This recipe for kebabs will blow the pre-made supermarket variety right off the grill.

Let this be the summer of the homemade kebab. None of those $10/lb. pre-made ripoffs this year. Besides, who wants a slice of green pepper every other chunk of meat? Try your hand at these easy kebabs, featuring notoriously succulent pork tenderloin inter-skewered with incredibly grillable pineapple. Brushed with a simple honey glaze, they'll make those supermarket kebabs look like stick figures. 

Although the recipe calls for broiling, feel free to toss these on the barbie for extra flavor.

Servings: 4


1 cup long-grain rice
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
1 1 1/4 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 medium pineapple, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 red onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 cup grape tomatoes
1/4 cup honey
  1. Soak 8 wooden skewers in water for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Cook the rice according to the package directions. Just before serving, fold in the cilantro.
  3. Meanwhile, heat broiler. Thread the pork, pineapple, onion, and tomatoes onto the skewers. Season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  4. Place the skewers on a foil-lined baking sheet and broil, turning once and brushing occasionally with the honey, until browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Serve with the rice.
