Meet the Cook: Necessity was the "mother" of this recipe! I'd already marinated the pork before realizing we were short on kabob vegetables. In place of them, I used apples I had on hand. This has since become one of my most requested dishes. I have prepared these tangy skewers for just the two of us - my husband and I, married only last July, are both in the military - and for friends. -Cheryl Plainte, Minot, North Dakota

  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup honey mustard
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-1/2 pounds pork tenderloin, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 5 medium unpeeled tart apples


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag or shallow glass container, combine the first six ingredients; mix well. Reserve 1/2 cup for basting and refrigerate. Add pork to remaining marinade and turn to coat. Seal bag or cover container; refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Cut the apples into 1-1/2-in. cubes. Alternate pork and apples on metal or soaked wooden skewers.
  3. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat, for 3 minutes on each side. Baste with the reserved marinade. Continue turning and basting for 8-10 minutes or until meat juices run clear and apples are tender. Yield: 6 servings.

"Yummy! I used granny smith apples and substituted teriyaki instead of soy sauce. SO GOOD! Will definitely make again."

"I made a variation on this recipe (since the weather wasn't good for grilling) by using sliced pork tenderloin, marinated and then baked in a pan with the apple slices @ 350F for 45 mins. or so - turned out really nice!"
