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

"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!"
