Cubes of pork tenderloin and green pepper chunks get a spicy treatment from a combination of peanut butter, brown sugar, ginger and red pepper flakes. Reserving half of this mixture to use as a basting sauce adds an extra boost of flavor. -Ellen Koch, St. Martinville, Louisiana

"We loved this!! At the last minute, before we were going to skewer them, we realized that we were out of charcoal! So instead of kabobs, we cooked the pork up in the frying pan, removed it from the pan, and added the peppers and some onions. Stir fried those in the marinade we reserved for basting, threw the pork in, and ta-da......perfect stir fry. We served it with TOH Seasoned Couscous, wonderful together!!!"

"If your grill has four burners, turn all of them on. When heated, turn the two middle burners off, leaving the outside burners on high. Grill the kabobs over the middle burners to allow meat to be tender."
