I recently received this recipe from a friend who makes his own maple syrup. My family often requests these slightly sweet kabobs for our summer Sunday dinner cookout.
- 8 small new potatoes or 1 large potato, cut into 8 chunks
- 3 carrots, cut into 8 pieces (2 inches each)
- 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)
- 1 large green or large sweet red pepper
- 8 large mushrooms
- 1/4 cup butter, cubed
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1-1/2 teaspoons grated orange peel
- Place potatoes and carrots in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain.
- Cut pork into 12 equal pieces and pepper into eight chunks. Onto four metal or wood skewers, thread meat and vegetables alternately; set aside.
- In a small saucepan, combine the butter, syrup and orange peel; cook and stir over low heat until butter is melted.
- Grill kabobs, uncovered, over medium heat for 5 minutes; turn and baste with butter mixture. Cook for 12-14 minutes longer or until the meat juices run clear, turning and basting frequently. Yield: 4 servings.
