobs will need about 2-3 minutes per side to cook. Allow for about 10-15 minutes to cook kabobs on the grill from start to finish. Make sure that all sides of the kabobs touch the grill during the cooking process. This gives the meat, pineapples, and vegetables a chance to caramelize and develop a crisp texture and amazing flavor.
Chicken Kabobs might take a minute or two longer for safety – it will depend on the heat of your grill and how thick your pieces of chicken are. A great recipe to start with is my primer on How to Grill Chicken Kabobs.
How Long Would You Cook Pork Skewers in the Oven?
Preheat the oven to 350-degrees F and place the skewers on a rimmed baking sheet. Cook them for 10-15 minutes until the meat is cooked through.
What Other Veggies Taste Good on Kabobs?
Feel free to explore the produce section and experiment with other vegetables. Bell peppers, tomatoes and onions are honestly the best ones to grill. Other veggies that grill well includes zucchini, mushrooms, and yellow squash.
