Marinated Pork Kabobs Recipe

Marinated Pork Kabobs Recipe

This recipe was originally for lamb, but I adapted it to pork and adjusted the spices. After tasting these flavorful kabobs, my husband became an instant fan of this recipe. It's always requested when the grill comes out for the season. -Bobbie Jo Mller, Fallon, Nevada
