Barbecued Pork and Apple Kebabs

Late dinner… late post. This is a recipe I found on Martha Stewart’s website recently and it reminded me of yummy Fall flavors so I added it to the list. YUM!!! Did it turn out delicious! Seriously, you gotta try this. (I used a peach preserve instead of apricot but I am sure either would taste great).

1/2 cup apricot jam

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 tablespoon tomato paste

2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for grill

Coarse salt and ground pepper

1 1/2 pounds (about 1 1/2 inches each) pork tenderloin, halved lengthwise and cut into 16 cubes

1 medium red onion, cut into 8 wedges

1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cut into 8 wedges



Heat grill to medium-high. Make the sauce: In a large bowl, combine jam, vinegar, tomato paste, and 1 tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


Assemble 4 long skewers, alternating 4 pork cubes with 2 onion wedges and 2 apple wedges on each (begin with pork and end with apple). Roll skewers in remaining tablespoon oil. Season with salt and pepper.


Lightly oil grates. Place skewers on grill; cover grill, and cook, turning occasionally, until grill marks are visible, 6 to 8 minutes.


Open grill; baste skewers with some sauce, and cook, turning skewers and basting occasionally with more sauce, until pork is no longer pink in the center and is nicely glazed, 4 to 8 minutes more.
