TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1-1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/2 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 small sweet red pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1/2 small green pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • Hot cooked rice, optional

Directions

  • 1. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; refrigerate the pineapple. In a bowl, combine the pineapple juice, vinegar, brown sugar and pepper. Pour half of the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork. Seal and turn to coat; refrigerate for 4 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade from pork. On metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread the pork, pineapple and pepper. Grill kabobs, covered, over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender and meat is no longer pink, turning and basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Serve with rice if desired. Yield: 2 servings.
